How to synchorinze files to a large storage destionation RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to synchronize a file system storage from a local office to a server destination.

    · The destination file storage is huge. About 1 TB 24 million files and folders.

    · The source has only a few MB.

    · The problem I am facing is that the knowlegde file on the destination machine is huge (about 200MB). I amen the syncfile.metadata

    As I understood from the sych algorithm this file is sent to the source when the source want to send files to the destination

    I am seeing that the entire 200MB is sent on the network each time it needs to tell the source it’s knowledge.

    This solution is not good for me since there are about 50 sources trying to sync the server.


     And if I am running the Synctoy 2.1 which is based on the synchronization framework it doesn’t send this knowledge file and is much much faster.


    What should I change in order to make it work normal and fast for a huge destination?


    (BTW – I am not using hash for file comparison)
