IBM Aspera Drive 3.2.0
Drive can now split a file transfer over multiple sessions, which allows faster transfers. This feature is useful when the client-side connection is faster than the server connection–typically internet connections over 2 Gbps connecting to a cloud endpoint. Multi-session options can be configured under Transfer Preferences.
Drive now supports migrating from Cargo Downloader during upgrade to Drive.
In Aspera on Cloud, your workspace can be configured to allow packages to be sent to external users. Now Drive supports the same ability. Note that Drive users can send packages to external users according to the permissions set for the AoC workspace.
IBM Aspera Drive 3.1.8:
Two-Way Sync: Option Not to Propagate Delete Operations
Drive now offers an advanced option to ignore file deletions when two-way sync is configured. The purpose of this new option is to avoid unexpected data loss.
When Drive is configured for two-way synchronization, you can now set the ignore delete option in the Drive configuration file. When ignore delete is set with a value of 1, if a user deletes a file (whether on the local or remote system), Drive’s next sync action does not delete the corresponding file on the other system. Rather, Drive re-transfers the file from the other system. The end result is that the deleted file is recreated on the user’s system.
The default value for ignore delete is 0 (that is, by default Drive does honor deletions in two-way sync).
