Sync Folders Pro is an easy-to-use app for beginners, has the ability to fine-tune synchronization settings for the most exacting professionals.

Sync Folders Pro is perfect for backups to external storage devices including:
USB, memory cards, disks on remote computers within your network, folders on Cloud services (Dropbox, etc.) With each re-backup, the app finds and copies only new files and new file versions, thereby reducing backup time and extending the life of your storage devices.

The app can synchronize multiple pairs of folders at the same time "on the fly" using our "REAL TIME SYNC" technology, on a schedule or manually. The Sync Folders Pro also provides robust tools to filter files and folders so that you sync exactly what you want.

Do you have terabytes (TB) of data to sync? No problem! Sync Folders Pro has been optimized to work with extremely large number of files. Sit back and relax, your data is being automatically synced!

The app supports bidirectional synchronization!

tres utile !!!

Super application !!! un petit bijou méconnu mais qui mérite de l’être.

Works like a charm

The app works very fast in scanning folders and syncing. It lets you configure lots of ways of syncing regarding exceptions, folders, directions, etc. For me, it lets me automatically have the latest version of each file stored in my NAS or my laptop. I’ve had no problems (except my mistakes in configuration!) since I started using it a year ago.

Really useful for my needs

I bought it for 2 main reasons : - Synchronisation between my NAS and my other hard disks - But mainly, when I’m travelling, between my SD cards and 2 external disks to avoid any risk of losses. Before using this software, I had some problems causing a loss of information. Never after the use of Sync Folders Pro. The software is really not expensive and provide many options.

Very useful - Super pratique

Great piece of software. Fast and very easy to use. Super application. Très rapide et très facile d’utilisation.

Sehr stabil und funktionell! Bisher beste Sync-App auf OSX

Ich nutzte Sync Folders Pro und meine Daten zwischen 3 MACx und einem NAS im Heimnetz synchron zu halten. Funktioniert einwandfrei. Sehr stabil. Die Oberfläche könnte etwas übersichlicher sein, die vielen Funktionen schrecken ggf. etwas ab. Die Doku und der Suppurt sind aber hervorragend. Wünsche für die Zukunft: Ordner und DateiFilter per Diaglogbox und nicht mehr manueller Eingabe; Oberfläche etwas aufräumen und auf das wesentliche reduzieren, die Feineinstellungen können gerne in tiefere Untermenüs wandern. Insgesamt ist die App jeden cent wert!

funktioniert nicht für mich

sync zwischen mac und einem qnap nas funktioniert nicht zuverlässig mit vielen dateien. ich wollte meine bilder synchronisieren - leider fehlen immer verschiedenste dateien. manchmal geht gar kein sync.


Ich nutze die App regelmäßig. Alle Daten werden entsprechend den Eingaben zwischen Macbook und iMac synchronisiert. Unverzichtbares Tool!
