Useless: Will not copy files that are in use

about SyncToy and Synkron, FreeFileSync · · -1 Helpful

SyncToy will not copy files that are in use which makes is somewhat useless for my needs. I recommend FreeFileSync with VSS (Volume Shadow Service) for this purpose. Easier to use and it doesn't freeze up like Synkron does.

Uh, I tried to install it on Windows XP, didn't work. So I tried Allway Sync and it did the job right.

SyncToy cannot sync a WebDAV-Folder

about SyncToy and Allway Sync · · 1 Helpful

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.
After detailed comparison with many other syncing applications I recommend Allway Sync as the best one, if you have no problems with the restriction of max. 40000 files per months for free private use.


SyncToy: synchronisation prozess was not reliable

about SyncToy and Synk, Allway Sync, PureSync · · 1 Helpful

I have tested SyncToy many month ago on Windows XP. In my indistinct recollection the synchronisation prozess was not reliable, concerning synchronizing in BOTH directions inluding DELETION in BOTH directions, so that i very soon changed to the very reliable professional products Allway Sync (free until max. 20000 files/ month or PureSync free without limitations for private use. The Open Source product SYNKRON is also very reliable, but You cannot see in the file-list (but only in a hint if moving with the mouse over the filename) the size, date and time of the synced files after comparing process.
