DSynchronize - keeping folders or portable drives updated

review by Dave at DavesComputerTips, Sept 2006, permalink


Dave wrote me with a tip on this fine little program. It allows you to sync files in folders or drives. Here's what Wikipedia says about file syncing.


File Synchronization in computing is the process of making sure that two or more locations contain the same up-to-date information. If you add, change, or delete a file from one location, the synchronization process will add, change, or delete the same file from the other location. (read more)


From Dave at Dave's Computer Tips

I also have a great little program I would like to share with you. It’s named DSynchronize. It is a simple, free, light weight program (only 155k) to sync files and folders. It’s similar to Microsoft SyncToy and SyncBack. It has many more features than SyncToy, and is much cheaper (free) than Syncback. DSynchronize is very powerful, yet easy to setup and use. Some features are: autostart, run as a Windows service, and realtime sync. You should definitely check it out!


Thanks for the tip Dave! Last week I reviewed another program from this author called DtaskManager. Here's a screenshot and more info on DSynchronize.



Quote from the website

DSynchronize is a stand-alone utility that let you periodically synchronize two or more folders on Hard Disk, Floppy Disk, LAN, USB Key, CD-DVD (with packet writing software) and FTP server.


It is also possible to specify the time and the day to schedule the synchronization to run, and to create some additional "filters" for other factors.


Real-Time sync is also supported.
