Sync files easily

You can sync up files and folders with this simple program, but novices might not be happy with the lack of a Help file.

Synchronizing files and folders can be an excruciating process for people who need to transfer many files from one place to another within their computers. Synchredible offers an alternative to spending countless minutes copying, clicking, and dragging files into new locations, and it has a great deal of success.

This free download look a little intimidating at first with its very sparse display, but it's easily mastered. Select two files or folders from the file tree drop-down and you are on your way. Synchredible keeps you on pace by telling you where you are in the seven-step process at every screen. After selecting the information, and choosing in which direction it will flow, you can organize a filter, set a scheduler, and more. These steps are intuitive and make sense right away. The most important step is the final one, however, because it gives users the opportunity to sync only unique files, which prevents duplicates from being created.

From there, the files trade information. Users are given a readout of how many files transferred, any warnings, and how long the process took.

Overall, Synchredible is a fantastic product that works smoothly. The only rough patch came when we attempted to browse the Help menu and nothing happened. For users who don't find Synchredible intuitive, this could be a problem. However, we had such a smooth run synchronizing our files that we still highly recommend this freeware.
