DirSync Pro Comments

Non-intuitive.

Negative Comment by TakeNapEveryday
about DirSync Pro Jul 2012

Overly complicated, cluttered interface with tab bars inside of tab bars. If you need to customize your sync in any way you might be digging through menus and looking at the manual. Takes too many steps to accomplish anything.
I would recommend looking at FreeFileSync instead.

I could go on about the quirks this thiing has, and I actually did on the sourceforge site- on all 3 of this guys listings for the app.
The thing about it that keeps it installed is that it checksums.
TeraCopy checksums in a similarly useless way- ie. a failed transfer warns- only warns, no chance to retry or anything logical like that.
But java's quicker than whatever TeraCopy's written in apparently.

about DirSync Pro Jun 2011

I see 2 disadvantages:
(A) Uses no local database, does not need any installation. Because there is no local database, and because of features description at http://directorysync.sourceforge.net/features.html it cannot be possible that a file or directory, which is deleted at one side also will be deleted at the other side. This is only possible, if a synchronisation data file in the synced directory is used. So it is done by "Synkron", "Allway Sync" and WebSynchronizer.
(B) No multilanguage-support, only english
