DSynchronize comes in 2 editions.
Installer by developer "Dimio"
Authorised portable by PortableApps.com

This AltTo.net blurb stand alone statement implies "portability" ...
but the "Website" link lands at developer's website,
and not PortableApps.com ?

I will investigate further and report back here ... soon

Very dissapointing, I had high hopes ~~after 2 days of investigation~~

The website is ancient, no updating by developer.
"Back up to Floppy discs, CD-DVDs" ... hardly inspiring for Win-10/8/7
No mention of system requirements anywhere on the web site. To determine sys.reqs ...
.. download the ZIP -> Extract the contents ... in the extracted folder find { DSynchronize (ENG).txt }
.. sys.reqs are buried in the heart of the download

Some SHORTCOMINGS that turned me off this program
-- Menubar -> File -> Change INI file (item) ... does not open INI file
-- one window of help, HotKeys + Command parameters only
-- no INSTRUCTIONS how to use it NOR what the options represent
-- home page promotes FLOPPY DISCS, + CD-DVD for backups ...
( page has not been updated into 2nd millenium
-- all settings are on the GUI ... all 135 of them

  • ( no links to help
  • ( no popup hints to help
  • ( no online help

-- no email help that I can find
-- no history log

DSynchronize will possibly work ...
BUT I am not prepared to gamble my data on an unsupported program
