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.
View differences between pairs of folders on screen using user defined coloured coding.

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.

Built in scheduling abilities and option to run as a Menu Bar Application.

Notable Features are...
• Run as Menu Bar App or Standard App.
• Fast Comparison Engine based on Modified Date and File Size.
• Fast Synchronization Options as only the files that are different are manipulated.
• Ability to save pairs of folders to Presets for quick and easy repeat of synchronisation.
• Schedule Presets to run at any specific time on any chosen days (iCal not required).
• Presets can be set to repeat automatically at user defined time intervals.
• Presets can be grouped to allow complex backup sets to be created and run with ease in the Sync Queue.
• Users have the choice of using automatic synchronisation options or performing copy and delete tasks manually.
• Provides a preview of all changes that will take place prior to actually committing those changes to disk.
• Sync external Hard Disks (USB, NAS etc) with your Mac and vice-versa
• Sync Macs across a network.
• Multi-Touch track pad support offering fast scrolling and difference navigation.
• Quick Look and Finder Integration.
• Very Configurable Interface and Synchronisation options.
• Filtering abilities to allow you focus on the differences that need your attention as well as easily excluding folders/files.
• Powerful built in selection commands allowing you to quickly grab the files you need, great for those manual synchronisations!
• Run Syncs in a Sync Queue at the same time as working on another Sync in the main window.
• Extensive Logging System

Great App, but a Little Weak over a Dormant Network Connection


I like this app. It does a great job for my main use, syncing folders on two different computers on my home network, but only when I first manually make sure the distant drive is not only mounted but also “awake” or “actively mounted.” Syncs often fail when I try to sync to a folder on a drive that was mounted a long time ago but has not been accessed recently. When that happens, I see no evidence of failure until I search out a log file.

I would like to see this app enhanced to have the ability to “touch” or “remount” a distant drive, on a different computer, that has not been accessed in a while and has apparently gone to sleep; wait a few seconds; and then proceed with the sync. It may not be possible to do this in all network scenarios, but it should at least be possible to do it in a simple home network environment with computers that are already on and sharing folders and have merely dozed off because of inactivity for some time.

Or perhaps the same thing could be accomplished with some Automator actions for Folder Sync. However, I would prefer to see Folder Sync add the capacity internal without needing to use Automator.

This is a great app, but it would be even better with this additional network functionality built-in. It seems like rather simple functionality.

Does what it says it does - really. UPDATED FOR V1.3.0


I have been at the data matching game since 8086 days.. This program does what it says it does. Pay the money and be happy. I use a PC (business) and mac (to do what the PC won't)...I use 2 external drives and sync all 4 devices flawlessly...(ok I have to copy paste stuff to the PC manually...) I am content with the performance and ease of use. Nuff said.

Version 1.3.0...I just installed and tried to use. MAJOR BUG ! When the software copies to external drive it incriments file time by 1 second and renders the file "different" from the computer then repots the difference as a need to re-copy file to external. I reverted to version 1.2.0 and the problem went away. Author needs to correct !!

Simply outstanding! Especially if you want control over the process


I like having the ability to compare directories, choose what sync does in each direction (leaving or deleting orphan files), etc. Folder Sync does that!! You can copy, delete files individually as well. Somethings cannot be done via script, you need to see and have control on what's happening.

Now I can keep my iMac and MacBook Pro in perfect sync. I have too much for Dropbox or any other service to handle. Plus I like keeping my Movies directories in sync. This was a headache, but no more.

Works beautifully and gives me perfect control for each scenario with my various syncs. Simply outstanding!
