2 Way Sync – do the files sync in both directions?
Yes! Files or Folders that are Created, Updated, Copied, Moved to a different location, Deleted, Restored from Recycle Bin in one systems are mirrored exactly in the other system. It goes both ways.
1 Way Sync – can you do a 1 Way Sync?
No, not currently, there is no feature to do only a 1 way sync. However, you can accomplish this by making one system Read Only, so nobody can update or edit files in that system which will result in a 1 Way sync.
How Fast is the Sync? When a file is created or added in either Procore or SharePoint, how long should we expect the change to reflect in both systems?
Ideally, it must take 5 - 10 seconds if the queue isn’t in the backlog provided the file size is less. For a large file size it will take minutes, not seconds.
When a file is changed in either Procore or SharePoint, how long should we expect the change to reflect in both systems?
It will reflect anywhere between 5 - 10 seconds or even faster depending upon the file size.
What is the Maximum file size to Sync?
Maximum file size must be less than or equal to 1024 MiB which is 1.024 GB. If uploaded a file more than 1024 MiB, application will throw an error message “The file size is too big, the max size is 1024 Mib” in the Connection Logs for Windows/Procore/SharePoint along with the path the file is uploaded.
Band Width – some big files take time, just like uploading any big file. So our service is “snappy” but the file may be big and take time to mirror over due to file size. Small files under 1 MB are almost instantaneous.
Large Files which are over 1 GB [1024 Mb] will not sync. We don’t recommend cloud sync tools for large files such as Videos, Drone video, point clouds, large BIM files. We recommend you store those files on local drives or move them manually.
Large Files under 1 GB [1024 Mb] will sync, but it may take time to download them from Procore or SharePoint or vice versa and upload them to the other system due to band width of internet connection or throttling from the cloud system. So they may take minutes to sync, not seconds.
