Save-N-Sync Harmonizes Data

Synchronizing files between systems or network folders is something all of us must do, but syncing today has changed little from its early days.

Synchronizing files between systems or network folders is something all of us must do, but syncing today has changed little from its early days.

Fortunately, a small company called Peer Software has found a way to do the job better. Using Peer Softwares Save-N-Sync 2.0, I was able to sync multiple folders, do bidirectional syncing and run syncs on a schedule.

I could also do real-time monitoring that synced files whenever they changed.

Like most syncing applications, however, Save-N-Sync lacked some of the advanced file comparison features that I wanted. Also, it doesnt show a report of changes that will be made before a sync runs. In these areas, it comes up well behind my personal favorite in syncing, FileWares FileSync shareware application.

Save-N-Sync prices start at $29 for a single standard edition and range to $449 for the corporate edition. For more information, go to www.peersoftware.com.
