What is WinDataReflector?
WinDataReflector is a lightweight file synchronization and backup tool that wraps up fast file comparison and transfer algorithms into a simple and clear interface that offers you visual comparison of files and folders before synchronizing and backing them up and support for two way synchronization with fully customizable rules.
Two way synchronization with fully customizable rules Changes made to either left or right folder are mirrored to the other folder making them identical and you can also configure WinDataReflector to only propagate certain changes.
Supports synchronizing to major cloud services, SFTP and FTP WinDataReflector supports synchronizing files and data to Google Drive, DropBox, OneDrive, FTP and SFTP.
Real time synchronization and backup WinDataReflector can replicate any changes in synchronized folders in real time.
Automatic synchronization and backup with built in scheduler Schedule any task to run automatically at certain times of day or days of week and at specific intervals.

File and folder filtering using Regular Expressions or regular search Exclude any directory, file name, file extension or exclude files that match regular expressions on the exclusion list.
Support for NTFS file permissions (ACLs/DACLs) NTFS file security information and access rights can be copied to destination files and folders.
Delete options: never delete, move files to recycle bin or permanently delete files To avoid accidental file deletion, WinDataReflector's default configuration is set to never delete files, however, you can change it to either move deleted files to recycle bin or permanently delete files.

WinDataReflector helped me to organize in one place all my downloads that were scattered across different locations and drives (approx. 500GB). It provides a dead simple UI with a couple of settings to define what to sync where, and what to do in case of a file/folder conflict. As for me, this is one of the best examples of excellent usability.
Sync can be one-way or 2-way, you can also set a backup sync to an archive. To see what files will be affected by a sync, there is a special "Process" button to emulate the process. Very handy. WinDataReflector features tabs, so you can have different types of sync in different tabs simultaneously.
Another aspect to mention is the speed of sync. I don't know how, but all my files got synced about 20 percent faster than with other tools (I used AutoVer, Toucan, Free File Sync, Synkron). Even with the simplest 5-minute sync, WinDataReflector can save you up to 1 minute.
This tool is my only way to keep my downloads organized, as I'm constantly changing their location and sometimes my drives resemble a junk yard. Furthermore, it is perfect for making emergency backups of critical files/folders and instant syncs.
