    This has been a must-install app for me for many years. I am surprised at how underrated it is. I often recommend this for simple easy backup and sync. It's far more stable than the Finder for folders of several thousand items. I have this set up to backup and sync folders from my work drive to my archive drive.

    I've been waiting for a 64-bit Catalina-compatible version of this software, or maybe switching to Chronosync. I just visited the Softobe site and apparently they released a 64-bit Catalina-tested Version 5 back on November 25, but here, MacUpdate still lists version 4.3.1 as the current version. Time to update the MacUpdate listing, otherwise I'd like suggestions on which website to use to track non-App-Store updates. Because recently, MacUpdate has also been late listing other new versions, even for applications from major companies like Adobe.

    I like FS a lot. I use it for many years. It will be very cool, if the developer will add an Windows (portable) version, because I have different "workstations" and not only Macs. For this behavior I use Synkron at the moment… But FoldersSynchronizer is still smarter and I would like to use only one software.

    I have been using this for years to sync between my mac at work and home via a 64gb usb stick. Now I am on mountain lion and it seems not to save the preferences, it keeps the multiple backup but sometimes forgets I set it to "show preview" and "don't ask confirmation". Occasionally ask me to run as root. Other than that, it's very fast fast now. I tried a few other sync software and, for my needs, this is still the best and easiest to use. Only orther minor problem, if you go to the softobe website and click the link "support" (I did for the issue above) you are directed to the link "startup"...

    Crap software, and perhaps the most idiotic registration process every seen. Don't buy this. It's slow, it's registration process is uniquely poor, and it's nowhere near worth the money. It lives off one positive review from many years back. You've been warned.

    One problem. When you use this software to sync between two folders or drive. If you travel and change time zone. It will resync all files and take me 7 hours to complete. When yoiu come back to your homw time zone, and time zone change again, it will resynce the whole files again. And it took me another 7 hours Other than this, it work OK

    Once set up, this is just perfect for straight syncing of files between a Mac and a windows server. It would be excellent if Mac to Mac copying of metadata could improve and if archiving was enabled.

    I've been using FolderSynchronizer since March 16, 2000. It's so easy to use, I have it set up for multiple tasks. From syncing my iMac to my MacBookPro to using it for backing up my Androind. Sometimes if I have a ton of stuff to copy to a different server on the network, instead of draggin each folder or file by hand I just open FS, put everything I'm going to move in a Multiple list, set my destination and run a one-time backup and I don't even have to think about it. I can't think of a downside except that in version 3 I had to memorize what M F X Y V & S meant. I guess that's my own fault. And I see from the new product photos that with this new version I won't have to remember anymore since Multiple, Filters, Exclude, Conflicts, Volumes & Settings are written out. Really looking forward to trying out this newest version

    Downloaded FoldersSyncronizer and thus far have found it to be excellent. Quick to set up, fast to sync. Not sure what the difficulties people are writing about are. And - the support has been very responsive.

    Hi. I added the following error message in the field of troubleshooting, but I have the feeling that this rubric not really in front of the most visitors. Therefore I replay my message here: [ I'm using FS 4.0.4 under 10.6.7 to made an exact sync between two external disk drives (FAT32) and therefor I 've notice the following error entry in the log file: FS doesn't sync files if they are bigger then 4 GB or greater! I hope the developer could help as soon as possible, because I think it is a bug in version 4, isnt' it?!? ] Otherwise the program is a great utility and I use it for years. Additionally the contact possibilities should been better. Unfortunately I found no hints to contact the developer direct by e-mail..... Thanks for listening.

    This is a must have utility for me. Simple yet powerful. Good for back ups and keeping multiple folders and hard disks synchronized. This upgrade is well worth the $12 price.

    I have been fairly happy with FS for a long time. Today I went to their site and noticed that the current edition is 3.6.3 and I had DL 3.6.4 from here. I also noticed that one of the features mentioned in 3.6.3 is not in the program. Someone here mentioned they had written the developer and never got a reply so I don't have much hope of getting my questions answered it seems. Too bad, still a pretty decent program. keith
