Synchronization Task Example

Now let's see how you can create, adjust and execute a synchronization task.
In this example, we will synchronize the My Documents folder with a remote FTP folder.

To create a synchronization task, choose it in Step one of the New Task Wizard by checking the corresponding radio button, and click Next to continue.

In step 2, we must select the first folder to synchronize with.

As you can see in the picture, we browsed for the My Documents folder and selected it as the first folder to synchronize with.

In Step 3, we must select the second folder, with which the first folder will be synchronized. We have already agreed to select a remote FTP folder, so the FTP radio button was checked and the FTP server settings entered.

Now we need to connect to the remote FTP server and specify the second folder.

We created a new folder with the help of the New Folder button and named it MyDocSYNC. Then we selected it as the second folder by clicking the Select button.

The second folder directory has been added to the Location field.

In Step 4 of the New Task Wizard, we decided to perform mirroring of the selected folders to keep their contents identical. Mirroring suggests that changes in either folder will be immediately replicated in the other folder.

In addition, we specified that Office Backup must copy newer files in order to synchronize the most recent changes in either folder.

In Step 5, we enabled scheduler and specified the exact time of the synchronization operation. Then, we requested the program to repeat synchronization every day and specified that the program should run the synchronization task as soon as it can to compensate for missed scheduled operations and on logon.

In the last step of New Task Wizard, we typed in the name of the new synchronization task and checked the box Execute this task immediately.

By clicking Finish, we launched the synchronization task.
