Just tried BestSync and I have to say that it's one of those programs that has loads of features and settings yet it does not confuse users that are not that familiar with this type of software programs

about BestSync Jun 2011

I prefer Synkron: Free Version of BestSync 2011 cannot sync network drives & the portable version is very expensive
The free BestSync version 2011 cannot synchronize files in network drives or shared folders, see (1) and search for "network drive"!
For the portable version of BestSync 2011 you pay US$28.00, see http://www.risefly.com/fsebuy.htm.
So I clearly prefer Synkron (2), if I need a 100% (also for commercial use) free portable and multilanguage solution for a dropbox folder and network synchronisation (2). Synkron (Open Source) has also a quite good backup function for similar purposes as Cobian Backup. If I need a free private solution with network synchronisation I use PureSync (3) (not portable) or Allway Sync (4), also portable and with all functions you can imagine, but limited with 40000 files per 30-day in the free version.

The normally necessary basic functions Network Sync and File Exclusion you do not have in Free License of BestSync.
Because of this I prefer the "Better than Best Sync" products PureSync, SyncBack or "Allway Sync" although BestSync supports 15 languages and SyncBack supports only English in the free version.
