G'day Leo or Jon,
Now that my private live has settled down reasonably, I can get back to this Topic and here is my update, i.e. the problem is not fixed and I need this solved please ASAP.
I have tried to synchronize from my Sydney NSW Australia location (Australian Eastern Time Zone UTC+10:00) using 1. my XP Pro SP3 Workstation, or 2. my Windows 8.1 Pro Workstation attempting to sync to my folder on my Linux Server (SSD) account in Chicago Illinois USA and it will detect the files for synchronization except that it will want to re-upload the same 4052 files in 810 folders (varies constantly due to updates) each time it was synchronized the first time.
The settings are still the same as you have previously advised with the time zone adjustments for Chicago Illinois USA set at (GMT -06:00) Central Time (US & Canada) and the [/] Adjust for daylight saving changes (box ticked)
Obviously I have tried some variations like using or not using the daylight adjustment however where once upon a time the synchronization in older versions of Directory Opus worked in the current 12.5.1 it does not.
To currently synchronize my files I am using my iDrive account which loads the 4052 files in 810 folders from my iDrive-Sync folder on my XP Pro SP 3 workstation to my iDrive account and from there to my VPS Windows Server 2012R2 in Nûremberg Germany to the designated folders.
I have then tried to Sync using DO v12.5.1 the 4052 files in 810 folders from the German Server to the Chicago Illinois USA server and the first time I did so it looked good, obviously much faster average 1.28Mb/ps all looking good except the next day I wanted to update the USA server with about 120+ files in 4 folders that had changed and it went back to square 1 ( one) wanting to re-upload the complete 4052 files in 810 folders.
The German Server time was set at (UTC+01:00) Amsterdam, Berlin, Bern, Rome, Stockholm, Vienna / and the USA set at (GMT -06:00) Central Time (US & Canada)
Further attempts with the server time set to (Australian Eastern Time Zone UTC+10:00) still failed
I have attempted minor variations in settings however the sync just refuses to work correctly.
You are most welcome to use either TeamViewer or my own ScreenConnect to log-onto my Workstations in Australia or my Server in Germany to check the DO settings for the sync tasks.
I would greatly appreciate your help in finally solving this file and folder synchronization from any location to any location ASAP please.
