"Can't do without it"
Has no problem syncing with Windows shares including my NAS boxes.
Correctly identifies files that have been moved to a different folder and apparently also moves them in the target rather than unnecessarily deleting and recreating them.
I routinely sync 300 gigabytes with hundreds of thousands of individual files and have never had the application choke.
You can review the exact details of what will be changed before executing the job.
The program stores a backup of the changed and deleted files in a hidden directory so you can recover mistakes. This can also be a con if the drive getting the changes is nearly full and you are making many changes.
Free testing period with the fully functional product.
There are very frequent program updates. That the developers keep working on it is encouraging, but makes me worry about lurking bugs and what problems may later surface in my backups.
When a job reports errors, there's a message to click on the "errors button" but I've never been able to find this button. (You can work out what the problem was from the detailed job report)
It's not obvious that it's advisable to run the program as administrator in Vista or Windows 7 or you will get some failed deletion errors.
Requires on-line activation which is a problem when attempting to move the program to a new machine or new OS.
I have been using this utility for a few years, both the previous version 8 and recently version 9, and find it well serves my needs.
