1.0 Overview
SyncEXPnet, is a shareware program that processes proprietary and innovative algorithms to synchronize digital data between desktop computers, laptops, USB flash thumb drives and any Microsoft Windows based network storage devices, automatically including hidden files and folders. SyncEXPERT's software combines bulletproof reliability with an extremely easyto-use interface. The software offers a smart data comparison approach in combination with a synchronizing speed that is second to none. Your corporation can save anywhere from minutes to hours of computation resources, depending on the number of files that need processing, over our competitors programs. Our software is small in size but is robustly built to process high loading tasks. SyncEXPnet is a client – server tool that synchronizes files, folders and databases on Windows LANs (intranet) or WANs (extranet) platforms using TCP/IP networks protocol, at your office and home. A multitude of databases are supported with an ODBC connection, such as, Oracle, DB2, Microsoft SQL server, Sybase, Pervasive SQL, MySQL, PostgreSQL, and also desktop database products, such as, FileMaker and Microsoft Access. If you are a web hosting business, SyncEXPnet is an offsite backup tool for you to mirror a site quickly and easily. Backups can be scheduled anytime from hourly to daily. The software runs fast and uses very little system resources as it compares file and sub-folders on a network and copies, deletes, and/or ignores items based on your instructions making it the best companion for sharing data, making backups, and mirroring files. SyncEXPnet comes with FileSync and DataSync functionalities. FileSync works with the files and folders on the network while DataSync manages and compares the system records and tables inside the database. SyncEXPnet's client program is a green software, or a "widget”, which is free from dll and can be run from the USB thumb disk. When the USB disk is removed from the workstation the synchronizer detaches from the computer. No installation to the client computer is ever required and the software works even if software installs are prohibited. The smart data comparison feature allows a directory snapshot to be stored to save scanning time of repetitive tasks, therefore, the synchronizing speed is substantially faster than many peer applications that are available.

4.0 Installation Instructions
SyncEXPnet will be sent as a .zip file that will need to be opened using a utility similar to WinZip (http://www.winzip.com). You can extract and save the files wherever you wish. In order to run the programs you simply click on the appropriate executable (.exe) file and the program will launch. The software will contain the following files: SEServer.exe: main server program SEClient.exe: main client program IniAdmin.exe: manage database interface definition wDataAcc.dll: data access interface code HookNet.dll: dll file NTFSys.dll: dll file DataSync.txt: application manual for the Datasync function Readme_SyncEXPnet.txt: this file

5.0 Uninstallation Instructions
The SyncEXPnet program does not install to the local machine but instead places a folder with the executables (.exe) inside. In order to uninstall SyncEXPnet, you simply need to delete the syncexpnet folder that was extracted from the .zip file in the installation instructions. Once the folder has been deleted from the workstation or network the program is completely uninstalled.

6.0 Important Software Information
Trojan/Virus Alert The File NTFSys.dll is compressed by PECompact in order to minimize the size of the file. Virus scanners (such as, Avast as reported) may view the act a potential hack, while other scanners (such as, Norton and Kaspersky) sees this a clean file.

8.0 Client Application
8.0.1 File Synchronization Tasks
The File Synchronization capabilities in this software allow for two or more locations to store the same up to date files. If the data in these files are changed the file synchronization will replicate the changes when a backup is performed. The following section shows you how to add, modify, and/or delete a file synchronization task.

8.0.1.3 Delete a File Synchronization Task
Important: You must be disconnected from the host to delete a task. Warning: You will not be prompted to verify that you want to delete the task. Once the delete button is clicked that task is permanently removed from the system. 1. Open SyncEXPnet (Client). 2. Highlight the task and click the 3. Click the button. button to delete the task.

8.0.2 Dataset Synchronization Tasks
The DataSync feature backs up and mirrors multiple sizable databases across the Internet or corporate networks. Datasets are the targeted data that you would like to be synchronized, therefore, in a database the table is called a dataset. Records are the data entries that form a dataset. A database can have multiple tables. A table with fewer than a thousand records is considered "small" in SyncEXPnet. Fields are the different attributes of data. Key Fields are specific fields whose values are unique within a table. A Key Field value should be characters or convertible strings. Once a record is written its value should not be changed. The Key Field does NOT support Unicode. Table's Key Field can be used for our synchronization purpose. In order to speed up the synchronization speed the Key Field should be indexed. SyncEXPnet requires the Key Field to identify a record. Modified Time is a field in a table that tracks when a record was last changed. SyncEXPnet uses this field to decide if a record needs to be processed, therefore if you have records that are not supposed to be updated at any time it will assist in speeding up the data scans. If this field is not found in a table all the data within a record will be scanned thoroughly and compared bit by bit which can become a time consuming if you have thousands of records. SyncEXPnet supports this field in both, Date and Time and Date only formats. An index for that field is desirable for an efficient sync task.
SyncEXPnet User Guide v.0905 by SyncEXPERT - 21 -

SyncEXPnet has an option for you to control how many days old the records are that you want to compare and synchronize. For example, if you define it as 300 days, records older than 301 days will be excluded from the results allowing for a more proficient processing of relevant data. A Deletion Tag is one of the fields in a table that is typically a binary field with a value of true or false. When a record is decided to be deleted, SyncEXPnet will tag the field as true instead of physically removing the record. This method is selected as permanently deleting a record can create chaos when a host database is being synchronized to multiple mirror sites which are changing independently. The Deletion Tag helps a synchronization task to be done more accurately and reliably although one needs to manually delete true-tagged records from time to time, or to add a module in your database application to purge them automatically.

8.0.2.0 Operational Structure
SyncEXPnet > Data Access Interface (wDataAcc.dll) > ODBC > Database

8.0.2.1 Add ODBC Data Source
You can easily add your database by using Windows built-in ODBC management tool, odbcad32.exe. You should classify your database as a "user database" or "system database". A User Database allows only the current logged in user to access the information. A System Database allows all users with the proper administrative rights access to the database information. (Note: The example below uses a Microsoft Access database.) 1. Select Start > Run.
