Mountain Duck 4.12 introduces new settings to allow cache management — a top requested feature.
In Smart Synchronization connect mode all files you work with (e.g. open, save, upload or explicitly choose to keep offline) are saved in the local cache to shorten access times and to make them editable when offline. Depending on the size of your files, this might eat up your local disk space. This can be problematic in particular for computers with a small SSD disk. The new cache management feature gives you the ability to define a retention time for files and to limit the size of the cache in general. Both settings can be enabled either separately or in combination.
The first option defines the retention time in days after which a file is purged from the cache when it was not accessed during this period. The size option is a soft limit that does apply on a bookmark basis and excludes files marked to be kept offline by the user. In any case, older files are always purged first.
Cyberduck 8.4 and Mountain Duck 4.12 revamp support to view and retrieve previous versions. Instead of the context menu, previous versions are now listed into the Versions tab of the Info window.
Using the buttons in the lower-left corner, you can perform different actions on the selected version:
- Revert to this version
- Delete the version permanently
- View the version using QuickLook on macOS or open this version in the default editor application on Windows.
The versioning feature is now available for Amazon S3, Backblaze B2, Dropbox, Google Drive, Google Cloud Storage, Microsoft OneDrive, and Microsoft Sharepoint connections. You can find full interoperability information in the documentation available.
Mountain Duck 4.12 introduces a new Notifications tab in Preferences that allows customizing the notifications to be displayed. In particular it allows fine tuning which notifications to receive when file changes are detected on the server and background synchronization activity.
