Synkron is a Qt application that allows you to sync folders. For example, a flash disk with a folder on your hard disk.

Main goals of Synkron:
  • Synchronise multiple folders
  • Analyse before sync
  • Tabs allow you to have more synchronisations running at once
  • Periodical synchronisations automatically sync your folders in selected intervals
  • Restore files, which were overwritten during the synchronisation
  • Add files and folders to black list to make sure they won't be synchronised in the future
  • Make schedules and backup using multisync

multi platform is a strong point plus it has portable apps.
Perfect app for the purpose, though I wish the mac apps UI to be "more apple".

This has been updated twice --- 1.6.1 and 1.6.2
1.6.2 is 64 bit.

The description fails to note one of the strong points --- that being multi-platform (Mac, Linux, and Win).

Check out the developer site.

A number of strategies have been devised over the years and I think I have tried them all. The problem is I never found one that 100% met and satisfied my requirements. IRecently I took a look at programs that were listed on MacUpdate ( www.macupdate.com ) and found a solution for doing backups that is fast , simple and does not rely on any cloud or other online assistance to accomplish the backup.

I had been using Apple Backup software in conjunction with MobileMe to store my backups. There were a could bottlenecks using this strategy that caused me some grief. When mobileMe was not available I could not upload my files I wanted to backup AND second the connection and processing was extremely slow.

I finally have found the “ ideal “ backup strategy for my iMac.

1. I use SuperDuper ( http://www.shirt-pocket.com/SuperDuper/SuperDuperDescription.html ) to accomplish a fully bootable backup of my hard drive. I do not include data folders such as spreadsheets, documents, pictures, movies,etc. ( They are covered in item #2 ). The SuperDuper backup is completed on a schedule at 3:33AM every night and takes approximately 40 minutes.
2. I use a “syncing” software to back up individual folders as needed. The software is Synkron ( www.synkron.sourceforge.net ) and is Freeware. Synkron is an application for folder synchronization that allows you to configure your synchronizations in detail. Synkron compares files just by their last modified dates.
3. I use an external hard drive to store my synchronized backup files on an as needed basis, scheduled backups can be made witin the program.

Synkron ( Freeware ) is a simple answer to a complex problem every computer owner has and does not want to admit it. Synkron cures the problem with no painful side effects, and you know backing up files is something you must do on a regular basis.

This app actually works.

Though I have not tested all its features and probably never will.
You see all I need is an app that will syncronize to folders, without deleting the contents of them both of course.
Considering how many apps I have tried, and who have failed miserably, I must reach the comclusion that it must be very difficult to design an app that does the seemingly simple task of syncronising two or more folders.
Up until now I been under the impression that it was quite simply impossible, everything is impossible until it is done!

Along came SYNKRON, and SYNKRON delivers were others fail entirely, SYNKRON would be standing on the shoulders of giants, if there were any giants to be found, but there are only midgets out there, and they quite simply just can´t carry the weight!!!
Trying would only lead to broken bones and possibly even worse injuries.

The score has to be the highest possible, quite simply because SYNKRON does what many have tried to do and have failed at, the pont being that there is no alternative to SYNKRON, well that is not entirely correct, the alternative to SYNKRON is manual labour!
