Why make a GUI if you have to type in path names? The author(s) must be living on another planet. It probably would be nice, otherwise. But I'm not going to type in path names to find out.

Rsync helped me backup two document archives to one folder and keeping them all in sync. Versions since 2.0 now have nice interface that now helps you choose source and destination.

RsyncX has encountered an error. (code 1) very cool. What is code 1? Nobody knows. That's to open source for me.

Great application, but apparently it's no longer supported. The link doesn't work (only takes you to the developer's page), and there is no link on the developer's page. Too bad... nice program. I'll miss it...

With version 2.1 I think they nailed it. Personally, I would love more Apps like this; a nice GUI that is intelligently organized, with the command line tools available for when you need them. There is some validity to the claims that typing in a file path is not very GUI-like. It would be good to see drag-and-drop implemented there. Instructions would be my next priority too, but even as it is now, I prefer this over all the other options I have tried. I had my backup done and boot-able within a few minutes of downloading the application. This has become my new favorite Mac OSX application!

As of v2.1, every field that can be drag and drop is. Give it a try!

Version 2 is a very useful update to the previous version 1.7d. Though RsyncX 2 does not seem compatible older 1.x versions of itself, it *is* now compatible with "regular" unix (freebsd, linux) versions of rsync. And the GUI has been much extended, though I prefer the commandline version myself.

Works as advertised. Very useful to back up multiple Macs to a Mac server, for instance. No problems whatsover.

it REPLACES the standard system rsync with his own "special" rsync - which is not approved by the official rsync distribution. a sane person would leave the original rsync untouched, and put in a the new one someplace else.
