My Sync Is Sinking

I’ve been using the DSynchronize tool for my backups, as you suggested in your post Real Men Don’t Take Backups. While this works great with internal and external discs, unfortunately success with network drives like my NAS shares is mediocre. Do you happen to know of a good alternative?

I do, and in my usual (or at least my usually attempted) spirit of ‘a free and easy tool that does the job well’ I can recommend PathSync v0.4 Beta from Cockos Incorporated.

Don’t let the ‘Beta’ fool you; this is a robust program that does a great job in a couple of steps (other options are available, check it out):
  • Specify the ‘from’ and ‘to’ locations
  • Click ‘Analyze’
  • Review the results and, if desired, remove some proposed actions
  • Click ‘Synchronize’

It’s free, it’s fast, it works fine. Excellent software.
