Limitations for File System Events on Windows
Posted by Sven Koester, Last modified by Sven Koester on 22 August 2008 15:36
Starting with PresSTORE version 3, on Windows you can speed up Synchronize jobs by configuring file system events in the Synchronize Plan's additional options.
PresSTORE then does not need to scan the source and target directories with each execution of the Synchronize job, but collects file system events from the source path to determine which files need to be synchronized over to the destination. This means that the file system "notifies" PresSTORE about all changes on the source directory and PresSTORE synchronizes exactly these files.

When setting up the synchronization, please do not specify a junction point or a "subst" drive in the source path, but specify the true directory path as the sync source path. Otherwise, PresSTORE will not recognize the file system events as applicable for the synchronize source directory. Junction points (the Windows equivalent of unix links) are handled as copies of the directory and thus not handled correctly by the file system event mechanism.
