File Synchronization is an utility that, as its name implies, has the ability to synchronize multiple pairs of folders or files. It has been designed to be easy to use and quick to do the job. It was based originally on the File Synchronization tool provided by Apple with the old Mac OS, but has a few improvements and features to help get the job done quickly and efficiently.

-Automatically mounts remote volumes when needed.
-Preview mode lets you "see" what will happen.
-Optional logging of all operations.
-Multithreaded for smooth operation even when copying hundreds of megabytes.
-No document to open or manage: all files and folders and their settings are automatically saved and accessible through the main window.
-Automatic synchronization: you select the interval and the pairs and File Synchronization will synchronize them repeatedly according to the time interval.
-Option to move orphaned files to the trash instead of deleting them.
-Option to keep orphaned files that have been modified since the last synchronization.
-Option to delete unwanted files from the preview window.
-Option to rearrange the list of pairs of files/folders.
-Error reporting can offer possible solutions to common problems and displays additional information regarding any error occuring
-2 license types to meet your need: a single-user license, good for a user on any Macintosh, and a computer license, good for all users on a specific Macintosh
-Easy to use preference window.
-Automatically adjusts for the Blue or Graphite appearance.
-Very fast! One of the fastest tool available.
-The most affordable tool to synchronize. Why paying $30 or $100 when you can have File Synchronization for only $9?
-Based on Cocoa, automatically gets new enhancements introduced with new version of Mac OS X.

-Fixed a problem where the automatic synchronization wouldn't start after the specified time interval, after launching File Synchronization
-Fixed a problem where file sizes and specially folder sizes wouldn't be properly reported in the preview window
-Fixed a problem that would prevent File Synchronization to run properly under Mac OS X, version 10.1.x
