FTPSync is a one way sync tool, that is, files are always transferred from source to destination. Due to its "blind sync" algorithm, it can not be used in two way sync scenarios, by defining two transfers, where one syncs from source to destination and the other vice versa.
Today, I released FTPSync 2.9.4.
This update resolves an issue where FTPSync would crash immediately when running on some non-english versions of Windows, or english version of Windows with some regional settings changed.
For more information on changes in this and previous releases, ple... [More]
Starting with FTPSync 2.8f, FTPSync requires Microsoft .NET Framework. This is not an issue with users running Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008, as those systems come with .NET preinstalled. Most Windows XP or Windows Server 2003 systems also have .NET installed, as many newer appli... [More]
To make it easier to provide feedback on FTPSync or request a new feature, I've set up FTPSync UserVoice site. It is accessible from FTPSync's page via feedback tab on the left or via a link on a support page. I've also populated it with some often requested features, for a start. I hope... [More]
One of the issues with FTPSync is that its sync algorithm is file based, not directory based. As a result, empty directories are not transferred. This seems to be increasingly a problem lately, as some frameworks, blog engines, etc. rely on their directory structure, even if directories are empty.... [More]
There are some issues in FTPSync regarding RetryDelay/RetryCount parameters. A combination of a bug in counting routine along with a bit unclear algorithm on how counting is done may result in vary strange behavior, where number of times to repeat an operation can be way different than what is set...

A bug was introduced in FTPSync 2.8c, which may cause FTPSync to transfer no files at all, when IncludeRoot=No is set.
This issue has been resolved in FTPSync 2.8d.
There is a bug in FTPSync 2.8c, which in some cases may cause FTPSync to ignore AllowModeZ=No and continue to use MODE Z (compressed transfers) for some FTP server operations. If your FTP server is having issues with MODE Z, this may result in frequent timeouts, dropped transfers or complete inabi... [More]
FTPSync by itself does not impose limits on file size to be transferred. However, due to firewalls prematurely timing out FTP sessions, it's possible that your specific setup may impose a file size limit, which may be as low as several MB and as high as several GB. Usual symptoms are:
When you run FTPSync for the first time, it will transfer all the files from source to destination. The reason for this is the way FTPSync determines files that should be transferred, which is done by comparing the snapshot of source directory from previous transfer with current state of files in so...
