What are the file handling methods during high-speed synchronous data transfer
In today's digital age, data synchronization and transfer are a common need in all fields. Whether it is data synchronization within an enterprise or storing and sharing data in the cloud, efficient file processing is required to achieve high-speed Synchronization transfer. And to meet the growing demand for data processing, people continue to explore and optimize various file processing strategies.
In the past, when faced with large file transfers, slow and inefficient transfer speeds were often encountered. To address these challenges, researchers and engineers have proposed a variety of file processing methods aimed at improving the speed and efficiency of file transfer.
Raysync File Processing Relying on High-Speed Transfer Engine
Relying on the technical advantages of its high-speed transfer engine, Raysync can effectively solve the problems of delay and data loss caused by traditional TCP transfer, thus improving the efficiency and stability of data transfer. At the same time, Raysync’s data synchronization has a variety of file processing methods. It enables enterprises to apply it to various scenarios and meet their different data processing needs.
Preserve file modification time
Raysync default file verification mechanism: Keeps the modification time of the file transferred to the target the same as the modification time of the source file, ensuring the integrity of the file. Enabled by default.
Only transfer files and folders under the source directory (mandatory on when two-way synchronization)
Scenario: Maintain the same directory hierarchy between the source and target. It is suitable for the case that there is already some file data in the target, or you don't want to create a new folder path.
Automatically delete the target file when the source deleted
After the synchronization is completed, if the source file is deleted, the same file will be automatically deleted at the target. If this option is activated for two-way synchronization, if the file at either end is deleted, the file at the other end will be deleted as well.
Scenario: Keeps the completion of files on the destination and source side the same, and at the same time will delete files/folders on the destination side that are redundant compared to the source side.
Example: Synchronize all the files in directory A to the files in directory B, and delete all the redundant files in directory B, so that the files in both directory A and directory B are guaranteed to be consistent.
Automatically delete the source file every file done (not optional for two-way synchronization)
1) File Migration: Automatically deletes source files that have already been migrated. Avoid manual deletion.
2) The source directory will only add new files with different names. It can realize automatic deletion of the files that have been successfully transferred from the source after each synchronized transfer is completed without additional operation, which can save storage space at the source and reduce the time and traffic of traversing the files at the source during the second transfer.
There are two ways of deletion:
1) Delete all files and folders inside the source (top level is not deleted)
2) Delete only the source files and keep the completion structure of the directory.
Processing methods when the target file already exists
1) Overwrite (default)
2) Overwrite if the source newer
Scenario: update only when the source file is newer than the target file. Ensure that the target files are up-to-date and save transfer traffic by reducing unwanted synchronization. Better suited for two-way synchronization.
3) Append to the target file (Not applicable to object storage)
Scenario: suitable for the file new data will only be written to the back of the case, and can be treated as a kind of incremental synchronization (not applicable to most types of files). If the source has made changes to the previous content, this mode will not synchronize the data that has already been transferred.
For example, the log file generated by the program, under normal circumstances, the log will only write to the back, there is no modification of the previous log content.
Test: txt text is more appropriate. Word documents will damage the file.
4) Rename (synchronized once can be set)
To sum up, Raysync's multiple file processing with multiple text file synchronization provides businesses with the convenience of data processing. If you are looking for a powerful, fast and stable file synchronization tool with good security, Raysync is undoubtedly a choice worth considering.
