FoldersSynchronizer is a nifty and popular utility for Macintosh which synchronizes and backs-up files, folders and disks. The user can choose one or more pairs of files/folders/disks and then they will be synchronized/backed-up exactly.

When synchronizing, the old files will be replaced with the newest files in both directions. The new files (new entries) will be copied in both directions, as well as new Folders. The old Folders will not replaced entirely by the newer ones, as the Finder used to do, but their content will be updated with the newest files, the new files (new entries) and new Folders (new entries). FoldersSynchronizer can execute incremental or exact synchronizations. The incremental synchronization (default) never deletes items from the folders. The exact synchronization deletes from a folder, all the items no longer existing in the specular folder.

When backing up, the destination folder will be upgraded with the newest files, the new files (new entries) and the new Folders (new entries) coming from the source folder; the source folder will be left untouched. FoldersSynchronizer can execute incremental or exact backups. The incremental backup (default) never deletes items. The exact backup deletes from the destination folder, all the items no longer existing in the source folder, and it never deletes items nested inside the source folder.

On each single session, FS can apply special options like Timer, Multiple Folders, Filters, Excluding Items List, Resolve Conflicts, Automount Local and Remote Volumes, Settings. Take a look at the Overwiew to know more about each single option.

Here the user can specify global settings like whether FS should make a preview listing all the files FS is going to copy, replace and delete. Also he can specify to save a log file, to send a log file to a custom email address, to sync and automatically quit the application, to run the application with the root's privileges, and more.

This download is the free trial version of FoldersSynchronizer. The full version can be purchased directly from the author for around $40.00 USD. See program documentation for details.
