FolderMatch compares and synchronizes any two folder trees or two files. Winner of the 2002 Shareware Industry Award for "Best Overall Utility", it's a MUST-HAVE tool for keeping files and folders in sync as well as powerful insurance against loss of valuable data. Whether you're trying to keep files and folders organized on a desktop computer, performing regular backups onto removable disks, synchronizing rapidly-changing laptop data with your main computer, or doing network administration file maintenance, FolderMatch offers one-button folder synchronization for the casual user, and a full range of sophisticated tools for the power user.
When comparing folders and their associated sub-folders, FolderMatch uses side-by-side screens to show the file matches and mismatches. Drag and drop operations are supported between the screens. Using FolderMatch's context (right-click) menu, you can easily view, edit, move, copy, recycle, and delete files. If you're not sure what a file contains, you can load it into its associated program to view it. When comparing individual files, FolderMatch uses line numbers and highlighting to show all of the differences between the files.
FolderMatch lets you compare files five different ways, from the basic comparison of file size and date/time, to the advanced 160-bit Secure Hash Algorithm (SHA) method. The program can even ignore Daylight Savings Time, and FAT/NTFS time differences of up to two seconds, when comparing files. Advanced users can create pattern lists of files and folders to include and exclude from the comparison.
FolderMatch offers one-button folder synchronization. You can synchronize folders in seven different pre-defined ways, including replacing older files with the newer files from the other folder, moving orphan files from folder to folder, making one folder a mirror image of the other, or performing a bi-directional replacement of older and orphan files. You can even define custom synchronization criteria for ensuring that your folders are up to date, and properly backed up.
Who can benefit from FolderMatch?
Everyone who maintains multiple copies of files or folders:
With users working at multiple locations, it's hard to keep all of the
computers current with the latest files and data. Files may change several times a day. How is the work coordinated on all of the various computers, making sure that all systems contain the most recent versions of all of the files? FolderMatch solves this problem. It even gives you the ability to examine the differences between Microsoft Word documents!
Whenever there are duplicate copies of files/folders across a network, there is always a risk that they may be out of sync. FolderMatch can eliminate this risk. No more painful inspections for missing files when setting up directories or applying file updates.
A common task for people working with CD duplication and replication is the verification that the image mastered is the same as the result of the
duplication. A tool that can compare files down to the byte level is
required. FolderMatch offers several byte-level comparison options - from
the industry-standard CRC to the advanced 160-bit Secure Hash Algorithm.
Do you have backups of your backups? Having a backup copy of a critical file can be a real lifesaver when your hard drive crashes or when your dog uses your floppy disk as a chew toy. FolderMatch can help you manage all of your backups.
Hate wasting hard disk space? People are amazed at how many duplicate files are on their computer and how much valuable disk space they take up.
And it provides one of the fastest, most full-featured duplicate file finders in the industry
