"Trust but verify - great tool to verify port to new NAS"

November 11, 2013  |  By Cheaperdude

 |  Version: FolderMatch 3.7.0

Pros

Simple, does what it says it does.
Easy interface, it offers to run tutorial after 1st load.

Cons

Still looking for way to filter or sort out just folders in list with certain characteristic (i.e. different, orphaned, the same, etc.)

Summary

Carefully moved 1.5 TB from one NAS to a new one using the NAS built-in porting software. This filematch gave peace of mind seeing all green checks. Played with some more, and was able to confirm 100% match between original folders and some extra backup folders that had been created over the years. Saved about 100GB ditching duplicates over the years. Will see if they sell a duplicate finder. If so, will get that too.

"Love at first use!!! It's sooo very good!!!"

February 28, 2012  |  By _CHS_

 |  Version: FolderMatch 3.6.7

Pros

Does EXACTLY what it is supposed to do, WOW, how novel! It is extremely fast (Dell L702X, W7x64 Intel I5), very intuitive and downright FUN to use 'cause I've been putting off cleaning up all my stuff (2 int & 4 ext HDD's, thumb drives, etc) for way, way too long.

To quote ATCbuff:
"Product is flawless. Works great on Win 7 64 ultimate. The best of the best though is their customer service! Quick and accurate responses everytime. These guys are one of the last..."

Here! Here! I could not agree more...

Cons

Cons? Oh yes indeed... Why oh why don't all companies, software/hardware, computer/non-computer simply do the right thing, do what I expect - tell the truth about their product, deal with customers fairly, openly, honestly? (And yes, I'm very much aware that I'm expecting too much in this day and age. Been told many times that I over expect, not pragmatic, realistic, etc.)

Summary

If you need to clean up multiple, random copies of "stuff" (tech term) look no further - this is nirvana! Even got it for $25 because I ordered during the first week of the trial period - cheap at many times the price.

and yes i'm very excited about something so simple and straight forward that makes my life sooo much easer... and no I am not affiliated with the company in any way, have no idea who/where they're located.

I had a couple of questions about updates, etc. and my email was answered fully, within hours and with humor! Imagine that!!! Thanks Salty Brine and Dee Sharpe. Ya'll got some great karma goin'...

"Same as 3.4.8?"

December 12, 2009  |  By moeg_99

 |  Version: FolderMatch 3.5.5

Pros

I did not run 3.5.5, as it will not validate with my paid 3.4.8 purchase. 3.4.8 runs good enough to not pay again. TechTracker does NOT tell you if you have a free upgrade, only says free to try... even if you already paid for a previous version.

Cons

I really like 3.4.8. Works great!

Summary

Never tried the new version.

"Excellent quality software, very fast, very easy to use"

December 02, 2009  |  By Jules Brenner

 |  Version: FolderMatch 3.5.5

Pros

Extremely easy to use
Very powerful and intuitive
Great user experience
Great value for money
Very fast.
Small footprint for installation

Cons

Only one negative - I don't have the pleasure of using it enough.

Summary

If you want to quickly and easily compare your folders and drives, and compare files, I can't imagine anyone developing a simpler, more effective solution than FolderMatch. It is totally worth every cent.

"Wouldn't be without it"

April 16, 2009  |  By SheilaB8

 |  Version: FolderMatch 3.5.5

Pros

I always start backing up tidily, but eventually end up with multiple copies scattered across computers and standalone hard drives. FolderMatch helps me get organised again!

Cons

Nothing I don't like

"It only seemed to want configure frontpage and not run!"

January 28, 2009  |  By psmar1

 |  Version: FolderMatch 3.5.3

Pros

None......

Cons

Unfortunately it tried to install Frontpage (for which I don't have the disk) and then wouldn't cancel. I had to kill the application. I tried again and the second time it ran and then tried to install Frontpage again as soon as I hit "compare"
