HELIOS adds dt sync capabilities to File Server solution -- HELIOS "dt sync" provides powerful file synchronization. Folders, volumes and entire disks are synced to make a second copy of the data available.

HELIOS Software today released an enhanced version of its file server command line tools. The new "dt sync" feature enables powerful and reliable sync capabilities to synchronize entire volumes or disks with a single command.

The HELIOS "dt sync" capability is the perfect solution for backup and disaster recovery where, in case of errors or just to access yesterday's files, customers use a second disk or remote storage mounted via NFS to have a second version of their data available.

"Our new "dt sync" provides fast and highly reliable data synchronization to a backup server or storage system", stated Helmut Tschemernjak, CEO of HELIOS Software GmbH. "The file sync is optimized to run while volumes are online, and only modified files are synchronized, making it very fast for subsequent syncs."

The "dt" synced copy of the data can be published as a regular volume accessible across the Enterprise and departments enabling Mac, Windows, and remote Web clients to easily mount and use the synced data anytime.

The "dt" utilities are part of the HELIOS File Server products EtherShare UB2, PCShare UB2, and WebShare UB2. UNIX files, Mac resources, and Windows file streams are fully supported. Using the new HELIOS "dt sync" utility for any kind of file synchronization offers the critical advantage of maintaining any kind of meta data, including updating the desktop database and Spotlight index.

Features of the new "dt sync" utility include:

- Syncing an entire disk to another disk with optional statistics logging

- Sync folder-to-folder with full desktop database and Spotlight index maintenance

- Support for Mac resource and Windows file streams

- Sync to or from NFS mounted storage

- A scan-only feature to report file changes

The enhanced "dt" utilities are provided free of charge to customers with a valid HELIOS software maintenance agreement. The update can be downloaded from the HELIOS web site or installed directly via the HELIOS Update Installer.

Features and benefits of the HELIOS file server product range, including HELIOS EtherShare UB2, PCShare UB2, and WebShare UB2, and the add-on products ImageServer UB2, PDF Handshake UB2, and PrintPreview UB2, can be found on the HELIOS web site http://www.helios.de. The "dt" utilities are described in detail in the HELIOS Base manual (http://www.helios.de/support/manuals/baseUB2-e/) on the HELIOS web site.
