Sync date range

You can exclude or include files by combining exact and dynamic start and end date filters. It is possible to perform synchronization based on a simple or complex date range—sync recently modified, sync files that are created in the last 3 months only, or files changed between 2 dates, sync all modifications from a specific date forward, and so on.

Sync files only within a certain date and time range
