SyncToy is a Microsoft Windows XP PowerToy that allows the synchronization of multiple files and directories. I downloaded it this morning and have been playing with it, and so far have had no problems — everything works as advertised (it wouldn’t sync my PST files after I closed Outlook, but then I realized that X1 and my Blackberry software were keeping an Exchange connection open, and it worked fine after I exited those 2 programs). It is important to note 3 things about this program:
- It is “beta” and not officially supported by MS Technical Support.
- It requires Windows Genuine Advantage verification before download (even unsupported beta programs now require this — amazing).
- XP SP2 is required.
