AutoVer v2.2.1

webfork on 2 Sep 2019
  • 1MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 28 Apr 2014
  • Suggested by I am Baas

AutoVer is a highly configurable automatic or real-time backup and personal versioning system. The program can be used as a simple copy/sync tool or as a more complex, transparent version control system (like a realtime incremental backup) where every time you save a file it is copied to your backup folder, drive or FTP server. Supports filters, compression and more.

Great for backing up/synchronizing your work or home documents to flash memory or saving every change you make to your text, source code, images etc.

Supports 64-bit.

@webfork, which issue? The empty directories or the ProgramData folder? I have 3 laptops running Win 10, 64bit and it's done the same on them all.

webfork on 2019-09-02 22:46

@hamasaki: the ProgramData issue. I'll add a note to the entry.

@webfork: No problem.

I have used SyncExp for years now and find it impossible to do without.
I do have a problem though. I would like either to turn off the automatic log file updating or somehow redirect the log file to another folder instead of the syncexp.exe folder.
Can anyone help?

Download link not working and appears to be dead for some time.

Last known link that worked for me today is on the Wayback Machine at Archive.org.

BlueFish File Mirror v1.8b

I am Baas on 13 Dec 2015
  • 577KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on
  • Suggested by I am Baas

BlueFish File Mirror monitors two identical folders (up to 100) and maintains any changes, copying to another root folder in real-time. Supports large file operations (over 4 gigs).

Limitations:

  • BlueFish can only mirror changes after it starts, so folders must be identical before running the program. Also, the BlueFish only monitors physical file changes, not attributes such as date, time, and read-only changes.
  • Does not support unicode path names

Note: this program is offline, switched download location to Softpedia.

Category:
Runs on:Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch Config.exe to configure program settings (writes to config.ini), then launch BlueFish.exe.
What's new?
  • Minor bug fixes. 
  • Fixes a bug in configurator which makes the excluded folders not be excluded.

I tried BlueFish on my laptop to keep the "My Documents" folder in sync with my main desktop computer and it does work nicely, although not in the way I thought it would.

I chose to monitor the "My Documents" folder on my Windows XP laptop and have it mirrored to the "Documents" folder on my desktop computer running Vista. BlueFish started by mirroring the entire folder structure containing the "My Documents" folder, so there was a new folder called "Documents and Settings" under the "Documents" folder on my Vista computer.

It would be nice to choose the My Documents folder to be the root folder rather than have BlueFish mirror the entire folder structure in which "Documents and Settings" is the root. I don't foresee this problem if the two computers being synchronized are both running the same version of Windows.

I don't mean to make such a long post and I'm not putting this program down as I do think it has potential. I'm going to see if I can find a workaround to sync my folders across two different operating systems.

@mike, if you're not scared of using a shell, I'd recommend robocopy. Has never failed me.

link to download and website appear dead?

Lupo Pensuite has it - but there's no way to tell if it really can ONLY do file changes or not.
I have a single database file I update and use at home & work (because of my poor memory...), it is 50mb+, so if I've got to copy it whole it is a huge time-waster.
Has anyone here gotten this to just copy changes into the destination file ?!?
Thanks.

webfork on 2013-01-30 00:08

@smallhagrid: I don't know if this program has that functionality - I'd look to FreeFileSync http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=1475 or Dsynchronize http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=719 here on the site.
