"Assures backups are accurate. Also finds duplicates"

January 04, 2009  |  By jtowle2001

 |  Version: FolderMatch 3.4.8

Pros

Easy to compare two directories (inluding subdirectories). If there are differences, you can SYNC by copying in either direction, or two-way updating. Includes File comparisons, and Duplicate finder. I use it when doing backups and duplicating directdories for CD storage.

Cons

If you change one file, or copy from one directory to another, the program requires a scan of ALL subdirectories, even those left alone during the modification. It slows down things, but they'll probably work on that for a future release. It doesn't affect the usefulness, just some time waiting for comparing directories that have already been compared.

"Alzheimer's"

May 21, 2008  |  By angerson

 |  Version: FolderMatch 3.4.8

Cons

Beware, this software developer might have Alzheimer's. I purchased version 3.4.8. The email with the key file stated, "This email contains your personalized permanent registration key" and "This registration key will work for ALL future revisions of FolderMatch". Note that is says "ALL future revisions". They put the "ALL" in caps and not me. So, in review, it is "permanent" and "ALL future revisions".

Now, they want to charge me $15 to upgrade to version 3.5.0. What???? Remember is said, "permanent" and "ALL future revisions".

It was less than two years ago that I purchased the software. So, do they have short term or long term memory loss? I just want to know how far along the Alzheimer's is.

If you have read the end of the program's help file, you might ask.... WWJD?

"Extremely Useful software"

January 30, 2008  |  By kmjake

 |  Version: FolderMatch 3.4.8

Pros

FolderMatch is easy to use. I use it on an almost daily basis, so I can backup my work computer onto an external hard drive. This allows me to use the backup at home easily - instead of using backup software that encrypts or compresses the data. I really don't know what I would do without this!!

It has several ways to match the files and you can choose to ignore or not small time differences and daylight savings time differences

Cons

I have not discovered ANY problems with it in over 2 years of use.

"Locks up on big drives"

December 11, 2007  |  By boson

 |  Version: FolderMatch 3.4.8

Pros

Free trial is handy to test out the product

Cons

Locks up. Warns that you must run FolderMatch with no other software running on computer at same time - what a joke!

"Excellent!!"

December 05, 2007  |  By rcwis02

 |  Version: FolderMatch 3.4.8

Pros

Tremendous time saver. I've used foldermatch on several occasions where I mixed up files (images) between two folders or had folders containing duplicate items. Foldermatch lets you compare those two folders and see whats duplicated allowing you to safely delete the duplicates!

Cons

I can't think of anything.

"Great tool for synchronizing files, folders, drives."

November 26, 2007  |  By bsnyder95

 |  Version: FolderMatch 3.4.8

Pros

Intuitive interface. Can easily manage how the results are displayed. Flexible criteria and compare options. Appears to be much faster than some of the other products I tried. Works with local, mapped, and networked drives.

Cons

I would like to see the ability to setup sheduled (automatic) syncs in future versions.

"FolderMatch is indispensible for my business."

November 10, 2007  |  By DCpix

 |  Version: FolderMatch 3.4.8

Pros

With multiple backup copies of files scattered around my computer and networked drives, it doesn't take long for clutter to pile up. FolderMatch is an efficient, easy to use tool for consolidating files and deleting unnecessary duplicates. I couldn't do without it. This company is very responsive to customer inquiries and works hard to maintain good rapport. Wish I could give them more than five stars.

"Absolutely indispensible"

June 23, 2007  |  By ckniess

 |  Version: FolderMatch 3.4.8

Pros

Four years ago I searched for a program to sychronize files between my desktop and laptop computers, and this program was the only one with the features I needed. I still appreciate how fast and easy FolderMatch is to use. Provides plenty of options so you can zero in on just the files you want to sychronize. I use it on my home network, and then take my laptop to work and sychronize folders on my other various computers (PCs/Macs) and network harddrives using FolderMatch from my laptop. An excellent tool!

"Excellent product, superb customer service"

June 12, 2007  |  By MelleBS2

 |  Version: FolderMatch 3.4.8

Pros

The product is user friendly and provides a service that I much needed. It is quick, accurate and so inexpensive for the service it provides. I had to call Customer Service as I misplaced my Registration Key and they replied within a few hours, located my information and sent me the info I needed. I am most impressed.
