I was looking for a simple folder synchronizer this afternoon, and this one showed up as a new update in today's MacUpdate. I immediately download it and fire up the app, it worked as advertised. Very useful if you look for a simple folder merger to sync two folders mixed with both new and old downloads.

This a fairly nice app, but the app's website says you need the "Zx_External" in the same folder in order to sync things. But you can't download the "Zx_External"! It pops up a login dialogue box requesting a user name and password to download. Or am I missing something?

You tried to download the source code, download the application.

Ah! I was confused by the wording on the website. Ok then, very good. I thought I was missing features because the Zx_External wasn't in the same folder as the app.

Oh, if it only could have a scheduling option and can manage more than one task at time :-)

I don't use this function but last time I tested it it worked. Open the Batch window (small button with a boat wheel) and you will se there the settings you saved (to save settings, click the + button near the PopupMenu "Last settings"). In the Batch window you can check the settings you want to launch.

Does not work well with 10.14.3. Copies but can't see the time line as the spinning rainbow of death is constantly on. When I came back the computer was asleep and I had to shut down the app to see what was going on so it does not alert when finished. You have to run another simulation.

The app hang (spinning rainbow ball) when it copy large file (or large folder if only present in Source or Target but not in the two), maybe is it your case ? You can try open additional settings (small button at the bottom left) and choose "use AppleScript Finder" to copy, in this case you should see the Finder copy window.

This product only allows me to run a simulation not an actual job, any reason why?

Will the APP work for keeping two Directories/Folders in sync? I have my photos in one Directories/Folders that is on a drive with a large structure of photos with dated Directories/Folders. What I want is like a back up of a copy of the 2 that are identical to each other. Will this do the trick? Thanks

Yes, if I well understood what you asked the app will do the job. Select your first folder as Source, your backup folder as Target. Then select RadioButton "Source replace Target". The result will be the same as if you deleted your Target folder and copied your Source folder. Except the app will only copy new and modified files, and delete files which no more exist in Source. Files in the two folders (Source and Target) with same modification date won't be affected (they stay as they are)..

This has been my go to app for years, but as another mentioned, now it simply does not work: High Sierra. I've sent donations to the author, as his work is appreciated. I can only hope he continues to maintain this fine program? IF he does, I'll send him another $5.00. If more people did, the incentive might mean a 2.3 version update, continuing the legacy. My personal thanks one way or the other.

IT may be working once more for me. Curious, but it wasn't before? I'll update this ASAP if it turns out to function as it once did. Sure am happy it does, a very useful tool!

Currently running OS X version: 10.13.3 (17D102)

Simple to configure and versatile app that does a really great job. It's free but well worth a couple of $ to support the developer!

Loved this application. Although the latest update (v2.2.3) hangs upon launch on my mac running OS 10.11.6, rendering it impossible to use. 3 stars for previous positive history.

Great app, especially for free. I am going to donate $20. Using it to sync two very large music folders on different Macs over my network and it does the job well. Simulation mode is a good idea if you are unsure. Good job!

A little oversight in SyncTwoFolders: it doesn't check inside packages, so if the dates of the packages are the same but the contents have changed it won't sync them (it happens in Scrivener's files and probably others...)

If you click the CheckMark button at the bottom left you will open a additional settings windows. Uncheck "manage those folders as package".
