    "Assures backups are accurate. Also finds duplicates"

    January 4, 2009  |   By jtowle2001


    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.


    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.

    I had same complaint about rescan after every delete or move - then found under OPTIONS can turn that off. So no cons at all. Only other option looking for is sort by type of difference. Am sure it is in there but since only been using it for about an hour (and getting a lot done) not too worried.
