23 May 2019
SureSync v8.1.7 released
Communications Agent

In rare circumstances, a spinlock deadlock could occur in the Communications Agent. This could lead to high CPU usage on the system. This has been fixed in 8.1.7.

File Synchronisation

When a subscription to the status service was removed, it was possible for an "Error Number: 1024 System.Threading.SynchronizationLockException: The lock is being disposed while still being used. It either is being held by a thread and/or has active waiters waiting to acquire the lock” error. This would be followed by a "Error Number: 1042 System.InvalidOperationException: Collection was modified; enumeration operation may not execute.” These errors would appear in the Event Viewer and either the Communications Agent and/or Scheduler service could be stopped. This has been fixed in 8.1.7.

Status Web

A performance optimisation was made to Status Web related to environments with large lists of Jobs. This has been fixed in 8.1.7.

SQL Protection

A System.Data.SqlClient.SqlError: Invalid value specified for EXPIREDATE parameter error could occur when doing a SQL restore with SQL Protection when the date format on the machine is set to British. This has been fixed in 8.1.7.

User Interface

In the Computer wizard, if you clicked back and attempted to modify the name you entered it would not be accepted. This has been fixed in 8.1.7.

SureSync v8.0.25 released

8 Jun 2018
SureSync v8.0.25 released


When restoring a file with ArchiveSync if there was a change in file attributes, such as the Read-Only attribute, the restore of the file would fail indicating that the source did not match the expected values. This has been fixed in 8.0.25.

Communications Agent

The timeout in the Communications Agent has been increased from 5 minutes to 10 minutes to allow for very slow file system responses to requests. This has been fixed in 8.0.25.

In certain timing circumstances, a communications fault on the Communications Agent I/O service could go undetected until another I/O operation was attempted. This has been fixed in 8.0.25.

In rare timing circumstances in environments with frequent path losses and recoveries, it was possible for the Communications Agent to become 100% CPU bound and for files to then not be processed. This has been fixed in 8.0.25.

File Synchronisation

The e-mail alert send routines have been updated to support newer security protocols for sending e-mail via Internet mail servers such as Gmail where TLS/SSL is used. This has been fixed in 8.0.25.

When there was an error on a destination, it was possible for the source to also be flagged as being in error. This would result in an incorrect over reporting condition where the source was reported in the log along with the destination. This has been fixed in 8.0.25.

If a Job was configured to copy create dates, messages about being unable to determine the source for changed security values messages could occur in the log even though security copying was not enabled. This has been fixed in 8.0.25.

SureSync v8.0.24 released

  • In rare instances, an I/O cancel request could make an agent become unresponsive. This has been fixed in 8.0.24.
