There is option to “Create New Folder Pair” for which you want to do synchronization. When you click on this option, following screen will be displayed:
Note: Before proceeding to create folder pairs always keep a separate master folder of product images at head office because the paired folder may get corrupted or over-written by the shop image folder accidently.
You need to select folders pair to synchronize and proceeds to second step. Left folder should be of head office server where product images are placed and Right folder should be selected from shop system. There can be multiple folder pairs at a time. You can have folder pairs like:
Server Images Folder -> Shop1 Images Folder
Server Images Folder -> Shop2Images Folder
Server Images Folder -> Shop3 Images Folder
These folder pair bindings are saved and available for future use.
In second step, you will select “Echo” check box from available three boxes and proceeds to third step by clicking ‘Next’ button. In third step, user will be asked to give a name to that pair. Screens on second and third steps are displayed in following screenshots.

After entering name of folder pair, system will display folder pair information and option to run synchronization process. You will have to click ‘Run’ button from screen to complete synchronization process.
On the left panel you can see list of all folder pairs which you have created. You can select any one of the folder pairs OR “All Folder Pairs”.
When you click on ‘Run’ button, system will show synchronization process. In following screenshot, system displays progress bar to indicate current state of synchronization process.
After synchronization process, you should click ‘Close’ button to close that screen and view related information of last synchronization process as is shown in following screenshot.
