Moleskinsoft File Sync

By Moleskinsoft Free Editors' Rating

Any time you start moving files around--back and forth between a thumb drive and a computer, for example, or between two computers--you run the risk of something getting duplicated or left behind. Moleskinsoft File Sync is an easy way to compare and sync folders to ensure that your files are exactly where they need to be. We've seen syncing utilities with more features, but this one works just fine for basic syncing.

The program's interface is plain and intuitive. We liked the fact that users can create and save particular tasks, allowing them to easily compare and sync the same folders multiple times without having to re-enter the folders' locations. We also liked that the program can handle not only folders, but ZIP files as well. Once the two folders are entered, users click Analyze to see which files are present in both folders, and which are present in only one. Users can then sync the files between folders in either direction, using a variety of parameters. This part of the program is a little bit confusing; there's a drop-down menu of sorts that lets users view files going from left to right, right to left, files to overwrite, files to delete, and so on. It's not entirely clear how this works at first glance, and users should probably experiment with it a bit before trying the program with really important files. This problem is compounded by the fact that the program doesn't have a Help file; although most aspects of the program are pretty self-explanatory, we still had questions. Overall, Moleksinsoft File Sync didn't totally knock our socks off, but it's a good, basic file-syncing program that's fairly easy to use.

Moleskinsoft File Sync installs a desktop icon without asking but uninstalls cleanly. We recommend this program to everyone.
