Editors' Review

by   / December 01, 2009

File Synchronizer is a simple utility that allows users to synchronize the contents of files or drives. It's not the most intuitive program we've ever used, but it does seem to work effectively.

The program loses points for its interface, which is virtually impossible to figure out without consulting the online Help file. All of the program's features are organized in a column down the middle of the interface, which divides the two volumes that are going to be synchronized. Once we'd reviewed the Help file, it was easy enough to choose the two folders we wanted to synchronize and have the program analyze and synchronize them. The program offers several options for synchronization, including moving all files in the first folder to the second folder or vice versa, or synchronizing all the files between both folders. Users can also clone folders or have the program synchronize based on the relative age or size of files. Overall, we found the program quite easy to use once we got familiar with the way the interface was arranged. We do wish that the program was a little more intuitive, but in general we felt that it combined several useful features in a way that was not terribly difficult to understand.

File Synchronizer is free. It comes as a ZIP file and installs desktop icons without asking, but it uninstalls cleanly. We recommend this program to all users seeking a simple way to synchronize files.
