    "Fast & Comprehensive"

    April 5, 2006  |   By arcturus1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Interarchy 8 is lightning-quick for mirroring my company (architecture) website, comparing 300+ local and remote files in 7 seconds; Transmit 3.5.1 requires 12 seconds; Fetch 5.0.5 requires 50-65 seconds. Interarchy's mirroring speed, plus its ability to save a mirror path as a bookmark has become the default way for me to upload anything, from one file to the whole site. This elegant and dependable feature is great for me, because I'm typically focussed more on web site changes than ftp mechanics.

    I'm one of those people for whom Interarchy is probably overkill, except for its historical reliability. I have nevertheless read the documentation at length and put the program though its paces, and everything has worked reliably so far, except the check local web site links feature, which lists the files instead of checking the links, and the "Show View Functions" command, which can be greyed out occasionally when it shouldn't be. I imagine these teething issues will be resolved in v.8.01.

    One Interarchy behavior that I don't understand is downloading a file as part of the "View" command. Viewing a number of remote files results in as many files showing up on the Desktop, which then have to be moved to the Trash. Fetch and Transmit don't do this, and I can't figure this out; perhaps it's part of a professional workflow or is a reliability issue. Since I do all viewing and editing on local files, I don't need to use it.

    There are twenty function windows in Interarchy; I can clutter the screen quickly If I'm in an exploratory mood. I see this as an unavoidable function of the extensive feature set, however, and my typical tasks require three windows (max) at a time.
