MS Sync Framework - remote folder share RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, 

    The application I'm working on, uses a third party tool to synchronize files from a remote share folder. I want to remove both the share and the third party tool. I explored FileSyncProvider and all the examples needed the remote folder to be shared and have necessary access privileges. Is it possible to use Sync Framework and synchronize file between a local folder and remote folder, without sharing the remote folder?

    Thanks in advance.

  • the out-of-the-box filesyncprovider can't.

  • if you're trying to do the the sync over http or something, many have tried but i have yet to see a working one...

    anyway you can have a look at this sample to get an idea how to write your own provider: Synchronizing Files to Windows Azure Storage
