    I've been using synkron for several years on Debian 7 Wheezy and Ubuntu 12.04 Precise. Works great, it is extremely stable and reliable. Thanks for such great software! It has a minor issue with deleted files, it restores deleted files when the deletion should be propagated -- but I can get around to that.

    Synkron (1.6.2) NOT WORKING on Mavericks for one-way sync. The program restores files I've deleted from my master folder, so now I have to manually go back and re-delete a lot of files I removed a long time ago. I've tried all settings including "Do not modify the contents of this folder", which does NOT work. It's a good program otherwise. A real shame.

    Unfortunately doesn't work well with W8. During synchronising it restores the freshly deleted files instead of deleting them at the parent directory. The same problem emerges during renaming (the file with the old name is copied back and the file with new name is copied to the destination folder, resulting in two identical files with different names at both location). It makes a huge mass... This is why I stopped using it... Anyway thank's for the effort

    When it works, it's great but if it goes wrong, it leave a BIG mess to clean up. I use Synkron on a Macbook Pro running OSX 10.7.5. Today things went very wrong. Before I synchronised I checked what Synkron was going to do using the analyse button. Happy with what it showed it was going to do, I synchronised. BANG - BIG MESS. Synkron ignored the flagged "replicate deletions" option and synchronised both source and targets resulting in files I had deleted ages ago reappearing on my laptop. It took me a long time to clean up the mess. Not being sure why this had happened, I uninstalled Synkron for good using App Cleaner. But what a surprise when a day later Backup Loupe showed that Time Machine had backed up over 75 GB of data when the norm is 5 GB at most. The culprit was a hidden 70 GB file called ".Synkron" in my home folder, taking up free space on my Macbook and the Time Machine external drive, which I immediately deleted from both locations. I do not understand why Synkron needs to create a huge file, containing actual files being scynchronised, when file meta data should be enough. I hope this helps developers improve the application and users to be aware of what might go wrong. An alternative is use Automator (part of OSX), there's a very useful guide to building a file synchronise workflow on the net, I can't give you the URL as it's forbidden by this site :-(
