This is a superb syncing tool. I've tried many, and this one beats them all. MS's RichCopy is the most feature-rich, but it's problematic and difficult to use, especially from the command line.
This tool processes quickly and does exactly what it says. You have to pay attention to the settings, because you can mess things up royally if you misdirect the program, that's the way powerful tools work.
While the prog is pretty intuitive, more documentation would be helpful, especially when it comes to the command line. I want to hook this thing up to the Windows Scheduler, and I can't figure out how... I also have an email in to Dimio, but I don't know how busy he is.
I was surprised at the speed and integrity with which DSync
sync'd files in real-time mode to my external mirror drive.
There was only a four second delay in updating the external
mirror with modified or new files. Files deleted on your
primary drive can also be auto-deleted on mirror. Simple
setup and precision functionality that I was looking for in a
FREE product. It effectively allows me to RAID my internal
corporate laptop drive by mirroring to my external USB drive.
Now when my laptop OS files get corrupted (as in the case of
an incident yesterday), I can move my external USB drive to
another laptopPC to use for my work and email while my
corporate IT guys repair the laptop. And when repairs
arefinished, I just plug the USB drive back in to my laptop
and my updates files are resync'd back onto my primary
internal drive. DSynchronize can run as a service after the
sync jobs are defined (but you need to initially do a manual
sync to produce the mirrored folders before setting up
real-time mode because real-time mode performance would be
degraded until the mirror is initially established). What a
painless tools for business continuity during disasters.
Dsync is great to do common tasks, however 2 things bother me. First, it by default DELETES files from remote unit, 2nd the sync feature can not work with large locked files (as is with most utilities).
It is useful to transfer files between directories, but I like [...] but, they are not freeware.
