File and Directory Synching Software – some are completely freeDecember 12, 2012 / by Marco / Categories : Free, Technology
How do you synchronise files and folders on your computer or from your computer to a USB stick?
Here’s your answer, it’s an open source application called DirSync… it’s completely free.
DirSync Pro – free
DirSync Pro (Directory Synchronize Pro) is a small, but powerful utility for file and folder synchronization. DirSync Pro can be used to synchronize the content of one or many folders recursively.
Using DirSync Pro you can make incremental backups. In this way you’ll spare lots of time because you don’t have to copy all the files each time you want to update your backup; only new/modified/larger files would be copied.
Use DirSync Pro to easily synchronize files from your desktop PC to your USB-stick (PDA, Notebook, …). Use this USB-stick (PDA, Notebook, …) to synchronize files to another desktop PC.
Unlike many other synchronization software, DirSync Pro is Open Source; it is 100% free of charge, 100% free of commercial text, 100% free of advertisements and 100% free of spyware. You can use it as long as you like, without any limitations in time or funcationality. You can freely distribute it according to GPL3.
DirSync Pro is programmed completely in platform independent Java™ so it can be run under nearly every modern operating system including Windows™, Linux™ and Macintosh™.
DirSync Pro has a user-friendly User Interface which helps you configure many options to your needs. You can use DirSync Pro also through the command line which makes it very flexible for running in batches.
DirSync Pro has a powerful schedule engine which lets you schedule synchronization tasks on many different ways, minutely, hourly, daily, weekly and monthly. Advanced users may use tons of options available in DirSync Pro to suit the synchronization behavior in details. DirSync Pro has many logging facilities which let you create detailed logs even per job.
Directory Compare and Synchronize compares two directories and their subdirectories on any local, network or floppy drives.
This program has many features including synchronization, copying, deleting and renaming files. All changes and previous actions can be restored including all previous synchronizations.
You can limit or expand your search capabilities by wildcards (example- *.gif;*.jpg), file size and dates, include subdirectories, comparison of matching or non-matching file properties and more.
This program is also equipped with multiple reporting tools including reports of all previous comparisons and synchronizations.
