    "I want one-way synchronization."

    August 08, 2013   |   By jholmes_jr

    Version: File Synchronization 1.6.1

    Pros

    I was able to "synchronize" folders with the same name on two different drives, one the Mac internal hard drive and the other a USB-connected backup drive. Unfortunately, as far as I can tell, it can only synchronize both ways. In other words, if one drive has file A and the other drive has file B, when it's over both folders have Files A and B. What I wanted was a program that puts A on the other drive and deletes B from it.

    Cons

    This thing's idea of synchronization is to take everything from either drive and put it on the other. I wanted a one-way sync where the target was made to look like the source, whether that means adding missing files, updating files from the source to the target, or deleting files on the target that no longer exist on the source. If it does this, I couldn't figure out how.

    Summary

    Astonishing that such a powerful program doesn't provide one-way synchronization.

    "Great way to synch 2 computers or backup folders!"

    July 21, 2011   |   By coit540

    Version: File Synchronization 1.6.1

    Pros

    This is an indispensable tool to backup files from 1 computer to another. It has recently been improved & is much faster.

    Cons

    Could be a little more user friendly.

    Summary

    A great program that does exactly what it says it does.

    "Great - Fast - Wonderful"

    June 29, 2011   |   By scwerden

    Version: File Synchronization 1.6

    Pros

    Same reliable screen BUT very fast!
    MODE selections of Manual, Auto etc. for sync frequency very useful

    Cons

    1) In lower left corner is "Number of pairs" not sure what the very large number is telling me - 47244640371
    2) Date of last sync seems different than old version - If a pair was synced with no changes date goes away - how about the current date

    Summary

    Thanks for a great update

    "I swear by it! It simply works."

    Version: File Synchronization 1.4.6

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I have purchased a copy of this for every mac in my company. It makes the process of file synchronisation as easy as it can be and some of my Mac users are not too technical, but they all find this software easy to use and it keeps their files backed up, which any IT Manager will tell you is the biggest challenge they face. The price is very reasonable and the support form the developer is exemplary.

    "Good File Synch Tool"

    February 05, 2010   |   By ejmathews

    Version: File Synchronization 1.4.4

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I am a big fan of File synchronization tools to keep multiple folder identical.File Synchronization allows you to set up folder pairs and with a click of a button keep them synched. There are many tools for handling conflicts, missing files, etc. You can also set these pairs up for automated and scheduled synchronization. There is a handy preview function to make sure that the planned folder updates are what you expect. A very nicely thought out utility. The developer is responsive and easy to deal with.

    "Excellent application for keeping random change..."

    Version: File Synchronization 1.4.4

    Summary

    ...fil
    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    This application has very fast algorithms for the search and copy functions. The solution for syncing files is much better than just a simple backup, I often put files in different places, iDisk, external drives, portables etc. When I make an update to a presentation file from my server (iDisk, RAID etc) I lose sight sometimes on which file I made the changes to. Especially if it was copied to one of my MacBook Pros. If I make a last minute adjustment on my MacBook Pro now I'm out of sync with the server. So I simply set up a pairing between the Portable and the Main System which then always keeps them in Sync and up-to-date. The Log print out also keeps me informed on when I performed the sync. The developer is VERY fast to respond. I literally sent an email on an issue and he resolved it by a return email within 10 minutes. (He's got to be working too hard at the computer to respond that quick)

    "Great syncing program"

    May 10, 2009   |   By prestonholt

    Version: File Synchronization 1.4.4

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    This is the best file synchronization program for Mac I have ever used (and at a good price, to)!It had all of the specific settings I needed to make it run in the background. If you aren't sure about buying it, there is a 30 day trial. I would recommend this product to anyone in need of a file sync program for Mac.

    "Great file synchonisation"

    March 13, 2009   |   By tevirselrahc

    Version: File Synchronization 1.4.4

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    <p>I was looking for a simple tool to use that would let me synchronise two folders, one on my computer and one on an external drive. I use the external drive to move information between computers and as targeted, historical backups (I also use Time Machine). I tried using the Mac OS X workflow to set something up, but it kept making sure that the synchronisation was complete, i.e., not only additive. I've tried other tools, but they are either complex or limited. I really liked the ease of use of this tool, it has the capabilities I need (except for one...), and the price is not only right, it is good!</p>
    <p><b>Pros:</b></p>
    <ul><li>Ease of use</li><li>Good integration with OS</li><li>Full or additive sync possible</li><li>Preview mode</li><li>Price!</li></ul>
    <p><b>Cons:</b></p>
    <ul><li>No way to exclude file patterns or specific folders</li></ul>
