Out of synch...

Oops, pressing return did not result in a new line but a sent review. Lets try this again. I wish there was a better product. I got this because it promised PPC and Intel compatability. However using this is a pain, because once a sync fails - for whatever reason - you are in for a world of pain. Synctogether refuses to sync because there is leftover data. Synctogether refuses to quit because it thinks it is syncing even if it isnt.
You can reset this, but it still does not work as it should. Syncs fail for obscure reasons "check the history file for the reason", but the history fails just says, "Failed, check the history file for reason". One computer looks as if it is still syncing, but you cannot cancel the sync. The other computer looks like it is not synching, but refuses to quit because it "is synching".
At $50, this program is an insult, it feels and works like a $10 shareware from a beginning programmer. It worked for a while for me, but right now it is a maintenance nightmare. Until MarkSpace gets their act together - which I doubt they will - Avoid!

For what it's worth, deleting the contents of the "synctogether" folder in "Application support" seems to make the app work again... until a sync fails again of course. Uninstalling the app does NOT remove this folder! Uninstalling and reinstalling does not help, probably because of this.
