it's a MUST-HAVE tool for keeping files and folders in sync as well as
powerful insurance against loss of valuable data. Whether you're
trying to keep files and folders organized on a desktop computer, performing
regular backups onto removable disks, synchronizing rapidly-changing laptop
data with your main computer, or doing network administration file maintenance,
FolderMatch offers one-button folder
synchronization for the casual user, and a full range of sophisticated
tools for the power user.
When comparing folders and
their associated sub-folders, FolderMatch
uses side-by-side screens to show the file matches and mismatches. Drag
and drop operations are supported between the screens. Using FolderMatch's
context (right-click) menu, you can easily view, edit, move, copy, recycle,
and delete files. If you're not sure what a file contains, you can load
it into its associated program to view it. When comparing individual files,
uses line numbers and highlighting to show all of the differences between
lets you compare files five different ways, from the basic comparison of
file size and date/time, to the advanced 160-bit Secure Hash Algorithm
(SHA) method. The program can even ignore Daylight Savings Time, and FAT/NTFS
time differences of up to two seconds, when comparing files. Advanced
users can create pattern lists of files and folders to include and exclude
from the comparison.
offers one-button folder synchronization. You can synchronize folders
in seven different pre-defined ways, including replacing older files with
the newer files from the other folder, moving orphan files from folder
to folder, making one folder a mirror image of the other, or performing
a bi-directional replacement of older and orphan files. You can even define
custom synchronization criteria for ensuring that your folders are up to
date, and properly backed up.
Who can benefit fromFolderMatch?
who maintains multiple copies of files or folders:
With users working at multiple
locations, it's hard to keep all of the
computers current with the
latest files and data. Files may change several times a day. How is the
work coordinated on all of the various computers, making sure that all
systems contain the most recent versions of all of the files? FolderMatch
solves this problem. It even gives you the ability to examine the differences
between Microsoft Word documents!
Whenever there are duplicate
copies of files/folders across a network, there is always a risk that they
may be out of sync. FolderMatch can
eliminate this risk. No more painful inspections for missing files when
setting up directories or applying file updates.
A common task for people
working with CD duplication and replication is the verification that the
image mastered is the same as the result of the
duplication. A tool that
can compare files down to the byte level is
offers several byte-level comparison options - from
the industry-standard CRC
to the advanced 160-bit Secure Hash Algorithm.
Do you have backups of your
backups? Having a backup copy of a critical file can be a real lifesaver
when your hard drive crashes or when your dog uses your floppy disk as
a chew toy. FolderMatch can help you
manage all of your backups.
