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.

Looks like MacUpdate just added Version 5 on December 10, almost a week after my last post. Thanks for the reply Softobe, I did finally get an email from you today, about the version 5 you released last month. The upgrade price is fair, but I have not yet upgraded because I'm evaluating Chronosync. I am not yet sure who will get my money this time.

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.

Why are you reviewing MacUpdate instead of the product?

My comment was appropriately labeled "Comment" (see box under my picture). MacUpdate usually does a wonderful job of timely version updates. Their lag on this one seemed uncharacteristic. In this case I see nothing out of order pointing that out in the event it was relevant to someone. A better question is why either of us would waste our valuable time on something so trivial that happened 16 months ago.

Yes, your comment was appropriately labeled except for two words, "Off Topic."
You wasted my time (and the time of others) with an off-topic comment on a product thread to which I came to learn something.
Next time you want to wave a "me too" at the forum, think about writing directly to the managers.

Let's then agree to disagree on what either of us consider relevant re off topic. Your entitled to your opinion. You haven't changed mine.

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.

The registration system in version 4.3 just requires to you fill with serial number and email. That's simple and fast.

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

In preferences, you can set it to ignore certain differences.

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.
