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!

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.

If you already depend on rsync to transfer files to and from a non-OSX box (ie BSD, etc), don't use it. It screws up rsync from the command line. I jus transferred from files from my Mac up to a client's site. They are zero byte files. Joy. Unfortunately, there is no help or link provided anywhere in the GUI. So, instead of spending .3 seconds updating a one file change, I get to spend the afternoon trying to figure out how to back out of this. Even if this was a gorgeous, wonderful app, there should still be an easy way to unintall, or at least information HOW to do it.

I don't understand why rsyncd for X doesn't put the resource fork in a ._file the way the Finder (and ditto) does when you copy a file to a non-HFS volume. Then (a) when you mounted the non-hfs volume things would just work, and (b) syncing to non-OS-X rsyncs would be a nonissue.

Does not have any documentation on how to restore something that has been backed up. This is just idiocy, guys. Also, it cannot back up to any machine that isn't mac os X (i.e., an internet server).

Steve the app is a frontend for the rsync unix command which is standard installed on OS X (by Developer Tools? don't know) I know it doesn't look nice, but it does the job. After all rsync is so feature-rich and powerful, that Retrospect looks like a toy :-) TLM

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.
