Syncing files from here to there is common among Mac users. There are many ways to sync files, starting with drag and drop to copy a folder of files, and ending with a complete bootable clone ala Carbon Copy Cloner or SuperDuper!
Somewhere in between there’s a comfortable middle ground that makes it easy to keep two folders of files in complete and automatic synchronization. Why? Think desktop iMac and MacBook notebook where you want the Documents folder and files synchronized between two devices. Or, you simply want a backup of files from your Mac to an externally attached storage device.
Sync Folders Pro does that with nine different sync modes, each managed three different ways. Real time automatic syncing, manual syncing, scheduled syncing. Some features are aimed at professionals, but at the basic level Sync Folders Pro uses the time honored Source of folders to be synchronized to a destination folder. After that, regardless of changes in one folder, they’re duplicated in the other folder.
The interface is straightforward; not as simple or elegant as SuperDuper! or Carbon Copy Cloner, but with enough additional features to make it more flexible when all you want is to keep a folder of files synchronized.
Sync Folders Pro has a number of professional level features, though. It can automatically mount network folders, then perform the sync operation, then disconnect. Automatically. Changed files and folders can be deleted or saved. It can also perform syncs on multiple file systems, including FAT32 for Windows files.
On the other end of the scale, it’s easy to setup the first sync with Sync Folders Pro. Choose the folders. Set the sync mode. Click. Wait. That’s it. I use it for automatically syncing up specific folders on my Mac so I don’t have to worry about forgetting to back up certain files later.
