Editors' review

Data-backup sticklers will insist you need an archive utility with tons of features and round-the-clock support, but this affordable shareware alternative delivers a still-impressive feature set at a fraction of the cost of commercial programs. FoldersSynchronizer X provides an easy (if somewhat awkward at first) interface for synchronizing or backing up files, folders, and disks. You can conduct both operations either incrementally or exactly, so you can choose whether outdated files will be automatically preserved or deleted. FoldersSynchronizer X offers a surprising number of options for using timers, excludes, and filters (for example, you could schedule a weekly backup of just Photoshop files). You also can work easily with remote volumes, and this version even lets you back up the whole Mac OS X boot disk and make it bootable. If you're looking to archive your work or even your whole drive, this program offers everything you need.

    "Excellent backup program"

    September 01, 2012   |   By tokunagaa002

    Version: FoldersSynchronizer 4.1.0

    Pros

    Using this for years. Just moved to Mountain Lion; loaded the most recent version and encountered no problems. Only problem is related to Mountain Lion-- it hides the Library folder. Need to use chflags command in unix to make the Library folder visible.

    Cons

    No problems encountered.

    "Really good back up program.. easy to use"

    February 09, 2012   |   By jltnol--2008

    Version: FoldersSynchronizer 4.1.0

    Pros

    The big PRO for me is, that IT WORKS! It copies all the files, all the time.

    Cons

    The only Con is the UI can be a 'tad confusing if you've got more than one back up job planned... but once you get the hang of it, you are golden. Really, this app is easy to use.

    Summary

    I've tried Intego Backup Express, and Chronosync, an neither worked as well as FS does.... I mean REALLY.... we're just copying files... how hard can it be? Harder than it would seem. Both of the other apps I tried just didn't copy all the data..

    Previous to this, my favorite program was one called Sync, by Decimus, but they have put that app on auto pilot now, so there is no way to know whether your back ups are working, until you need them only to discover that they haven't been working> :(
