Syncplify.me MicroServer! first BETA available

A new tiny-tiny product is about to join its “older brother” Syncplify.me Server!… we called it Syncplify.me MicroServer!

In a nutshell, MicroServer! is a portable SFTP server that doesn’t need any installation, just download and double-click to run. It’s free for any use, including business and commercial, but it’s very limited.

Unlike Syncplify.me Server!, in fact, this MicroServer!:

  • only supports SFTP (no shell, no tunnels, no FTP/S)
  • only supports basic SFTP commands, no remote copy or other “fancy stuff”
  • cannot run as a system service
  • supports only 1 user profile, 1 root folder, and connections from 1 client at a time
  • doesn’t have PKI authentication, nor granular configuration
  • doesn’t have web interface, nor CLI, nor REST API

It’s basically a super-simplistic (yet highly secure) SFTP server that fits in less than 3 MB (yes, you’ve read it correctly, less than 3 MegaBytes) and can be carried around on a USB stick, and run directly from there, without even needing to be executed “as Administrator”. Ideal for brief, sudden file transfers, without giving up on security.

Very important: to fix this bug we had to change the way we encrypt files at-rest via DiskAES256 VFS; so if you use this particular type of VFS, please, make sure you download all your files to a non-encrypted location before you update to 4.0.13, after the update please delete all files from the location that was protected by the DiskAES256 VFS and re-upload them all. We sincerely apologize for the hassle.
