This is a reply to TOM.25. I can't figure out how reply directly to him.

I can guarantee the files are identical. They were copies made just minutes before I tested SynchTwoFolders.

My remarks about the language weren't meant to criticize your English, and I appreciate your effort to translate. However, for me, a native English speaker, some of the language was very awkwardly worded.

"Source up Target" would be a good example. I've read the tool tip half a dozen times and I'm still not sure exactly what "Source up Target" means.

I think it means that the target folder will be updated with all new and modified files, but no files will be deleted. But it's not clear.

The speed of the program was fine.

Again, thanks for your efforts. I hope you continue to update SynchTwoFolders for those of us with PPC Macs.

p.s. I can provide you with specifics if you want, but I'm not sure how to get you my email address.

Following is my brief experience with SynchTwoFolders. Please note that I'm using the PPC version.

I love the idea of this program. So I downloaded it and ran a test.

I made a copy of my work folder, then added one file and modified another in the original folder. I then ran a simulated synch, using the original folder as the "source."

SynchTwoFolders correctly identified the two files that needed to replaced. However, it also identified four other files as needing to be replaced for reasons I don't understand. The identified files are identical in creation and modification dates, and haven't even been opened in several years.

This is obviously not acceptable.

Also, I don't know if the devlopers are native English speakers, but the language they use is confusing to put it mildly.

Finally, the results window is very hard to read.

So my search for a simple, cheap program that will reliably synch two folders goes on.

Doesn't work with Safari 3.1. I really wish this would be updated, I really need that unclose last tab function.

Seems to work well, but how do you open more than one "instnace" of the widget? When I try to install again, it replaces the copy of the widget already there.

Thank you Andreas Amann, that worked perfectly. I didn't know you could drag widgets.

This thing has potential but is nowhere near ready for prime time. It has weird quirks all over the place. Scheduling is difficult and unintuitive. Interface is inconsistent, to put it nicely. Last time I quit the program, the radio station continued to play on my computer for another three minutes.

And lots more. I'd avoid it until they do a major revamp.

How the hell do you uninstall this piece of crap?

Scenario poker is barely acceptable. The screen is too small to see easily, it's difficult to tell who's betting and response to button clicks is sluggish at best. Besides that, other players never bluff (it's easy to tell when someone's gotten a pair) and don't seem to respond to bluffs.

If you've really got to play and you've got nothing else, give it a try.

Download Spotlaser. Enter search term(s) and paremeters. Initiate search. Watch it do nothing.

Complete waste of time.
