Note: this post applies to CloudBerry Explorer PRO 1.9 and later.
As always we are adding features that our customers are requesting. This time we decided to add a feature that allows comparing contents of Amazon S3 storage with the folders on your local computer. As of version 1.6 we are offering an option to synchronize local folders with Amazon S3. While offering this feature we learned that our customers want more flexibility and visibility when it comes to comparing the folders before the synchronization.
There are a number of options available in the compare tool on the toolbar and each option worth a small description.
Sync Direction options allows you to select if you want to sync from left to right panel, from right to left or bi-directional sync.
Missing Only will highlight only files that do not exist on target in this case only the files missing on the target will get copied.
Delete on Target - will delete file on target if it doesn’t exist on the source anymore.
Include subfolders will compare all the contents of all the subfolders beneath current folder.
Save - will save settings in the existing sync folder or ask to create a new sync folder.
Filter allows you to select what files to you want to see in the list.
If you click Compare it will basically compare the contents again taking into account the filter you set.
Sync Now will create a Sync Folder
Overall, CloudBerry Explorer PRO becomes more and more comprehensive tool for those who work with Amazon S3 storage on a professional level. We hope you will find the enhancement useful and we are looking forward to your feedback.
