Bidirectional filesystem syncing - DirSync Pro vs. Unison

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 24.31.187.238] on December 05, 2008 01:49 AM
The problem I've always had with Unison is that every minor version breaks compatibility. If you control both boxes that you sync, this is no problem. But for those of us who cannot change the version on our server, this is a deal breaker.

I've found that git (or hg) does a great job with bidirectional syncing, AND tracks versions, in a compact and low-resource manner.
