smaragdus indicated in comments that he was concerned about the Folder Sync program. I can confirm that the program has changed names (foldersynch:

... but I don't have any data on the rest of it. If the dev's doing a bunch of shenanagans, should we add a disclaimer to the entry? Take it down?

It is called Folder Sync since at least April 2011... https://web.archive.org/web/20110405202 ... FolderSync

Tested FolderSyncWpf.exe v1.0.0 build 205: Portable

WPF = Windows Presentation Foundation... indicating that the application switched from winforms to wpf.

ScanFS now requires the .net framework 4 to run.

The manual installation also includes ScanFs.pdb which I did not figure out yet what it is needed for. The application seems to run fine without it.

ScanFS calls home (autocheck for updates?).

Maybe this is the reason:
Microsoft wrote:A program database (PDB) file holds debugging and project state information that allows incremental linking of a Debug configuration of your program. A PDB file is created when you compile a C/C++ program with /ZI or /Zi or a Visual Basic/C#/JScript .NET program with /debug.

Indeed. PDB files are almost useless for end users. Programmers, on the other hand, need them for debugging.

ScanFS is ad-ware:

More, Disk catalog mode is locked in the HOME EDITION, which means that besides ad-ware, ScanFS is also a demo. Please, vote it down.

I don't really care about the ads (although the author should be open about that), but I can't test the Disk Cataloging mode, even if in Evaluation mode. This really bothers me, because it is advertised as having such capabilities! Maybe it's just a "slip" from the author, whom I consider a nice person.

I'll add a note to the entry. I don't see any non-redistribution license restrictions (I don't see any license at all) so if anyone has a copy of the previous version, I'd be happy to switch.

Amusingly the ad server for this program appears to have gone offline:

If you read back through this thread, there have been a lot of problems with the ScanFS program but it's still online. A new version came out but the changelog is empty and the program is now distributed in a password-protected ZIP, which to me is unacceptable. I get that this is supposed to get around virus false-positive complaints, but I don't think our site visitors are going to go anywhere near that.

I'm recommending we take the entry offline once and for all.
