The power of cross-platform synchronization

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 118.139.2.21] on July 23, 2008 01:38 AM
A friend of mine has tried powerfolder, and I almost purchased it myself. However, he found that - whilst it is quite a brilliant application - there were some quirks with it, particularly under windows machines (it would randomly delete contents of folders for no apparent reason). He logged a bug report- and even went into discussions with them, but they couldnt work out what was wrong... So, personally, I'd be a little hesitant to jump into this.
Personally, I find scripts work nicely (use NTBACKUP under windows, and then there's a myriad of 'backup' solutions for linux - particularly under Ubuntu). Create CRON JOBS under mac ;)
