The installation of FolderMatch is easy and intuitive. You can put the program files anywhere you want them. When you start FolderMatch you are told that you have 30 days to try it out. I predict that you will cough up the $35 much sooner.

Lets get one thing straight right away. If you are looking to buy a program that will make it easy for you to keep a couple of computers in synch, like your laptop and your "regular" computer you are at the right place. Especially if these computers are already connected by a network. Of course if you want to get rid of a $100 real quick you can go and download, without a trial, Laplink. I don't think though that you will be getting a better product than FolderMatch.

FolderMatch also does a bunch of other helpful operations. It has a file comparator and difference viewer that can show you the exact differences between text-based files or between Microsoft Word Documents. It also has a hexadecimal binary content viewer, a mass file renamer, a mass file time stamp editor and duplicate file finder. Plus include an atomic clock sync utility.

In conclusion FolderMatch is a world class synchronization tool that I'm sure will meet your needs. Listen, the people at FolderMatch are so confident that not only do they give you 30 days to try it out but they give you links to all of their competitors.

Try It! Buy It!
