I first saw a mention of Synchredible 3.0 on the Lockergnome site last week, and was intrigued by it almost immediately, due to the fact that you could run it on a schedule, even in the free version. None of the current tools I’ve been using to sync certain folders to my thumb drive, or keep a copy of my photos on an external drive, for example, have that feature. (Granted, it’s not like I’ve spent a lot of time looking for one that did either.)
So I downloaded the free version and gave it a whirl this weekend. It’s pretty easy to use, and sure enough it came up and started syncing the folders I had set it to at the time I set it to do so. Can’t really complain about that.
The one real downside to the free version is the nag screen. It launches when Windows starts, an then again after a successful sync. If you were using it to run a number of different sync options, that could become quite annoying, and you might want to consider getting the paid version. At $33 it is something I will be considering as well, though I might want to actually look at some other options before I do!
If you use Synchredible, or some other tool, let us know what you think about it!
