The real true bidirectional synchronization tool! Many other synchronization apps here use the Unix tool rsync to do their job but they can't offer bidirectional sync. Ask them before buying, you'll see!
File Synchronization synchronizes multiple pairs of folders or files. It has been designed to be easy to use: choose 2 folders to synchronize then click the Synchronize button and you're done! However, there are multiple options when your needs get a little more complicated. The interface is easy to use and the application is quick to do any synchronization that you might need.
3 different synchronization modes to use depending on what you want to achieve:
Automatic mode: whenever the content of one of the folder you synchronize changes, the synchronization is performed so you can be sure that the 2 folders are always synchronized. You set it once and then forget about it
Repeat mode: the synchronization is performed at a regular interval that you set in the preferences. Good when you're constantly making changes and don't want the folders to be continuously synchronized
Manual mode: whenever you want to perform the synchronization, you select the pair in the list and click Synchronize. Ideal if you synchronize a folder that is on a remote volume that might not always be available
2 different synchronization directions:
Bidirectional: changes in both folders that are synchronized are duplicated in both folders. Best when changes can occur in each folder that you synchronize
Unidirectional: changes that occur in one of the folder you synchronize are duplicated in the other folder. If you want to have an exact backup of a folder, that's the synchronization mode to use. You can choose to backup the folder on the left or on the right
See how many items are going to be copied and deleted and what the sizes of those items to copy and delete are
Check what is going to happen if the synchronization is performed
Decide which item is going to replace the other
Remove some items from the list from being synchronized
Delete items you don't want to be synchronized
Synchronization options for each pair:
Select the synchronization mode
Choose the synchronization direction of that pair
Set filters to ignore certain items
Decide what happens with orphaned files and recently modified files
Ignore warnings when both copies of the same file have been modified since the last synchronization
Include or not invisible items
See the status of the last synchronization session and when it was last synchronized
Multiple sources for the synchronization:
Remote volumes shared by another Mac on your network or by a Windows computer
USB flash drive
Store login information for remote volumes so that they can be automatically mounted the next time they are needed
Any volume you can access in the Finder can be used
Can generate a log each time a synchronization is performed
Error reporting gives you a description of an error so you can fix it
Hierarchical views show you exactly where an item is in any list. Double-click an item and it will be selected in the Finder
Note: if you have an issue with the new version, please contact us instead of stating that you're not pleased. We strive to make everybody happy with their purchase but we can't help if you complain here without ever contacting us! Some people obviously post comments while they're missing some important features. Let us help you. You won't have any help by posting comments here.
Fixes a bug that would occur with a uni-directional synchronization on certain type of disk where when the copy would be performed, File Synchronization would invert the source and the destination in the progress dialog
Fixes a display problem where the progress dialog would get random lines of text in it if you are using a mouse with a scroll wheel and would scroll the list of pairs under the progress dialog
Fixes a problem where if you were to perform a synchronization and nothing would need to be replaced, the last synchronization date would not be updated
