Though not terribly intuitive, it is very robust. Free makes it all the better. It would be nice if it could startup in either minimized mode or silent. I use it for uni-directional syncing to the server.

It can only use Java 6 on an Intel machine. On a PPC machine it has to use Java 5. I assume this still works under Leopard PPC?

Yep, version 9 requires Java 6, so it will only run on Snow Leopard.

Works well, but why everything in zipformat? If it had the choice of zipping/not zipping/.dmg format I would certainly use this program. But it doesn't. Shame, it looks good.
