New Google Drive Sync version 5 Released

We are happy to announce the release of version 5 of Syncdocs today:

What’s new:
– Enhanced drag and drop support. You can now drop files onto Syncdocs from almost any app to sync them to Google Drive.
– Right click syncs folders from anywhere on your PC without making a copy. This saves space.
– Local file times mirrored on Google Drive
– Many more command-line options, giving advanced users more control.
– Support for fully automated Google Drive installation, all options pre-configurable
– Fix for Google Server moving files and ex-shared folders to root
– Version pruning enabled on all files by default, so old versions of no longer take up Google Drive space.

Enhanced Documentation

The Syncdocs FAQ has been updated with many new Google Drive questions answered.

The how-to guides have new articles.

How to Update

The upgrade is free and will happen automatically. The old Syncdocs version should ask if you want to update automatically in the next few days.

To update now, right click on the Syncdocs taskbar icon, go to Preferences -> Advanced -> “Check for Updates”

New portable version

The portable (USB memory stick) version of Syncdocs has also been updated.

 

Syncdocs 2

We’re happy to announce a major new version of Syncdocs, Syncdocs 2.

The main new feature is closer integration with Google Docs. Google recently released a new interface to Google Docs specifically designed to make syncing to Google Docs faster and more reliable.

We’ve rewritten the core sync engine of Syncdocs to take advantage of this new Google feature. Syncs that used to take up to 15 minutes can now finish in 15 seconds.

Improvements and new features

- Changes detected and synced faster and more reliably, especially for those with tens of thousands of files.
- New format Google presentations to Powerpoint sync support
- Ability not to sync root files (files in no collection) in selective sync
- Lower overall memory use
- New scheduler to backup Google Docs once a day
- All advanced setup options available during installation
- Ability to ignore filetypes and folders
- Better Dropbox to Google Docs sync

Bugfixes:

- Syncdocs sometimes did not reconnect after computer hibernated
- Some files uploaded to root were not visible in “Home”
- Once a day and manual sync now detect local changes made before first sync
- Better handling of Google server 403 and SSL errors
- Smoother mirroring of slow Google server recursive deletions
- Updates to content of files in root folder sometimes not occurring
- Deletions and renames sometimes resulting in duplicate files
- Bypass Google errors on Cyrillic and East European character sets
- Smoother handling of Google 503 errors during deletions
A big thank you to everyone who reported bugs!
