Create Synchronicity is an opensource application developed in VB.NET to synchronize files and folders and create backups. It aims at making the synchronization process as easy as possible, and yet remains fully customizable. Create Synchronicity is especially light: zipped, it weights less than 80kB, ie. less than a fifth of Yahoo's Home Page. Unzipped, the application itself is less than 170kB, again beating Yahoo's home page.
Suppose you have an MP3 player (say, running Rockbox), on which you want to synchronize you music. Suppose you download covers, add music, modify file tags frequently.
It will be no fun to try remembering everything you modified and then use the wonderful Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V repeatedly, or worse, copy everything back and forth every time you change a single file. Nope, you need a powerful syncing solution.
Well, that's pretty much what Create Synchronicity is : an easy solution to backup, synchronize, and copy files from one place to another. I designed Create Synchronicity because everything I had tried before had problems with some things I wanted to do. Some applications, for example, wouldn't let me choose which filetypes were to be included, or excluded. Some others would crash, because my musical library is quite huge (60 GB). Sometimes, I just didn't like the interface.
That's why I designed Create Synchronicity. To make things simple and still, highly customizable - in a friendly way.
If you don't like it, that's great: do tell me about it ; it will allow me to fix everything you didn't like.
