How can we improve Echosync?

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.
