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 http://www.2brightsparks.com 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... http://www.codessentials.com/products.html 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.
