|File Synchronization is a utility that has
the ability to synchronize multiple pairs of folders or files. It has
been designed to be easy to use and fast. It was based
originally on the File Synchronization tool provided by Apple
with the old Mac OS, but has many improvements and features to help
get the job done quickly and efficiently.
Automatically mounts remote volumes in the background when needed.
Preview mode lets you
“see” what will happen.
Preview mode allows for managing files that need to be synchronized.
Optional logging of all
Multithreaded for smooth
operation even when copying hundreds of megabytes.
No document to open or
manage: all files and folders and their settings are
automatically saved and accessible through the main window.
Filters lets you ignore
some files and/or folders that you don’t want to synchronize.
you select the interval and the pairs and File Synchronization will
synchronize them repeatedly according to the time interval.
Option to move orphaned
files to the trash instead of deleting them.
Option to keep orphaned
files that have been modified since the last synchronization.
Option to delete unwanted
files from the preview window.
Options to automatically
start synchronizing when the application is launched and quit after the synchronization
completes. Using a free application like CronniX, you can now schedule synchronization
sessions anytime and any way you want.
Hierarchical list views
that let you see the folder hierarchy of any element displayed in the main,
preview or error windows. You can open in the Finder any element in these
list views by double-clicking them.
Option to present an
alert dialog when a file is about to be deleted or moved to the trash.
Error reporting can offer
possible solutions to common problems and displays additional information
regarding any error occuring

Very fast! One of the
fastest tool available. Some other tools claim that they use CRC-based techniques
to determine which file has changed. Even though checking CRC on files can
tell if they are or are not exactly the same, there is no way you can determine
which file is newer using this technique. You have to rely on the modification
date, which File Synchronization does pretty quickly.
The most affordable tool to synchronize. Why pay $30, $50 or $100 when you can have File Synchronization for only $9 on macZOT?

you have a bunch of personal, or “key” files, like your Entourage
environment, your web browser bookmarks, your budget in Quicken, etc.
You would like to use the desktop computer, but without those “key” files, it’s
almost impossible. Using File Synchronization, this
problem is fixed: before opening a session on your desktop computer,
would just synchronize the files/folders that make sense to you. When
you’re done with the desktop computer, just repeat the initial
synchronization. As an added bonus, you are actually performing a

You run an array of web servers to provide load balancing and
fail-over. So, the html files need to be the same on each web server
when one file is updated, it needs to be copied to all the other web
servers. Manually this could be a bit of a pain, but with automatic
synchronization, this will be a breeze.
This application requires a Macintosh computer running Mac OS X version 10.2 (Jaguar) or better. Fully compatible with Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard).
