Softobe has released a new version of its archival and backup utility, FoldersSynchronizer. The new version, 2.1, is ready for download from links on Softobe’s Web site.
With FoldersSynchronizer, you can either maintain mirror copies of directories on multiple hard drives, or you can use the software to backup and delete content from one volume to another. The software contains a wide variety of customization features to tailor your backup or archive, and is AppleScriptable.
Changes in FoldersSynchronizer 2.1 include:
It runs on MacOS X and Classic environments. FS is now a Carbon application.
The preference file on MacOS X is in the folder “(Home):Library:Preferences:FoldersSync 2.0 Prefs”.
Thus there is a different preference file for each user.
The “Session” files saved on MacOS X have a 128×128 icon. Drag these files onto the Dock to better see that icon. Also you will be able to launch and configure FS clicking on the icon in the Dock.
If a fileName/folderName conflict occurred while copying, and the fileName contains a dot “.” (e.g. “MyFile.rtf”), FS will rename that file to “MyFile.1.rtf” and not longer “MyFile.rtf.1” so to prevent the link to the right application on MacOS X.
FoldersSynchronizer is distributed as shareware. The software costs US$30 to register, or $10 to upgrade from previous versions. FoldersSynchronizer works on Mac OS 8-X.
