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.
A good easy to use package. The user interface is somewhat clumsy but this software is ideal for backing up data AND synchronizing data between disks.
Will take some learning to use, but this thing is very powerful!
Well, after using syncback for a long time, I feel I have found something better. It's very easy to configure, more back up time options and does the job well. I love the real time backup, although "experimental" currently, it works very good. It does take a lot of resources though, more so than Halo or VM and slows my machine down drastically. Once again, back to the understanding it's just in it's early stages so no prob here. I am simply happy to have the real time when needed! If they need beta testers or anything, I'm in! This is going to be one of the best sync tools out there.
DSynchronize does what all sync tools should do, simply work. It's UI is well thought out, the core of the app seems to be well implemented and is very stable. Once the input and output directories have been specified, it can be set to do it's job automatically. It can even perform realtime sync as well as timed ones. Very flexible app. If you need an app for file sync operations, give DSynchronizer a go. It gets the freeware top notch award from me. Out of all the apps that I have tried for this purpose, nothing even come close to this application.
I have used this app a lot the last 2 years. It is small and easy to understand. But most important it does things right. I have tested a lot of other syncs and all of them skip files. I have not yet found any errors with this one. And its free!
I've tried any number of sync tools, and for making sure that my laptop is in sync with the desktop machine (just a couple of folders) this is without a doubt the best I've used.
Just set up the the folders you may need to keep in sync and check the ones you need for the occasion.
For whole drive back-up I still prefer Tarylynn, but to sync a few folders with the laptop this is the best.
Program is simple to use and does the job without any fuss. I've been using it for a while now and it has worked faultlessly the whole time. Well worth giving it a go.
This is a very small, fast, and simple synchronizer. I highly recommend it.
Just the kind of tool I was looking for. And it's so small. No registry-nonsense and very easy to control. I can really recommend this program.
I've been looking for a program like this for literally years! It's simple, it's easy to setup and use, it doesn't mess around with registries or installers, and - most importantly - it does exactly what I need it to do. A program that quickly and reliably gives me an exact duplicate/backup of my entire data drive! Easy and sensible handling of filters, file deletions, and folders. I've tried countless more complicated or supposedly "easy" file synchro utils, and none of them would just do the one simple thing I wanted without a bunch of fuss and tweaking. With this program, I just clicked a few boxes, selected my drives, and it actually just WORKED! I almost couldn't believe it, so I tried some more tests, and it STILL worked. And it has a few more cool-sounding options that I can explore later. Definitely a very high recommendation!
Brilliant tool to use. It's a breeze to setup, can be scheduled, autostarted, no install required, stable, small footprint, and very quick. Wouldn't look any further, this tool does everything it is supposed to do.
Make sure it saves changes on exit. Note that autostart uses a different ini file (located in user profile folder) which is a bit confusing at start. But besides being a minor glitch, it's also a good feature.
