Wasn't looking for anything complex when syncing web site files between my local copy and the server. SyncToy simply did the trick with very little hastle. If only every Microsoft product worked in such a normal way.

  • Cannot synchronize WebDAV-files as only Allway Sync or GoodSync can do
  • Cannot synchronize "Windows Mobile" files or folders as only Allway Sync or GoodSync can do
  • No triangle-sync as only Allway Sync, GoodSync, SyncLess or FreeFileSync can do.
  • No VSS-support as FreeFileSync has, only with VSS-Support it is possible to sync open files
  • Not portable as FreeFileSync (with VSS-Support), SyncLess, Synkron or Toucan (no VSS-Support) is.

Outdated. Glitchy install requiring hunt-and-find .Net Framework 3.5. It still wouldn't install. I was going to do a comparison with Compare Advance, which is my favored folder comparison program at this time.

Tools Carbonite and GsRichopy360 are more compatible, robust, and rich features than SyncToy

At the third time that I had to do manually something that the software says it is automatically done it is me who is done with the software.

Under windows 7, SyncToy 2.1 is not reliable. It did not copy everything.
