iphigenie,

I had the same question. I alter the tags of lots of oggs and would like to update only those that have changed; and if the delta copy moved just the tags, so much better. Unfortunately, Tobias said it's beyond SFSS's capabilities. A bit of a bummer.

Is there another backup solution that handles alternate NTFS data streams gracefully ?

After not doing any real backups for almost a year ( :-[ ) I today installed version 3 of Super Flexible File Synchronizer again (which I registered back then) and started to backup some stuff.

Feeling more secure already. 8)

My question: what has changed in the new version 4? Does anyone know? The German site has a version history which ends at a 3.x (huh?) and the English site doesn't seem to have a version history at all. http://www.superflex...ble.com/amazons3.htm hints that 4.x is needed for Amazon S3 Web Storage support, but I didn't find more than that.

Also it would be interesting to know the cost for updating from 3.x to 4.x

http://www.superflexible.com/history.htm for version history

cant say about Amazon S3 (I use it but using Jungle Disk to back up my SFFS backups - not the most efficient but one advantage is it's easier for someone non-technical like me to check if it working properly)

I got a free upgrade from V3 to V4.   Many things changed from V3 to V4, cannot mention all of them.  The most visible is th e GUI. I admit I preferred the V3 one, but one get used to V4.

The version 4 update is a free for purchases after Oct 1st, 2007, but you will most likely need a new registration code.
Cool, that means I will get a free upgrade also. Since MerleOne does not like version 4 too much, I wonder what the rest of you (who both used v3 and v4) thinks?

I would like to update mostly because of this new feature in v4 that I requested back then:

Files to be deleted are now deleted before new files are copied to avoid running out of space on the target disk.

I would just like to point out that I do like v4 for the extra features, it's just that I miss some aspects of the V3 GUI.

Also, I feel something is missing from both versions : when I preview the files to be synced, I sometimes note that a given file, for instance 'my_very_big_file.mpg', should be excluded from all syncs from now on.  All I can do from the preview windows is manually enter a new exclusion rule, I would much prefer to have a goodsync-like feature where I just right click on this item and chose "exclude my_very_big_file.mpg".  When the path/file name is complicated, entering it manually is a big cause of error.

Apart from that it really stands out !

Ah, ok. Which are the "aspects of the V3 GUI" that you miss?

And did you write them, suggesting that those - and the file exclusion feature you mentioned - could be added?

I sent this suggestion once to the developer back in May 2007.  Regarding V3 GUI, I think you had all parameters in view when launching a sync.  Now you to have to go into edit mode. Also I liked the color theme better.

I agree that it is a bit of a pain - small pain, not a big pain! - to have to open the Edit window to see what your parameters are for any given job. I think that v.3 had a "Summary" view that showed a lot of the main parameters. I could be confusing this with a different sync program though. (My memory is going......... :huh: :o  ).

Also, a few updates ago the new (or revised?) Safety feature defaulting to NOT performing the sync if a certain percentage of deletions was to occur drove me nuts until I discovered that setting. I think Tobias changed that a few updates later, but I had already changed all of mine manually.

Generally a very good program IMO.

Yes, I second that, even if I'm still on version 3.  8)

I'm a bit late to the party with this, but I like V4 just fine.
Mind you, I invite SFFS only to waltz, not to tango.

I agree that 'click-on-me-to exclude-me' would be nice.
