Brazilian Portuguese issue: arRsync has a character set problem. If you copy a .txt file containing the word "ação 1" inside, to a NTFS-3g (MacFUSE) external HD, the word "ação 1" will turn into "a√ß√£o 1". I'm pretty sure that this problem could be solved by the command "rsync --iconv=utf8,iso88591". Unfortunately the frontend has no such option.

Wow. Simple, quick. I needed something that worked with 10.7. My old sync software wanted me to buy a new copy for $40, so I started looking around. rsync is a unix standard, but I didn't want to learn the command line. The fact that this is simple GUI for rsync is probably the reason it has stayed compatible for so long.

One of the reasons I like this package is that I can say specifically which files I want synced - most other software only had control at the folder level. I specific use was for a few particular files.

I am impressed with the speed with which rsync copied data from my old rappy NAS box to my iMac.

I was suspicious that my NAS was about to die but I think the problem was the way Mac was trying to copy files from SMB shared drive over the network.

rsync has started copying the data straight away while Mac used to keep showing the status message "Preparing to copy".

This is a real good software.

arRsync is exactly what you need to do a quick folder merge! Which is all I needed for a project. I have BBEdit for file merges, but for just a quick merge, i like this (for terminal jockey's, well, why are you reading this in a non-text-based browser anyway?j/k).
I haven't tried 'synctwofolders, but this just works. A little explanation of which parent folder to select would have been useful, but it only took one error to figure this out. for free, hard to beat.

This is a great little timesaver.. when iDisk 'gave up' after 2 days of uploading my iTunes Music, I used arRsync to copy the iTunes folder to a 16GB Flash Voyager. It (2.5GB) took almost no time!

Needless to say I use it to sync a number of other items. There should be a donate button somewhere for this 'must have'..

Despite the pre-release status, I rely on arRsync for my daily backups. It is fast, reliable und easy to use. I do not need more features.

Simple and free. That it uses the rsync utility within OS X and doesn't re-invent the wheel is smart. It doesn't provide access to all of rsync's functions, but as a pre-1.0 release, arRsync provides the basics to do easy push-button back-ups of your User folder to a second hard disk; something every Mac owner should be doing.

I would like to see a user manual added to explain what the available options do.

As useful as a backup solution between hard drives may be for some people. This is a very crippled cocoa wrapper for rsync if you can't specify a remote host.
