What are people saying about FolderMatch

CJCotter I tried out FolderMatch. I have a program that changes the individual folder icons to anything of my choosing. To do so, it creates a hidden .ICO file and a hidden system .INI file. FolderMatch copies the hidden files, but does not preserve the folder icon change. FolderMatch returns the folders to their default manila. Can this be fixed somehow? Thank you.

Art Araya Hi C,

Try manually copying these same files to another folder using only Explorer, are the new icons retained? I suspect that they are not.

FolderMatch performs a simple copy of the files in the folder from one folder to the other using your underlying Windows file system. I suspect that perhaps your icon changing program is relying on absolute paths and when you change the folder locations, the path information stored in the INI files becomes incorrect? I can't truly say since I am not familiar with that program or how it works.

Try sending their support group this question. They'll know the inner workings of their program and be better able to tell you why copying the files from one folder to another doesn't work for you.

CJCotter Yes, there are some folder-icon-changing programs that rely on the icon and the folder remaining in the same location. The one I have does not. It makes them independent and portable. I can copy them to other locations in my computer, or onto to other computers. You have my email. If you send me yours, I will send back a changed folder so that you can test FolderMatch with it.

Art Araya Hi Manie,

if you are going to be synching the two computers to each other only one license is needed. If you're going to be using FM on each of the computers to sync with multiple other machines then you'll need a license for each computer.

If this is for your personal home usage we offer a low cost Home License Upgrade which allows you to use FM on an unlimited number of home computers/laptops for one low price.

Ralph Bressler I am always looking for a better program so I gave this one a try. I have been using BeyondCompare and have been very pleased with its performance. FolderMatch does not seem to have a way to make a comparison between a folder on your computer and one on an FTP server. This is very important to me. After making the comparison FM lists the files and folders with a symbol to indicate what it found. I deleted a file and FM went back to rescan everything again! THis takes time especially when scanning a lot of files and folders. For me, BeyondCompare is a better choice.

Techtoysavvy low cost Home License Upgrade
What is the price and can we buy it today?

I am interested in using this software to consolidate files from multiple older computers at home onto a server. I will try this today by installing this on my server. From what I understand i should only need 1 license since I should be able to mount the folders located on other computers as shares on the server.

In any case, this could be useful on many computers, for example to keep my kids laptops/desktops in sync, delete leftovers etc. Let me know about the Home License.

Art Araya Hi Prasad,

For your intended usage only one license is required. As you said, you can install and run FM from the server and do the work you want to do.

We offer other license options like Lifetime Free Upgrades and the Home License Upgrade. These are offered to you during the order process and in registration emails we send to you.

Art Araya Hi John,

The Home License cost is $21.99. This is a great option if you already have a FolderMatch license for the latest version and want to use this license on all of your home computers. Note that this is not for business use. (I'm sure you know that but others are reading this response as well.)

lemonade soda I really like FolderMatch and used to use it a lot about 6 or 7 years ago. Since that time, my folder replication needs have moved from local LAN to WAN. So I don't use it anymore. Does the new version of foldermatch allow me to replicate over WAN? (I run a home server with all my files, and I want to replicate my laptop when I am travelling, on holiday, at work etc.) MS do a great tool for this, but it requires a domain, so business environment only. I really need a home solution, and so few options exist. Hope foldermatch can help!

Art Araya Hi Lemonade - FolderMatch can usually work with any two folders as long as the following two conditions are met:

1) Using only Windows Explorer from the computer that FM is installed on you can see both folders and their contents. (without any form of authentication being required to access either)

2) Using only Windows Explorer from the computer that FM is installed on you can manually copy files back and forth between the two folders

Art Araya For anyone interested in the Home License upgrade mentioned above please note that this is not the link to use to purchase the latest version of FolderMatch. It is meant to extend your current FM license to allow use of FM on all of your home computers. It is an additional purchase.

Art Araya FolderMatch v3.7 can compare and copy files/folders with unicode characters if you've installed those language packs in Windows even if the characters are not not your system defined default language.

What it can't do is display them in the comparison results window. The names will appear with question mark characters in place of the unicode characters. Once this happens the names are corrupted and if you ask FM to do anything with those files, it won't be able to.

If FM does not need to display those unicode chars (often achievable by simply comparison the two parent folders one level higher in the folder tree) then it can compare and copy the successfully

George Butel I don't need to buy FolderMatch again, but I thought I'd add my two cents worth here. I bought it on 7/31/10, and I must say that it is the most useful utility I've ever used. I don't trust automatic synchronization programs; I like to see what's there and what's the same and what's different, and, besides, I'm always changing things like folder names, which would mess up any automatic program. One time it even helped me figure out an odd Windows glitch when it kept telling me that two apparently identical folders were different. It turned out that one of them had an invisible unicode character in the file name.

SKY Well, I was just about to purchase this item but reading about all the problems people are having with it, I think I will pass. It is a good thing that someone from the vendor is answering concerns here hands on, but trying to direct complainers away from this open forum to their own, so that the software does not look too problematic to people like me, is a bad move. Further than that, I have never heard that one would have to do a simple installation in safe mode, which, if needed, I would NEVER do or even would not know how to. Pity, because I needed this kind of program to sort out my internal and external HDDs. But I cannot afford to risk it, pay for it and then encounter all these problems users here are having and then (since I will not follow strange advises like safe mode install) have problems getting a refund. Why can't you offer a product AFTER all the bugs have been ironed out? Are discounted software seekers your involuntary and in this case, paying testers? At least offer it for free so we can all try to deal with it and once all is perfect, offer it for sale.

John Terdik Art Araya - Currently I use SyncBackPro for my data backups on four home PCs where everything is backed up to a 14TB RAID 5 array. Each day SBP runs about 40 to 50 jobs. One of the jobs on each system is to sync the documents folder (about 100 GB) across all my PCs.
I use BC mainly to compare folders and most often use it to sync those folders or move/copy stuff from one folder (source) to another (destination). I've become very comfortable with BC interface and find it very easy to use.
For my OS drive imaging I currently use Acronis True Image 2014, each night incremental runs are made and once a week a full BU is run on all four systems. The output of TI is placed on the RAID 5.
I'm always looking for better solutions to make my PC life easier but frequently I find myself in PC hell where the backup have saved me numerous times.
I also test a lot of software. I plan to extend my usage of VMware Workstation to assist this effort.

Art Araya Hi John - I don't see how FM would help you in the process you describe above beyond what BC is already providing for you. I think it would be redundant. You are welcome to download it and try it for free to see if you prefer its operation over BC. There are some operations I would prefer FM for and some I would prefer BC for. For a simple compare and copy/move of folders it's pretty much a toss up. They both do that well.

Do you plan on releasing version 4 any time soon?

If so, do you know when?

John H I am loading every file I own onto a 4TB external drive. Will folder match automatically go through this hard drive and find matching folders or is this just for comparing folders that I select to compare?

Art Araya Hi John H,

FolderMatch will compare two folder trees that you select. The two folder trees can be the root folders of two drives however so you can compare two drives using FolderMatch.

Download it and give it a try on your drive to make sure it meets your needs. It's fully functional during the 30 day trial period.

Gary Smith @Art Araya,

The changelog page on your website shows that the software is currently at version 3.7.3. The Fine Print section on Bitsdujour states that the updates will be free for minor versions, and that the next full version would require additional payment, and that it would be discounted only if the user had purchased the last major version.

What are you considering the next major version number? Is the next major version considered 3.8.0 or is it 4.0.0?

Thanks.

Gary Smith @Art Araya,
Thanks for your reply. I think of major releases being the same. The reason I asked was due to seeing an offer on your website to upgrade from version 3.4.8 for $16. I would have thought that would be free based on the Bitsdujour Fine Print section, which says that the updates will be free for minor versions, and that the next full version would require additional payment, and that it would be discounted only if the user had purchased the last major version (3.0). Did your upgrade version policy change at some point?

The version you sell now is version 3.7.3, which is close to the 4.0 version. Since today's buyers are way past purchasing the last major version (3.0), we would have to pay full price for version 4.0, although we would not get many minor updates before version 4.0.

I am always concerned about purchasing software when the version number is close to the next major version, due to that being the end of free updates.

The "free updates to the next major version" scenario gets more important the closer the current version gets to the next major version number. Imagine if this were version 3.9.8. We would get only one update (to 3.9.9) before the next major (4.0.0) version, which would be a paid for update. If the current version were barely past a major release number, we would get the opportunity to have more minor updates (a greater bang for our buck).

This is the flaw in the "until next major version" update programs for buyers. Some software companies have implemented other update methods to protect user's investment.

Here is one buyers cannot complain about too much. ...

Since the current version (3.7.3) is close to the end of the numbers before version 4.0.0 comes out, and since Salty Brine Software is a forward thinking company, would your company consider starting a plan that would allow free updates to the same minor version number of the next major version number, which would be version 4.7.3? After that, the user pays for the next update. Therefore, late version buyers may get a major version feature, but not for all minor versions of that major release, and earlier version buyers would get more free updates. It evens out the update issue to persuade buyers of any version that their investment is protected.

J S Dear Art Araya, I like to know Everything there is to know before I make my purchase, so I have questions for you about the program and pricing:

Q1. Does Folder Match copy or match EXACT TiME as well as DATE for both Files AND FOLDERS or do you offer some form of Date & Time tweaking method to ensure exact reproduction. (I own a number of these types of programs and surprisingly EXACT Folder Dates and Times is not always considered important, however some programs such as Beyond Compare offer manual tweaking tools)

Q2. There is no mention in The Fine Print tab details, whether the program requires "online activation" of the license or perhaps a different type of activation such as 'activation of license by email'.

In the 7 years since I discovered BdJ and I have actively participated in Bits Du Jour promotions and User comments, the VAST MAJORiTY of Bits du Jour User's HATE online product activation. (I suppose we take it as a 'slur' againt our honesty)

Q3. Can you please advise me what 'percentage off the normal price' or if you have different rates, then 'just the pricing' for the User to purchase the Version 4 Upgrade.

If as I suspect - as is often the case with Vendors who sell via Bits du Jour, the License Upgrade discount is 50% representing $18.00 USD.

------------------------------
If your Upgrade Discount is 50% if the case, then I'm wondering if it is actually worth buying todays deal. $15 for today's 56% Discount plus a possible version 4 Upgrade Discount of $18, makes a total of $33 which is only $3 less than buying the product at retail price.

Often times vendors whose products are drawing near to the release of the next Major Upgrade, will offer Bits du Jour USER's an upgrade deal. For example: If User's buy today, the next Major Upgrade is included.

------------------------------
I won't be online for the next 18 hours, so I have had too throw everything into the one comment posting, and hopefully - when I'm back online, I find your replies favourable enough to make my purchase.

Many thanks (in anticipation)

Art Araya @Gary Smith

Yes, the upgrade path from v3.4.8 is different than our standard. There were lots of reasons behind this which are not really relevant to this discussion though we have no problems explaining it to you, if you'd like. In terms of your question, the answer remains, the next major release of FM will be version 4 and any revisions before that will be considered minor (and free) for a BDJ user who purchases this offer of FM v3.7.3.

Art Araya @JS - It's good to ask questions up front. Let me address your questions:

Q1)

FM can compare file modification date/times exactly or it can factor in issues such as Daylight Savings Time and FAT/NTFS timestamp precision issues. This is user configurable.

Folder dates are not considered at all.

Q2)

FM does NOT require online activation

Q3)

We haven't really finalized the final pricing structure for version 4. I'd hate to quote you something wrong in this response. My best guess is that the upgrade from v3 to v4 will cost somewhere in the $16-$18 range.

In terms of your comment about vendors offering their product on BDJ right before releasing a new version - FM is being offered on BDJ at their request. We did not approach them or select the date of the promotion.

We are working on version 4 and hope it'll be ready in a few months but you know how these things go, it could be another 6 months before we're ready to release it.

Let me know if you have any further questions.

Techtoysavvy I purchased FolderMatch a while back here on BDJ.
At the time I thought it was per user and not per machine.
Has the licensing changed?
Sep 22 2016 at 8:54am Copy Link

Art Araya @techtoysavvy - our licensing has always been per machine and not per user. But there's some flexibility with this. For instance, if you're comparing and synching your desktop to your laptop and you've got FM installed on one of them, you really only need one license. If you've got FM installed on your desktop and your laptop and you're using it on each to perform various functions on each one at different times, then we'd like you to purchase two licenses.

We do offer a Home License upgrade for personal use which allows a user to purchase an additional add-on license to permit usage of FM on all (unlimited number) home computers.

If your usage is for business we do offer reduced pricing on multiple license purchases.

So as you can see, we're not super rigid about this like MS is for example. But yet we are trying to prevent the scenario where one license is purchased for a low price and then used on hundreds of computers. It's an intent thing. We're not going to come to your home or office to audit this. We're just looking for a fair agreement for both sides.

There is no portable version of FolderMatch.

The current version has partial Unicode support. The core code supports Unicode but the user interface does not. It can compare/copy/delete/move/rename them but only if it doesn't haven't to display the names on the user interface. Once the name is displayed it becomes corrupted with ????? characters.

The next major release of FM provides full Unicode support.

John User I downloaded the software and gave it a try. I like it.

However, once again like many of the offerings on BDJ I am reluctant to purchase because of the one license per computer deal. I am a snowbird (part of the year in Florida and part in NJ) and have a desktop PC in each location. It is my understanding that I would then need to purchase a license for each machine even though I would only be using one machine at a time roughly for six months each year. Or, I suppose I would have to get in touch with customer support twice a year to change the license?

Although I like the software, it would be a little too pricey for me to buy two licenses in my situation. By the way, would the $15 per computer deal today result in a $30 charge for both computers? I see on your website the normal price would be $66.

At any rate, nice software, but the per machine stipulation vs per user will likely draw a pass from me.

I own 3 sync programs and the other 2 have tighter licensing restrictions.

I have a question regarding upgrades.
Under the fine print it states "Upgrades to future versions of the software will be free up to the next major version" but on your website under downloads section it states "Upgrade from version 3.4.8 Now for only $16". Please explain...
I purchased a license and a family license in 2012 when it was version 3.69. Is it going to change in the future and you guys update the website and state something like"Upgrade from version 3.82 Now for only $16" It was my understanding that I would receive upgrade thru 3.99.

Please advise....

Art Araya @Gwynne

That's a great question. I can see where that would cause confusion. The backstory for this response is a long one. Let me skip all that and just cut to the short answer. Version 3.5.0 was a major release. The numbering does not reflect that but if you look at the list of changes made on our Version History page you'll see that this is so. We probably should have numbered it 4.0 but chose not to for several internal reasons. I don't foresee that happening again.

Thanks for the quick reply. I didn't need the long version as to why, I'm sure it is a good story to hear over a cold one. It just seems like we have more issues with updates vs upgrades and per computer or per user on this site. Thanks again for the quick response, We have several vendors that never chime in or answer any questions. It really makes the decision a lot easier when the vendor gets involved.

1) Re: UNC

Yes, UNC paths are supported

2) Re: CML

Yes and no. You can invoke FolderMatch's folder and file comparison functions via a batch file or script. But the output of the comparison results are not displayed in console mode. The FolderMatch UI is shown with the comparison results displayed.

3) Re: AFS

Are you referring to the Andrew File System? If so, are you asking if there's a version of FolderMatch that will run on the Andrew File System? If that is what you are asking, the answer is No. FolderMatch runs on Windows 7/8/10 only. It expects the drive to be formatted with some version of FAT or NTFS.

Or are you asking if FolderMatch can compare/sync to a second drive with AFS on it?

4) Re: Android

As stated in the previous response, FolderMatch will run only on Windows. There is no Android version.

are you asking if FolderMatch can compare/sync to a second drive with the Android operating system on it?

PortablesFan I saw in an earlier reply that this doesn't have a portable version available, but would just like to put in my vote that you consider such in the future! BeyondCompare--which I've seen mentioned along the way in comments here--supports a portable install, for example.
Will be buying a copy of FM anyway, but as you can guess from my username, here's hoping for this feature to be included down the road!

(Also, another vote against the Ribbon UI, or at least in favor of an option to still use a menu-based UI...)

Thanks for the deal!

Art Araya @Mappi75 - To install FM on all of your home computers you need to buy only the Home License Upgrade. If you want free upgrades for life, then purchase the Lifetime Upgrade Assurance.

Whichever way you decide to go, make sure you also get the free license of FolderMatch that BDJ is offering. The two licenses we're talking about (Home and Lifetime) are both optional add-ons to the free license.

Art Araya @William User - BDJ is aware of the security certificate issue. Here is their reply from further up in the comments.

"The certificate indeed expired however we are working on fixing it. To still participate in the promotion you could click the Advanced link at the bottom of the page (when that error shows up) and then on “Proceed to www.bitsdujour.com”."

jboy "Art Araya @jboy - the version being offered is 3.7.3...."

Art, thank you for the reply. I discovered that after I downloaded it and found it was the same version I already have. I made that comment really for the BDJ team to suggest that they make it a standard practice to show the software version number of the offer. That is basic, necessary information and it makes sense to do so.

I appreciate you replying, however. Thanks again. Also for the offering.

George Butel I discovered this program in early 2010, and I don't know how I survived without it before. It is the best Windows utility there is. I'm not a big fan of automatic sync programs, not just because they use resources, but because I don't trust them. I like to see what's being done and I might like to change my options at a whim. This fills the gap for keeping backup folders or drives synchronized. I use it every day You can immediately see what files have changed and you might even notice a couple of files you'd forgotten about.
It also finds duplicates, and has a huge list of options for removal. Even for duplicate finding, it's better than what's on CCleaner or Glary, and it's much better than the freestanding Auslogics free tool and some pay programs that are designed just to find dupes.
You do need to have some familiarity with Windows, though, and pay attention to the options. Also, you have to pay attention to what you just did: if you decide, say, to make the left folder the same as the right, don't forget the next time you run the program to make sure that you're synchronizing the direction you think. (In other words, if, out of habit, you make the right folder you're synchronizing the same as the left, which, for me, is normal, but, on one occasion, you did it the other way around, then you might forget, if you use it all the time, and synchronize the wrong way out of habit the next time--I've done that--since Foldermatch will remember.) Art, you ought to consider adding a button to "restore my defaults" (not just Folder Match's defaults.)

Art Araya @lisba f - Unicode is partially supported in the current version. It will be fully supported in the next major release - v4.

bvssunnydale Hi, FM's site says " Conforms with Windows XP/2003/Vista/Windows 7 32 & 64 standards" - does this mean it's not fully compatible with Win10? Thanks.

The Home License upgrade is an add-on to your normal FolderMatch license. With the Home License upgrade add-on, you are authorized to install FolderMatch on all of the computers in your home for one low price.

Without the Home License Upgrade you are only supposed to install FM on one computer.

Kelly Hamblin I am currently using version 3.7.3. on one of my computers. I'd like to be able to use it on the desktop that is currently en route to my home. I was wondering if the $0 FolderMatch must be installed today or if it can be installed at a later date.

Art Araya @Kelly Hamblin - " I was wondering if the $0 FolderMatch must be installed today or if it can be installed at a later date.". It may be installed at any point in time.

Art Araya To those having install problems - try reinstalling while Windows is in Safe Mode. After the reinstall you can reboot back to normal mode.

s User Installing in safe mode is definitely not cyber secure and definitely not recommended. I would never do that.

HKP I’m missing the most important feature: When I start the program, I expect to see a view like shown in your first screenshot above. Though, this view appears not until the user has clicked on the compare-button.

I want to see what I’m going to do before I start a command. otherwise a loss of data can easily occur. Therefore, I want to see a tree view after choosing a folder, a partition or an entire hard drive. However, all what your software provides after my choice, is an empty window.

Sorry, but with such a tool it’s impossible to do any serious work.
