SureSync 6 System Requirements

SureSync’s basic operating system requirements are:
  • Supported Operating Systems: Windows Server 2012*; Windows Server 2008 R2; Windows Server 2008; Windows Server 2003 R2; Windows Server 2003; Windows 8*; Windows 7; Windows Vista; Windows XP
  • Processor: 400Mhz Pentium Processor or equivalent (Minimum); 1 Ghz Pentium Processor or equivalent (Recommended)
  • RAM (total for system): 256MB (Minimum); 1GB (Recommended)
  • Hard Disk: 30MB for application files; 20MB+ for database
  • Display: 800×600, 256 colors (Minimum); 1024×768 high color, 32-bit (Recommended)

Please Note: The File Locking Add-on in the SureSync Collaboration Bundle is not supported on Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8.

SureSync is a 32-bit application but will run without issue on 64-bit versions of Windows. 64-bit editions of Windows include full featured emulation for running 32-bit code which allows SureSync to run on these operating systems without issue. The SPIAgent File Locking Add-on is 64-bit compatible.

SureSync can synchronize data to operating systems such as Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, and non-Windows machines such as Macintosh and Linux machines via UNC path but the software itself must be installed on one of the supported operating systems listed above.

SureSync requires a database which is used to store configuration information. The following formats are supported:

  • Microsoft Access (default)
  • MSDE 2000 / SQL Express 2005 / SQL Express 2005 R2/ SQL Express 2008 / SQL Express 2008 R2 / SQL Express 2012
  • SQL Server 2000 / SQL Server 2005 / SQL Server 2005 R2 / SQL Server 2008 / SQL Server 2008 R2 / SQL Server 2012

A SQL database is strongly recommended for setups using multi-directional rule types, environments with more than 50 Relations defined, or environments where hundreds of thousands of files will be processed to achieve optimal performance.

SureSync requires a number of Microsoft components to be installed on the system. The SureSync installer will inspect your system for these components and offer to upgrade or install them as needed.

  • Microsoft MDAC 2.8 Refresh with Service Pack 1
