    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 :-(

    Interesting tool!! Other than this, One of the interesting tools that I found recently is DuplicateFilesDeleter.It is tool that can be used to find & remove duplicate files.It is a simple to use,but very effective tool to locate duplicate files in one or more selected search paths.It scans the files and compares them based on Byte for Byte Comparison, which ensures 100% accuracy. You can then choose to delete the selected duplicate or original files. The program is multi-threaded which enhances the performance immensely & performs scans very quickly.Worth trying.

    I tried 3 or 4 software before using Synkron. Synkron was much better than the others but it lacks one of the most basic feature: AUTORUN AT WINDOWS STARTUP. You know that restarting windows is very common so, I normally forget to run this software therefore synchronizations are missing.
