Simple is better. Less is more. Free is good. So it is with a perfectly named Mac file and folder sync and backup app– SyncTwoFolders.
Instead of worrying about the complexity of making a clone of your Mac’s disk, or setting up a complex and automated backup routine, if you simply need to synchronize the files in two folders, use SyncTwoFolders instead of copying in the Finder.
It’s easy to use, too, and starts with the standard Source and Target folders. Select the folder you want as your source, then a folder to be the target. Adjust a few settings, run a simulation, then you’re ready to batch sync the files.
It even works from Mac to another over a local network, which ensures your folder of files in synced between two devices. That’s handy for Mac users on the go who need file synced up on both notebook and desktop.
SyncTwoFolders is smart enough to run a folder sync on a schedule, and can store multiple sync documents. You could spend $20 to $40 or a file backup and sync app that does more and even looks prettier, but, hey. Money is money. Simple is better. Less is more. And free is still a pretty good deal.
