30 November 2017

Share files and folders between OS X machines.

Overview

DropCopy uses Apple's Bonjour technology to help you to easily and quickly share files and folders between multiple Macs across your LAN. You simply drag your files in the Finder to a drop-zone containing a list of destinations (see screenshot) and drop it on the destination of your choice. This list conveniently disappears when one is not dragging things over it. Also supports clipboard sharing and short text messages.

DropCopy is free for individual users (up to 3 machines on a network) and has a suggested shareware price of $25 for a full site license. Also works great with DropCopy mobile to transfer files to and from your iPhone.

Delighted to report 2.03 works on Sierra as it used to do - congrats to dev for updating and producing an app that "just works". Easy transfer between/among devices on same network (MB Air, Mini, iPad, iPhone) with a drag and drop. That's it!

spoke too soon - restart and no joy with 2.03 on Sierra, even with SIP disabled. Seems file sig still not accepted by system. Back to 1.8.5 Headless/signed working fine under Sierra

Dropcopy can work on Sierra - go to Dev's web page and check out the FAQs - download and install the "headless" version - its 1.8.5 but works on Sierra Everytime you restart, will have to go to Security Preference and allow, but Dropcopy 1.8.5 Headless works on Sierra. VERY happy as Apple's Airdrop just doesn't work on my network. Dropcopy quick and painless and "just works" 5 Stars!!!

Lovely concept and implementation. But... It doesn't work for me on two Macs, both running Yosemite (OS X 10.10.3). I run DropCopy on both Macs on the same network, but when I try to transfer a file (a large one: > 3 GB), only 154 KB gets copied to the target machine, and then DropCopy's "landing zone" just dies. The menu bar icon is still present, but there's no indication of activity, and when I quit the app, no warning or message is given about a tranfer in progress. I've read the docs, gone through the support forum (which is read-only), tried a number of different configurations, but nothing works. Since the latest update was posted on June 10, 2015, one would think the developers would include Yosemite support. I'll keep my eyes open for an update that works, but in the meantime, I'm just going to revert to the tried-and-true file sharing built-in that I've used for years.

It offers an easy to use way for file-transfering. Does the job very good. It is free.

Fails under Mavericks. Mini and Air on same network, each 'sees' the other but nothing ever gets transferred. I have added specific IP address for each machine and even when selecting specific IP address, the file transfer fails with a wide ranging variety of error messages from 'remote host not available' to spontaneous 'file transfer cancelled' etc. Using USB flash drive instead... Happy to send logs to dev (have offered to do so in past) to help solve frustrating proble. App was excellent but reliability has deteriorated over time.

While I use it only on macintoshes, I bought it very long ago, merely to support them, and have been extremely satisfied continuously since then!
