File Mirroring over FTP? (Real time)

Posted on 2009-02-11

Hi there,

OS: Windows Server.
Are there any real-time file mirroring programs that mirror files over FTP? (or SFTP, FTP-SSL, etc)

Also, they should be reasonable in cost, below $299 per license.

I'd like one that has a good reputation and can offer encrypted FTP (FTP-SSL or SFTP)

    SyncBack Pro at supports FTP and SFTP. It's a great program, not expensive and a dream to use.

    There is also a SyncBack/SE which includes support for FTPS servers, but not SFTP servers. However, you can access SFTP using SyncBack/SE using 3rd party products such as WebDrive (commercial), and this article explains how to use Tunnelier. There is also a KB article on using WebDrive with SyncBackSE:

    Hi there,

    SyncBack is great but not real time, which is what I specified. Looking at:
    Super Flexible File Synchronizer

    That is real time and im currently evaluating it.

    Very hard to maintain complete system integrity with totally realtime synchronization. There's also Yadis Backup here... just turn off the file versioning.

    Personally, I'd be scheduling syncback

    Super Flexible File Synchronizer has been really good so far. Also took a look at BestSync. I'll accept the response anyhow. 2BrightSparks SynchBack is extremely robust and reliable.
