Keep multiple pairs of folders in sync.

Overview

Folder Sync 2 Compare pairs of folders and display differences using colour coding. After comparing, choose to automatically sync the folders or manually manipulate the files (copy, move, rename or delete) directly within the Folder Sync window.

Not fair to give a starred review of any rating when you haven't used the product. Instead leave a comment.

How am I supposed to give it a try? What a stupid policy to allow buying via AppStore only?

Me too. Looks like something I would use. But no free trial first ?? SORRY not for me then. Will just have to put the $9 back in MY pocket again . . . if the developer doesn't provide for free trial, does that mean he (she) does not have confidence in the product ??

It does not have ay kind of database to keep track of the changes, so Folder Sync cannot detect if the deletion of a file/folder is the action to be propagated or not. So, although it's not bad for what it does, unfortunately there's no way of doing real 2-way sync. And, for me, that's something that a real sync program need to be able to do.

It looks a bit DOS-ey too, no? Not very Mac-like.
