I've tried Dynamic Folders, and sadly, despite being a great idea, I've never been able to get it to work for me on any Mac I've owned.
It just appears to do pretty much nothing when I drop a file in a monitored folder. The log in the application shows it's noted a new file has arrived in the folders it's watching, but then nothing happens.
No email notifications, no SMS.
Bummer.

Further to my negative experience with DF, I've since been in touch with the developer and the issues I had were consistent with version 1.00.
I've since upgraded to the latest version and it now works perfectly bar a minor interface issue which they've advised will be fixed with the next 2 or so weeks.
I can now say this product works as expected and does so really well.
If like us you operate a server with client folders for sharing out work related material to clients, it's brilliant.

I've just tried Dynamic Folders and it really solves some of the most common problems associated with file sharing in workgroups:

-workflows: you can associate behaviours to your mac folders. For example, everytime a document that needs to be reviewed is copied in to a folder, dynamic folders can move/copy it automatically to another user's folder. The users can receive alerts by e-mail or sms when a new document arrives.

-Dynamic Folders makes real time backups of your documents. When a new document or a new version of a document is copied into a folder, a backup copy is made on the fly. This solves the problem of different versions of a document to be lost when someone overwrites it. All document versions are kept in a different folder.

-if you receive an email that you want to archive in your mac folders, just send it to a dynamic folders email account and if you specify the right folder it will be automatically stored in the right place.

This is not a Dropbox clone. it´s a completely different thing.

It´s a great app!

The description here and on their website is so vague and uninformative that I can't tell what merits this supposedly has.

If you want to share files among a group and keep them in sync, just use DropBox.

Free for only 2GB, which isn't much these days. One month for the cheapest Dropbox account is $9.99. So DynamicFolders @ $49 pays for itself in 5 months if you need to move some larger files and don't want file size restrictions.
And compare that to DeliverExpress Enterprise@ $299 and its a bargin.
