Azure – The new Azure File Sync update is available

The latest update for Azure File Sync (6.0.0.0) – the file synchronization tool from your on-premises shares to Azure File – is available here https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=858257).

This new version (also available as an update in Windows Update/WSUS) includes few new capabilities like:

  • auto update agent. With this version, the Azure File Sync agent is now able to automatically update itself. The default settings will attempt to update the agent once a week within a 21 days period prior to expiration date of the agent. You can also set the option to automatically update the agent as soon as a new version is available.
  • synchronization of ACL’s between you on-premises and Azure
  • simultaneous download and upload process. This mean there is no more wait for download/upload to be completed before the agent is able to upload/download

Enjoy
