Get in sync

Move files among folders, external drives, cameras, and more with this intuitive program.

Syncing can be a useful feature in a variety of contexts. People sync files between computers and USB drives for easy portability, between computers and external hard drives to create backups, and between cameras and computers so that images can be edited and shared. PureSync is a full-featured program that helps users sync data among a variety of sources and destinations. It's one of the most useful and well-designed programs we've seen in a while.

PureSync's interface is attractive and intuitive, with a wizard dialog that helps users set up and save synchronizations. The four different options under the New Jobs heading allow users to configure synchronizations between folders or drives, create new backups or photo syncs, and transfer files between computers. The wizard walks users through each step of the process, making it easy to set up syncing even if you've never done it before. The program then displays each created job in a list so that users can find and execute particular synchronizations with ease. Users can view a comparison between the source and destination folders before running the synchronization, ensuring that there are no surprises after the sync is complete. The program comes with a detailed, well-written Help file that does a good job of explaining its features. Overall, we think PureSync is a great choice for anybody who regularly needs to move files from one place to another.

PureSync installs a desktop icon without asking but uninstalls cleanly. We recommend this program to all users.
