about Allway Sync Sep 2013

I have a Pro version since several years: Works fine to sync my USB stick. Just be careful when creating the profiles to be sure all is synced as you want. It happened that my stick was broken: all my files where saved but the sync configuration was lost.

Very useful tool also to copy big quantity of files and folders between two places with communication troubles: you are sure all is copied.

about Allway Sync Jun 2011

I used allway sync for 3 years and my satisfaction with it dropped over time. In the beginning it was working fine but the developers didn't introduce features that the competition got. allway sync is missing: pause button, time estimates, resetting sync meta data, ....
Especially one thing is annoying: If you sync to a backup disk and that disk crashes, you format this disk or replace it and use the sync profiles to create backups again. So far to my expectations! But allway sync still uses the old meta data that tells the app about previous synced file. BUT THEY ARE GONE! FACE IT! STUPID APP! ;) There is no way to reset the sync data within the app. Sometimes it helps to delete the sync meta data file by hand. If you find them.
But currently allway sync just crashes. Also the app has issues when syncing a large number of files. They also mention this issue on the homepage. What do they expect from me? Split the folders and jobs to reduce the number of files per job until the app "likes" it ???? Gimme a break.

Sync directly a WebDAV-Folder or "Windows Mobile"-SD-Card

Positive Comment by em4020
about Allway Sync and SyncBack Jun 2011

No other free application than Allway Sync is able to sync directly and reliable a WebDAV-Folder or SD-Memory-Card from a "Windows Mobile" SmartPhone with a Vista PC Folder.
I found no information, that SyncBackSE is able to sync WebDAV-Folder or SD-Memory-Cards from a "Windows Mobile" SmartPhone, although SyncBackSE is not free as Allway Sync is until max. 40000 files / month.
