What is DirSync Pro?

DirSync Pro is a small, but powerful utility for file and folder synchronization. DirSync Pro can be used to synchronize the content of one or many folders recursively. Use DirSync Pro to easily synchronize files from your desktop PC to your USB-stick.

Using DirSync Pro you can make incremental backups. In this way you'll spare lots of time because you don't have to copy all the files each time you want to update your backup; only new/modified/larger files would be copied. DirSync Pro provides some preconfigured modes (e.g. Mirror, Backup, Contribute, …) for common synchronization and backup tasks and some custom modes in which the user could set up the synchronization behavior to meet specific wishes. Prior to synchronization, DirSync Pro performs an analysis on files and folders and detect any kind of changes to any file/directory in the source. If a file is for example modified, removed, deleted, renamed in the source DirSync Pro synchronizes the destination accordingly. DirSync Pro detects also changes to file meta data (e.g. DOS attributes, POSIX file ownerships/group/permissions) and could preserve them to the destination file/directories.

Java JRE 1.7 or above is needed to run DirSync Pro.

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.

Great alternative to FreeFileSync, portable & lightweight <3 under 1mb !

True synchronization between folders is not intuitive, and I don't think it works like most people want when it comes to bidirectional deletes.

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.
