I have literally thousands of photographs! I work with them on my Drobo -- and back them up to the cloud. I recently purchased a RAID drive as an additional backup. Sync works perfectly to copy the files to the RAID. Thanks for a great program!!!

I've tried other sync pograms and can never figure out why they are so slow. Sync Folders is fast. The ability to just drag folders is great. There is a learning curve to soem of the messages, but the pprogram itself is easy to use.

I’ve been using AllWay Sync for PC for quite some time and now find myself using my MacBook. I was searching for a suitable file/folder sync for Mac, when I stumbled across Sync Folders. Not expecting much, I gave it a try. At first, it didn’t seem to do anything with two picture folders that I had, so I tried something a little different. I set up a dummy folder and performed a sync between the pictures and the dummy. It worked perfectly! The fact that it took about 2 minutes to make the folders the same was a bonus. I have a 5 TB external drive with many (MANY) duplicate folders that is just waiting for me to sync them and regain space. My new GoTo folder sync tool!

This site is going to the dogs (can you remember the old, good dayswhen it was VersionTracker?) Now also the 'comments are gone, so I must write a 'review' to tell that it's a shame (ANOTHER! of this site!) that we must go to apple store to download and apple stor is famous for 'randomly not working' (like iCloud and all what needs an apple ID that sometimes for months can't be connected but going directly on its site online!

Sync Folders: simple, fast, precise, light. I work on computers in different places and on portable external HD and for security reasons I cannot use the Cloud. Sync Folders allows me to keep my resident folders constantly updated and therefore to always have backups practically in real time.

Terrific program. I recently started using the mac for my full-time computer. I was searching for a way to keep my files backed up to multiple Storage devices. I've lost files before do to a hard drive crash and just don't want to have it happen again. This is taking all the worry out of backing up. My files are synced automatically and if something goes wrong I know everything Will be right there. Again I can't say how great this program is. Thank you!

Great Application - Does Exactly as it claims to do, but in a really and easy to manage way. I looked for many days for a software package that could keep my Music Folder on my Mac in Sync with my NAS Drive - for use with Sonos Setup at Home. Have tried numerous freeware software downloads that claim to be the best, only I would upgrade to full download if the trial software worked - none of them did - till now "Sync Folders" will handle your files &* folder quickly & simply, what more could you ask. I am going to pay the small upgrade fee to the Pro version only it offers some more useful functions I want to set up for me

I keep my code in git and was looking for a method to edit on my iPad the various images I need for my app. With Sync Folders I'm now able to sync only my images by using it as a middle-man between my code folder managed by git and some iCloud folder. Without Sync Folders I would have had to upload all my code to iCloud, a thing I wanted to avoid.

I have half a TB of photos on my Mac's internal HDD that are also backed up in iCloud. I have an external HDD for additional b/u that I also move between iMacs at our winter and main homes. Because I add/subtract image files frequently, I needed an app to effortlessly sync these folders. Sync Folders is the first one I tried, on the basis of reviews, and after starting to use it I decided I didn't need to look further. Great job, Vadim!

I have a website for my classes and have to use the university web server to publish it, but it is a pain in the posterior to back up the files manually; sometimes it is easier to access the university server and sometimes it is easier to access them directly on my computer with the backups. With Sync Folders I can make changes to either the server or the backup, whichever is more convenient for me, and they will stay in sync.

Very good for tailored hard drive coping. I make professional videoediting. I have several HD's where I store all the video clips and ”libraries” of the projects. The content of the hard drives is changing all the time. With sync folder I can easily clone and backup my videocontent hard drives and it is easy to manage if want to delete these files that are already copied to the backup drive but I have deleted from the source hard drive afterwards. Sync folders allows me to control whole coping process without making a copy from scratch every time (that would take a serious amount of time because HDs are 3-5TB each). Good and reliable product.

There a lot of solutions on the market and beyond it (in reference to the wide wild open source world that often does not care about markets and user base!) that offer synchronization solutions for any scenario imaginable. Sometimes choice can be a headache! I've come to know about Sync Folders because I use another product by this developer called Duplicate Manager Pro. There are significantly less really good de-duplication solutions, and I've chosen what I consider to be the best one. So, what I am getting at to is that Sync Folders is a good quality product and, from what I see, the developer cares about his apps and is passionate about them — the features that are found in the free edition of Sync Folders are often offered on paid–only basis in many apps of a similar nature. And all the apps by the developer GreenWorldSoft are already macOS High Sierra compatible! To summarize, Sync Folders is well made app that receives regular updates (even ahead of time!), and setting up synchronization of your digital stuff is fast and easy with this app. Well done GreenWorldSoft!

Yes, I use 3 macs: iMac-Main desktop; iMac Mini-backup I learned to have when my old Main failed for several days; MacBook Pro-my Old Main and still my goto travel companion. Yes, I do use iCloud for instant sync, but what happens when I must access a file and there is no Internet or Wifi? I will tell you what happens: I fuss and curse and stomp and worry! I tried manually copying important files from the Cloud to local drives, but I quickly ran into multiple copies of outdated documents and files, and drove myself crazy trying to manage them. Then I found Sync Folders, and it fits my style perfectly. Job done, and done well.

I needed to sync some documents across my desktop Mac and an external drive to make sure I could access them and retain copies. I just didn’t want the hassle of writing an Automator script and rsync to get the job done for each set of files or folders to sync. I happened upon this, tried it, and was immediately pleased with the outcome. It simply works without much fuss and did what I needed in keeping documents. Love it.

The app needs some deeper looking to use it correct, but when this is done it works really reliable. If you need more functions try the Pro or if you’re need a „Preview sync“ try „Compare & Sync Folders“ from the same dev. The 5th star I’d give the if the UI would be more modern and easier to understand.

Last week I was looking for some software to synchronize folders between my Mac and my QNAP NAS. After trying iDrive and QNAP's own QSync utilities (both of which had issues), I found Sync Folders and immediately loved it. It's simple, it does exactly what it says it's going to do, and best of all, it works! I'm now planning to try the additional sync modes in the Pro version and using the scheduling features.

By far this is the best back up solution for me, my need is pretty simple as I only need to make a mirror back up of one folder that contains all of my photos and videos (over 200 Gbs) to an external hard drive. I have try a bunch of different apps (was thinking of trying rsync and automator but seems too complicated for me) before I stop as this great Sync Folder app, back up speed is high and configuration is simple enough for normal user like me can use with ease. I reckon I would upgrade to pro version to back up all of my others data and from others's reviews, I reckon it worth it ($12.99 is weigh cheaper than other competitors). Highly recommend to ppl who need a good sync and back up solution!!

Объем большой, но все синхронизировалось без отключений дисков, без ошибок и без потерь.=))) Я доволен програмой=) P.S. Обязательно прочитайте про A<->B, A<+>B, перед тем как запускать синхронизацию . Я прочел вовремя ))) __ Started, pointed folders, read about modes A <-> B, A <+> B. Checked on the test folders, and began to synphize the photo. The volume is large, but everything was synchronized without disconnecting the disks, without errors and without loss. =))) I'm happy with the program =) P.S. Be sure to read about A <-> B, A <+> B, before starting the synchronization. I read it on time)))

An easy, comprehensive, configurable essential sync app for the Mac Trying to keep my files organised, backed up and up-to-date across two Macs, two Time Capsules and nine external disks used to be a chore. Not so anymore. This handy little app complements the macOS with the much needed ability to manually or automatically synchronizing folders. You can filter files and folders, add or subtract files (with a option to backup deleted files for your perusal), prevention of accidental deletion of all files, protection during copying, network protection, shell commands (for the more advanced users), comparison modes and comprehensive logging. This app takes care of everything by default, while leaving you in complete control should you so desire. A well done app, highly recommendable.

Discovered this app in the Mac App Store. Got tired of time machine and it’s bandwidth hogging. I keep almost all of my files on a second HD installed on my MacBookPro, so I can periodically wipe OS X. I use SyncFolders to backup this second drive to Time Capsule and it works great.

Really nifty little utility app. My design team works out of a network folder in office, for which I had to stay back until late in order to review the day's work. Now with Sync Folders Free, I simply copy them to my own laptop and review them at leisure at home without the fear that I might have overwritten an important document from the previous days!

LS, Recently bought a Nifty SD adapter for my Samsung micro SD card of 256 GB, to expand my original 256 GB from my apple Macbook. The backup of the macbook itself is done via the Apple Time Machine, but is does not include the backup of additional usb drives or SD cards. So I had a backup problem. Then I found the Sync folders app. I just used the sync folder app and it works great. all folders perfectly copied. I use it to back up my Nifty SD card of my apple macbook to my network drive. Backup problem of additional storage solved thank to Sync folders app. Groetjes, Loek

I used Sync Folders to copy a large collection music of files between two computers on a local network. Drag and drop using the finder seemed an obvious solution, but the transfer stopped after a long while. Restarting would result in duplicate files so I searched for a folder sync solution that could be restarted. This app fit the bill and worked flawlessly.

My children who are grades 4-7 use their iPads and our iMac heavily for school and playing around making movies. I use Sync Folders to put their creations on our home network so they can access their files from any device and have a backup in a folder they can’t lose. So with one program I can save iPad memory and have a backup for safe keeping.

The stupid file system of iCloud makes creating nested folders a nightmare - especially when Apple insist on grouping folders by application type. Dropbox on the other hand is completly flexible - albeit untrustworthy when it comes to data security. Worse still, apps like Microsoft Office won’t work with iCloud unless you take out an Office 365 subscription. So ultimately you end up using a mix of both Dropbox and iCloud drive to work on the move. Enter Sync Folders. When configured correctly, this nifty utility can sync changes between Dropbox and iCloud, making all your files available in both services at all times. If nothing else, it’s a great way for keeping two offsite backups of your most valuable data. Well played Vadim.

This is the only app I have been able to find that will perform a true bi-dirctional sync across folders on my system - automatically! By which I mean, the app is able to track DELETIONS, as well as additions and updates to files in each location, and sync both accordingly. Very impressive and a real time saver, with a good clean user interface too.

I found this app by mistake and I am glad that I did! I have been manually syncing files between 2 different Macs for years. Needless to say, the process was time consuming. With Sync Folders’ auto sync feature, I can plug in my external drive and forget about it. The app compares the files on my external drive with the files on my Mac in the background. Once complete, Sync Folders copies and deletes files on each device, making them exactly the same. I am able to perform the same easy process on my other Mac to create stress free sync between machines.

I really like the optional Sync Monitor feature that puts a small pop-up on my screen. It can stay on top of all other windows (or not) to monitor progress and is easily accessible from the menu bar. I also like how Sync Folders integrates the sync log into the app interface. I can view the full log for both folders or filter it showing only the changes.

After Miscrosoft had cut Onedrive’s free capacity from 30GB to 5 GB retroactively, I switched to Mac and do not trust cloud services anymore. However I need synchronize files between my Macbook Pro and Mac mini. Google search pointed me to SyncFolders app. The first impression is great. Application is neat and nice, very intuitive. It helps to keep uptodate file versions on both computers and my USB flash drive. SyncFolders works pretty fast (about 3-5 min for 10 GB of data via USB 3.0). The app has not experinced any crashes yet. Would highly recomend to anyone.

Based on good previous reviews, I chose to give Sync Folders a try. It was fast to set up, easy to configure, and seems quite robust. I like all the features.

I have used Sync Folders Free and find it to be a reliable solution for keeping a folder on my laptop synced to my thumb drive. This is very useful for my teaching. I look forward to using Sync Folders Pro to improve my ability to sync folders on laptop, mac mini server and thumbdrives.

I love using the Free version of Sync Folders for my Apple clients. For one, I use a Sagate Wireless Plus External drive for backups, instead of Time Machine. I use Sync Folders to wirelessly sync their laptops with the external drive, and it works like a bomb! 5Stars!

I downloaded Sync Folders Free yesterday and gave it a good trial where it passed with flying color. I tried both A <-> B and A <+> B after figuring out what the “-“ and “+” mean. The program is so intuitive that simply trying it out will help users master the software without having to read the instruction. I made a master folder on a USB key and a folder on my Mac. I started to fill these folders with both files and folders. Then I started to get them to be out of sync in order to see how Sync Folders Free work. I like it so much that I would like to try other software by the same company when I next have an opportunity. I highly recommend GreenWorldSoft.com AK.

I recently set up a Qnap NAS system, first time using such a device. I tried the Qsync function to back up my files from my Macbook to the NAS storage device but had trouble with file permissions and had to remove the app. I tried several other methods of copying the files but the file manage of the system would only copy the first 10000 files of each folder. I was trying to copy 1.1Tb of 200 000 photos over the last 5 years. It was stored in a different folder for each year, each with sub-folders for each month, and further sub-folders for each ‘event’ of that month. I found that the interface would only copy the first three months of each year. I then painstakingly copied one folder at a time over several days only to find that they all desappeared for some reason - possibly due to the Qsync app. I re-booted the NAS system, removed the Qsync app and eventually found the free version of Sync Folders and gave it a try. It worked flawlessly. Previously trying to copy files using Finder to the NAS was going to take 11 days. using the NAS interface took 14 hours originally. Using Synch Folders took about 5 hours in comparison and all of my folders were copied over and are still there a week later - very happy with the results!

I have spent the past couple of days with Sync Folders and I am extremely happy with it. I love being able to set-it-and-forget-it, but also to be able to quickly run a sync against two folders manually. I have already recommended it to several friends and family members. You can't go wrong with the free version to get started. I use Sync Folders along with ExpanDrive to keep my multiple clouds services in sync. It was exactly what I needed. I believe one reviewer said, “Get it, just get it.” I couldn’t agree more.

I downloaded this product in order to sync folders on my iMac to my MacBook Air. With over 400GB of files to keep in sync, Sync Folders works flawlessly. Be sure to read the instructions on the helpful website so that you understand which settings work for your needs. I’ve been using the product for over 6 months with no problems at all. I highly recommend Sync Folders.

Great app, i don’t need any sync client (Google Drive, Mega, iCloud Drive etc.) with my Airport Time Capsule on my Mac. I use like iCloud Drive with Auto Sync in everysecond. I choose desktop, documents and downloads in task. And really there is no need sync client. I can access with my iPhone and iPad. Thanks for great app.

Does just what I need it to. I need an app to keep some very large folders (my Lightroom catalog and photos and my Keynote slide shows) synchronized between my iMac and a portable hard drive. Sync Folders did the job quickly. The simple interface was perfect for my needs and let me get the job done without any hassles.

Automatic sync function is very useful, so user do not need a manual intervention. I mainly sync multiple folders of my media files in my MacBook with a NAS. So I can open my documents through any other laptop, iPhone etc. Moreover I keep a backup of my academic writings through syncing to a USB thumb drive with Sync Folders. The app keeps a detailed log of every sync, so user can check for errors, if any. Highly customizable sync for multiple folders in multiple drives. I’ve tried many other software, SyncFolders is far best solution for everyone who needs to sync folders no matter where they are.

I use a Pogoplug device and used to sync it to their cloud, but at the end of September, Pogoplug killed it’s cloud offering. The difficulty in syncing the files on my device to a cloud have been that the device is seen as a Network share. Most of the cloud apps won’t accept a network shared volume (or it’s folders), even with symlinks - so I was stuck. This app has given me a way to backup to my 1TB OneDrive account! I keep my cloud volume mounted on my desktop, and the files sync between my network share and my cloud in the background. it has a small CPU usage and RAM usage footprint, so it’s not interfering with my computer performance at all. I recommend this app, highly. My only reason for not giving it a FULL 5 stars is that I'd prefer a bit more online instructional documentation - but the developer has been VERY responsive to questions.

Just works fine… SImple to configure yet powerful. I have tried lots of apps to get synchronized my folders between mi MacBook and my MacMini, this one is the best. The interface is clean and runs OK also on MacOS 10.7 (Lion) as 10.10 (El Capitan).

Well done : sync files with a unicode filename I tried many sync applications found from internet. Sync Folders is the best one. Some other applications failed to sync files with a unicode filename, Sync Folders do it well. Thank you very much for making this application.

It is quite a fantastic app. I have tried to find an app to sync between my desktop files and my flash disk files. Goodsync is perfect but it is too expensive and most functions of Goodsync is useless for me. Sync Folders is just the app that I need. Sync between folder then I can sync my work files on my flash disk and my desktop files and it is easy to use and it is reliable.
