I have been using Syncovery for a few years now (originally in its former incarnation as Super Flexible File Synchronizer) to syncronize folders between three Macs (home, office, laptop). I previously used some command-line rsync aliases for this. Syncovery not only simplified my synchronization tasks by providing a GUI where I could keep a collection of recurring sync jobs; it also provides capabilities beyond what I could handle with rsync, such as interactive editing of the synced file list (including reversing sync direction for selected files), the ability to delete files on each side of the sync (again, interactively), and good automatic discovery of renames and folder moves.

Syncovery is a cross-platform app, and as such doesn't have the snazziest, most Mac-friendly interface. But it's become one of my most-used and most-appreciated tools. Every few months, when I come across a peculiar sync task, I end up discovering Syncovery has it covered (though not always in an obvious way).

Several times I've had to email the developer to figure out how to do something or how to speed up a sync. I've always gotten a quick and helpful response, even when a solution involved having to inspect long file logs. Better documentation would have probably saved some of those emails, but the developer does provide solid support.

Highly recommended if you need to do a lot of targeted syncing.
