Is it just me, or does anybody else think that this tool is the worst thing that can happen to your privacy?

I mean you configure the shared folders through a web interface on their server(!), which already means that they know what files your have on your computer.

Also they read your addressbook for giving you options to invite other users to their service.

Also they privacy-statements says that they are allowed to save information about your files/folders for evaluation (not the content).

People, DON'T use this. They are watching you.

"You can do this easier, more reliably and faster with applescript/automator/folder actions."

No you cannot.

However, I couldn't get this service to work. A UNIX tool called Unison may be the solution. In another six-months I bet somebody has written a front end to Unison that will be free and be easier to use than this Folder Share garbage. Not to mention Unison will use SFTP, which uses a single port (easier FW setup) and may be more secure than this service.

If you are a gear head, go lookup Unison right now. Using it is a snap if you have just a little UNIX experience.

Using a Usenet newsreader for this sort of thing seems goofy to me.

Anonymous does not know what he is talking about - you can not duplicate what FolderShare does via applescript. He does not even know what FolderShare does.

You can do this easier, more reliably and faster with applescript/automator/folder actions. Why this needs to be an application that costs anything (or exist in the first place) is a mystery.
