|Synchronize It! Quick Start
Working with Synchronize It! is pretty much
straightforward, especially when doing common tasks.
The central of your synchronization work in
Synchronize It! will be Start Dialog, where you can
specify what you want to do. At first sight it may seem a bit
cluttered with controls, however with time you will appreciate its
ability to show all settings on single screen, so you can do what
you need without messing with multiple windows.
Start Dialog will be opened for you after
application start, and is always accessible with a single click
() or keystroke (F2).
Answer yourself these questions, filling
appropriate fields in Start Dialog:
1. What do you want to synchronize?
Select objects you want to work with. It could be
your local folders, as well as archives,
ftp sites, or special synchronization
objects, such as snapshot or package. To select object, you can either type
full path in field or press '...' button and browse for it.
Do you want to include subfolders?
Just set "Include subfolders" checkbox to right position.
2. Which files do you want to copy?
Enter file mask, covering files you want to
use. Empty mask will include all files.
3. How do you want to synchronize your data?
Synchronize It! has several preset rules for common tasks - 2
way Synchronize, Update Target, Backup, and Duplicate Source.
Once you have answered all questions and set
appropriate options in Start Dialog, press button. Synchronize It! will scan your
folders, build file list and present it to you, highlighting what
it is going to copy and where to.
If you want, you can review results, deselect some
files, change copy direction etc.

Once you get the list and reviewed it, you can
press button that will
actually start copying files.
