Black Ice Software's latest release of the BiBatchConverter Version 5.60 includes significant new improvements to monitoring and converting documents from a cloud directory such as OneDrive, Google Drive, or Dropbox.

Storing documents on cloud services has become much more popular as they allow users to access their files from anywhere. The BiBatchConverter offers a simple solution to monitor and convert documents from a cloud directory on OneDrive, Google Drive, or Dropbox. The processed documents can be moved to another directory while even maintaining the folder structure in the new directory. The BiBatchConverter can monitor cloud directories and automatically convert any new documents without any user interaction.

The most common use case scenarios would be organizations that are sharing directions/folders in the cloud and require the shared documents to be converted to either PDF or Tiff files. Another common use case would be for organizations that only allow users to only store files on cloud services and prevent local storage of files for security purposes.

In addition to the improved handling of cloud directories, there have also been many new improvements, optimizations, and error handling added to the BiBatchConverter.

  • faster start-up of conversion: The batch conversion now starts in less than 10 seconds whereas previously some instances took 40-60 seconds to start.
  • Starting and Stopping window services are now optimized for easy usability. This was accomplished by removing some cumbersome steps.
  • Monitoring multiple folders with different conversion configurations (profiles) is now faster.
  • Better managed parallel conversion and Updated Printer Drivers for improved performance and accuracy.

The complete list of improvements in the latest BiBatchConverter includes the following:
