  • Released on 14 Oct 2018
  • Suggested by milentechie

DSynchronize lets you copy, move, or synchronize folders on your computer or over a network. The program can sync in both directions, making both folders up-to-date with the latest data, do realtime sync where any changes copied to destination and even verify it's transfers. The program can schedule operations, add timestamps to the destination folder and keep multiple backups (iterations).

If in use, the program can even eject a USB device when an operation is complete.

Latest version of DSynchronize (2.30.9) fails to run on my system (Windows 8.1 x64)- it opens and exits almost immediately. This never happened with any version prior to 2.30.9. I contacted the developer but haven't got any response so far. If he had responded I would have provided him with the dump files.

Thanks for trying. Dsyncronize has been a reliable program and the developer has been fairly active over the years. I hope he gets back to you.

Maybe I misunderstood "synchronize"? If I have a and a , I want the destination folder/tree to mirror the source. This doesn't do that.
I thought I'd use this to maintain a second copy of my digital music collection, but when I did a bunch of tagging and renaming, and use this, the destination files were not renamed. I don't expect a utility to detect if the content has changed -- I just wanted (and want going forward) my "backup" to be exactly like the original -- with extra files and folders gone, and new ones copied. This requires a "utility" because much of the change to the source involves cleaning up filenames, so drag-n-drop produces two (or more) "copies" of the same songs in the backup.

WinDataReflector v1.8.1.1 Updated

billon on 5 Sep 2018
  • 11MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 6 Nov 2017
  • Suggested by I am Baas

WinDataReflector is a lightweight file synchronization and backup tool. It combines rapid file comparison and fast transfer algorithms into a simple and clear interface, offering a visual comparison of files and folders before synchronization / backup. It supports two-way synchronization and customizable rules.

The program can run operations in the background while you configure new ones in a separate tab.

Note: Linking to an older version (thanks smaragdus) as the latest "free" version cannot be used to synchronize more than 150 files, create more than 3 tasks or use automation (realtime, USB detection, scheduler).

I downloaded version 2.0.0 thinking it was 100% freeware, but the free version can not be used to sync more than 150 files, create more than 3 tasks or use automation.

Well that sure SUX, I don't understand why they put stuff in freeware and then hobble it so it can't really be used efficiently. Its like offering you a free sandwich with no bread, just doesn't make any sense. I don't even waste my time on this kinda stuff, as soon as I find out its so limited in what you can do I bail. That's why the comment section is so important.... at least to me it is :)

Great little utility. I regularly have a lot of zip files I need to move to different locations. This is a real timesaver.

Bvckup 2 v68 (beta)

webfork on 19 May 2018
  • 589KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 31 Dec 2014
  • Suggested by Midas

Bvckup 2 is a backup/synchronization tool that uses "delta" copy methods, meaning it only transfers changes to a file or files rather than recopying the entire set. This is frequently faster, saves bandwidth for network backups and can help flash media live longer by reducing the overall number of disk writes. The program can do real-time, periodic or manual backups, and also functions as a file copier that can pause and resume both local and network transfers.

Note: this program is an unsupported beta, meaning that the author provides a commercial version of the program that includes support. A previous, freeware version with fewer features is available from bvckup.com.

Category:
System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
Unicode support: Yes
License: Freeware (unsupported beta)
How to extract:
  1. Download the setup program according to your OS and install with defaults
  2. Copy bvckup2.exe to a folder of your choice
  3. Uninstall program
  4. Create an empty text file in this folder with the following content:

    SET conf-dir="%~dp0Config"
    START "" bvckup2.exe -c %conf-dir%


  5. Rename the text file bvckup2-portable.bat
  6. Launch bvckup2-portable.bat
  7. Under Options - Preferences - Software updates, select "Don't check don't remind" as this program will always suggest downloading the latest version, which is not freeware.

Note: Over time that the contents of the "Config" can grow to substantial size. If it grows too large for your storage device, start a new profile and delete the old folder.

@Vacherin: Thanks: I'll check those out and update the instructions if Billon doesn't beat me to it.

Thanks for following up on this. I hope that giving away the old unsupported beta has helped gather attention for your program. It's definitely helped me.

PAFuser on 2018-05-16 11:15

I let bvckup2 do an update, version 1.0+beta updated, but it started with a temporary 1 hour license. Back to 0.68 from backup I have.

@PAFuser thanks for that, updating entry

A great speedy file manager. There are a couple of things that need to be added to make it really usable:
1) Make it open in the folder that was accessed when it was closed last,
2) Provide drag and drop.
Otherwise, it's the only file manager I have found that works when launched as Local System user.
I notice that the current version is 3 years old (2009).
