  1. Protection against ransomware

    Add 2 options.

    1 - abort sync if delete x% of files in destination folder
    2 - abort sync if overwrite x% of files in destination folder

    this is very useful to protect files on destination folder when the sync run by an scheduled task.

  2. Add a progress bar (UI improvement)

    Hi! Your great software is missing a real color coded progress bar. Now it's hard to see the gray percent number of completion - would be nice to have an option (and this should be an option only) to enable progress bar.
    Thanks!

  4. Ignore file modification date differences up to two seconds

    https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/oldnewthing/20140903-00/?p=83/

    EchoSync keeps syncing the same dirs because all the files are 2 seconds shifted-up.

    So bad .... makes EchoSync useless

    Echosync has already a setting to round timestamp: the FileTimeStampDigitsTolerance setting with a default value to 7.

    This means that milliseconds are ignored when comparing the timestamp of the last modification of the files. But you can not add more tolerance unless you take the risk that modified files are not taken into account for synchronization. Using a file system with a 2-second date resolution like FAT, created in 1977, should not be encouraged. I recommend to use use more modern file system like exFAT or NTFS for your USB keys.

  9. actions before beginning syncing and after finishing syncing

    Please install free configurable actions before beginning syncing and after finishing syncing, e.g. like Cobian Backup 11 from Luis Cobian.
    This is e.g. very important for sending informations about Echosync status to the clients.
    Echosync ist very quick and great - an ideal possibility for managing a standby server.
    Thank you very much, best regards
    Franz
