FolderMatch compares and synchronizes any two folder trees or two files. Winner at the 2002,2003 and 2004 Shareware Industry Awards, it's a MUST-HAVE tool for keeping files and folders in sync as well as powerful insurance against loss of valuable data.
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. FolderMatch provides one of the fastest, most full-featured duplicate file finders in the industry.
