Keep multiple pairs of folders in sync, quickly and easily. Great for backups and for managing content on USB drives, memory cards, and other computers/drives on your network.

Folder Sync allows you to utilise a fully automatic sync (Sync to Left, Sync to Right or Sync Both Ways) making only the required changes to keep this as fast as possible.
You can also manually manipulate the files yourself in order to copy or delete just the files you select for the ultimate in control, something that other synchronisation applications do not offer.

What's New in Version 1.4.7
More fixes for Mavericks.
- Fixes preset editing issues
- Fixes sync option editing issues
- Fixes preset group editing issues
- Requires OSX 10.7+
Backing up and syncing problems solved!
I had a ropey old external HDD as a backup that would continually disconnect from my Mac. This made copying 700GB+ of files from the failing drive to the new drive VERY tedious as it would always crash before completion and OSX would have to start from the beginning each time.
Firstly this app allowed me to compare folders and files. Then it allowed me act on this and to sync the drives. And although it took longer than a straight up copy and paste, 10 HDD failures (whilst this was processing) and the ability for it to sync and compare each time, meant I eventually accomplished the task in full and resulted in a final compare of everything being perfect.
A great purchase and it solved a massive headache. Thanks!
Great for copying, not so good with deleted files.
As someone has stated the App cannot handle delted files very well, they either stay put or keep reappearing once delted. There needs to be a ‘mirror’ option on the sync so Left/Right are identical as even Syncing Left/Right doesn’t solve the problem. Other than that the app is great, if you need to just copy files it’s good.
The latest update (1.4.7) has cured the one big problem I had with this app… preset editing. It now works perfectly for me.
This utility is now well worh a 5* rating.
