Really good for a sync tool.

I like this as a synchronisation tool.
However it really isn't made for backups, So it really isn't advisable to us it as one.
If however you feel like using it as one, Make sure to set the original location to be "Master" and the backup to be a "Slave" and under your original location set it to "Do not modify contents of this folder"

DirSync Pro is still the winner in my book, but not by much

Yeah, this one looks good, has some features I'd find useful, but it doesn't check it's work, and that's a deal-breaker.
No checksummy, no instally.

Disappointing theres no choice but DirSync Pro & TeraCopy for integrity checking sync/copy tools.

I can't build it (install) on Fedora 11 (x86_64)... Building with squirrelsh "say" missing libpcre.so.3. I followed some hint found on google....

  1. installed squirrell
  2. compiled squirrellsh
  3. search and installed libpcre (x86_64 and i586)

... I don't know how to get further! :-(
