Product Watch: Got That Synching
This Program May Help...
Connectix announced that SpeedDoubler would not be updated to support
OS 9, there was a cry of protest from fans of its "Smart Replace"
function. Many had used Smart Replace to backup key data on their hard
drives. Connectix has since released a standalone synchronization program,
which supports OS 9 and requires 8.5 or greater.
CopyAgent is not the only synchronizing software in town however. FoldersSynchronizer
from Softob supports OS versions
7 through 9, offering both synchronization and backup functions. Recently
updated to version 1.9.4, FoldersSynchronizer sports an impressive feature
set that should meet everyone's needs:
- Exclude a list of subfolders (up to 16) from synchronization or
- Copy invisible files and folders.
- Set a synchronize/backup schedule.
- Filter documents to copy by Type, Creator and Modification Date.
- Multiple synchronizations/backups (up to 16) from a custom list.
OS 7.0.1 or higher
