You Synchronize helps keep files, folder up-to-date

updated 09:10 am EST, Wed January 7, 2004

You Synchronize 1.0

(previously ExecutiveSync) is a new application that allows users to quickly, easily, accurately and safely synchronize files and folders across notebooks, desktops and servers. It offers performance improvements of up to 8x, includes an improved user interface, and adds numerous new features that let users accurately and safely keep files and folders on different computers and networks up-to-date. You Synchronize supports synchronizing files to Microsoft Windows (NT/2000/.NET) servers running Microsoft Services for Macintosh.

You Software (booth 2323) notes that You Synchronize uses a uniquely accurate and proprietary Time And State (TAS) sync technique that "guarantees accuracy" by storing and comparing sophisticated checksums over time: "TAS is a powerful approach to file synchronization that ensures accuracy by storing files and comparing files by looking for the most recent substantive changes."



To eliminate any potential data loss, You Synchronize allows users to Archive files that are deleted, as well as Archive previous versions of updated files. It also includes new scheduling functions, supports "Projects" for coordinating multiple actions, improves AppleScript support, and offers a new File Compare window that displays the differences between files based on the 35 attributes.



You Synchronize analyzes and compares 40 different file attributes. It now supports an unlimited number of files, includes support for Unicode file and folder names, offers support for long file names, and includes detailed history reporting.



It is available now for Mac OS X 10.2.4 or later for $50. Upgrades from ExecutiveSync are $30 for purchases before December 7, and free to others.

    $29.95 to Upgrade

    I don't have a robust file synch requirement so the upgrade price tag is a little too steep for me. I'll stick with the older version for now.

    Yeah, agreed. I only bought it back in October. Ah well, guess I'll keep using what I have. Bummer.
