I had manually transferred files from an older laptop to a new one. Then a few days later I discovered that only 1/3 of my documents had actually made it through. In the meantime I had updated some documents in the new laptop.It was a mess.

I needed to repeat the transfer but I didn't want to overwrite the documents I had updated.

First I tried the program "compare folders". After running for 20-30 min it crashed. Then I tried Sync!Sync!Sync! and it performed beautifully. It was fast and it gave me a preview of what was missing from the new computer and what was new.

I was able to add the missing files without overwriting the updated ones in a few minutes. Thank you.
PS: Spend a minute to read the manual. It's just one page.

Cyberduck is fine except for one thing. It chokes on file names that don't use A-Z 0-9 characters. Upload a file or folder with an extra "space " in the end, then try to delete it.

This would be a great application except it doesn't handle nested directories (folders/subfolders). Or rather it handles them in an idiotic way.

When you drop a directory tree on ThumbsUp instead of asking you if you want to overwrite it or if you want a resized copy somewhere else in your computer it creates a subfolder inside every one of the original subfolders and calls them all "resized".

If you want a resized copy of the original directory tree you have to move and rename each one of the "resized" folders.

If all your images are in ONE folder without subfolders it works fine. You only have to rename that one folder.

This was the absolutely best photo resizing software in the world for support people to give to newbs.

Not that it was hard to configure but once configured you could generate a droplet, give the droplet to a newb and say "just drop your images or folders (with or without subfolders) of images to the application icon and you are done".

It required zero effort.

Why do I speak about it in the past tense? The developer stopped developing it. It broke somewhere around OsX 10.5. The developer's website is no longer there, he doesn't answer any email. He's like the Thomas Pynchon of Mac software.

I wish someone else would rewrite this app. I wouldn't mind paying for it as long as the droplets were free to distribute (like YummyFTP)

You'll say there are a billion image resize applications out there. True. But none of them are as good. They all suffer from one or more of the following:
- Can only handle images, not folders and folder trees.
- Require extensive configuration
- Can't save a certain configuration and distribute it
- Don't make droplets
- Cost money.

Again, I wouldn't mind paying up to $100 for the droplet making app, I just want the droplets to be free.

Automator? Apple Script? For some reason they don't "travel" well. What works on my computer doesn't necessarily work on others.
