SyncToy, a free download from Microsoft, is an easy to use application that allows you to manage files between folders and computers. You can copy, rename, delete or move files of any type whether they're audio, visual, text or a combination from nearly any media.
With all the sources of information we now use it's become a real chore to manage our files. Information from camcorders, email, PDAs, laptops, digital cameras and cell phones are increasingly taking up time and effort. SyncToy manages all these types of files with a few mouse clicks, keeps track of files that are renamed and ensures that the changes carry over to a new folder.
You can easily combine information from two folders or manage multiple folders or sets of directories simultaneously. You can customize SyncToy to your needs and end the drudgery of manually dragging and dropping files you are trying to keep organized. You can also grab files from a network share; small workgroups will love this free application. It's also an excellent backup tool.
SyncToy is a very simple tool to use and works with Windows 7, XP and Vista. Its simple, user-friendly interface holds no nasty surprises or complicated concepts. It even has a preview function that lets you know results of an action before you actually do it. It ends the trouble most of us have maintaining our MP3s or JPEGs in some sort of order and you'll always know where to find your information - which would be a nice change for some of us. SyncToy is a practical, simple and easy tool for better file management at home or in the workplace.
