    "Robust, Solid, Fast, configurable, but pricey."

    July 15, 2013   |   By ZZBaron

    Version: Synchronize! Pro X 6.5.1

    Pros

    • Fast
    • Very Reliable
    • good configuration options
    • Can be set to auto-run
    • New fast sync feature really helps on subsequent runs of the same backup or sync

    Cons

    • At $100.00, it's expensive. Especially with the price of most competitors considerably less, and with the growing amount of cloud backup and storage gradually lessening the need for software like this
    • Only allows auto sync to be run from two computers
    • Interface really could use a new coat of paint. It basically hasn't changed since it's inception.

    Summary

    I use this for cloning my laptop drive as a bootable backup drive
    Synchronizing a master folder between two computers.

    Backing up a media drive, but limiting some folders,

    I like the product.

    "Software does not work as advertised"

    May 30, 2013   |   By tech_guy_13

    Version: Synchronize! Pro X 6.5.1

    Pros

    Hugh Songtag is the sole employee and developer of Qdea which makes syncronize! Pro. He does not care if the product works and is more than happy to take your money. Just call the support number and speak with him yourself. This guy needs a personalty transplant.

    Cons

    Software is broken and does not work as advertised.
    Tech support is not responsive, surly and obtuse.
    It's hard to believe that this company is still in business.

    Summary

    I would rate this software, the company and the owner below 0 if it was possible.

    Warning do not purchase anything from Qdea!!!

    It is quite funny to hear such an angry man insult you unprovoked. This is good fun for a laugh if you are really bored. Think of the adventures of Peter and Raymond "Shut up Little Man!"

    "Very strong features, versatile and highly reliable"

    August 30, 2011   |   By johnnydeluxe123

    Version: Synchronize! Pro X 6.2

    Pros

    Has more features than I have ever seen in one product. Transparent process, especially useful for synchronizing, where one wants to see and manage what happens - in real time. Has 3 main functions: Backup, synch and make bootable start-up disk.

    Cons

    Might seem a little expensive and one needs to renew the license every two years, but I have not found a single other product that can do what this product does.I have tested more than 10+ other apps - and allways went back to use Synchronize! Pro.

    Summary

    Great product, that might deserve an updated user-interface, but don't underestimate the product. It's highly reliable, makes the processes transparent and deserves to be listed among the very best of its' kind. And I'm not on the payroll of that company. Over the years I have contacted the company a couple of times and has received useful assistance or answers. The many settings might look confusing to newcomers, but the standard-settings will work in most instances. Try it out against other products and you will see what I mean.

    "Does the job but shows its age"

    September 29, 2010   |   By Eerk

    Version: Synchronize! Pro X 6.1.3

    Pros

    Does what it says: synchronize files. Can create bootable backups (great). Has enough pro options and settings to create very complex backup schedules, including hands-off scheduled ones.

    Cons

    The interface is not changed in all the years that I've been using it and especially the settings are very tough to go through.

    "Still the best Mac OS X backup application"

    September 26, 2010   |   By JuanDaRiguera

    Version: Synchronize! Pro X 6.1.3

    Pros

    Fully automatable and customizable; constantly under development; Sync Pro X is the top of the line in backup software.

    Cons

    There are no "cons".

    Summary

    If you need a backup application with the kind of flexibility and features Sync Pro X provides, there's nothing else that comes close. This is NOT an application for the casual user who just wants to back up a bunch of data. There are all kinds of apps that can do that. But if you need serious backup capability (for example, the ability to copy "No access" folders and files with root privileges), you need Sync Pro X. Sure, you can do all that stuff in Terminal.app...IF you know what you're doing, and IF you don't mind screwing around with command line input. But if you want to automate your backups, including opening various files, running scripts, mounting or unmounting connected volumes, invoking other applications, or even shutting down your computer as part of the backup sequence, Sync Pro X is the app to get.

    "The best and most fully-featured backup app for OS X"

    September 12, 2010   |   By JuanDaRiguera

    Version: Synchronize! Pro X 6.1.2

    Pros

    It's well-supported and has all the advanced backup and sync features I need

    Cons

    There isn't anything I don't like about it.

    Summary

    If you just want to back up folders or other data, you don't need Synchronize! Pro X. But if you need powerful folder synchronization features, no-fault bootable backups of entire system volumes or disks, incremental backups (backup only the files that have changed), and fully automated backups with the ability to mount remote volumes, execute scripts, call other applications, open and close specific files, or even shutdown or reboot a computer as part of a backup sequence, Sync Pro X is the backup application you're looking for.

    I've been a user since v1.2.2, and I've tried many other backup apps (including CCC). Some of them do some things well, but none of them do all the things Sync Pro X does. If you need serious, professional, fully-featured backup capability, Sync Pro X isn't just the best, it's the ONLY backup app that provides it all.

    "Registration Kills it"

    August 26, 2010   |   By MEADIAsolutions

    Version: Synchronize! Pro X 6.1.2

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I only need to use this software a couple times a year. The software is very powerful but unfortunately, their registration process is painful, slow and there is no way to move it easily to another computer. It also does NOT work with mobile accounts if you are using OS X server. I am frustrated this time enough that I logged into VT only to give a negative review. ie. If you sell your computer, or wipe the drive, or trade-up, it will take you a day or two before you can use the software again. FOr this reason I do NOT recommend the software and do not sell it to customers.

    - Frustrated.

    "Good Software BAD LICENSING MODEL"

    December 26, 2009   |   By Fabsoft6

    Version: Synchronize! Pro X 6.1.1

    Pros

    Works fine for Synchronizing folders and files

    Cons

    YOU GET A 2yrs license for 100$ It is a rip off. BUT THAT IS NOT THE ONLY PROBLEM.. If you don't update your SW regularly you get stuck with a really old version and you CANNOT find online the latest version that you can upgrade to with your license

    Summary

    YOU GET A 2yrs license for 100$ It is a rip off. BUT THAT IS NOT THE ONLY PROBLEM.. If you don't update your SW regularly you get stuck with a really old version and you CANNOT find online the latest version that you can upgrade to with your license ---- IT IS DEFINITELY A RIP - OFF
    The licensing model is absolutely unfair and if you are not careful you will waste 100$.
