Bad,bad,bad: NO Sync software can handle RENAMED and MOVED files !


Sebastian Kaist

I was searching for a really good sync software which is able to recognize
renamed and moved files. But much to my surprise all of the tools I have investigated so far
are very dumb. The maximum they detect is if a file exists on the other side or not.

Is calculation a (CRC32) hash of files really so difficult?

That way a rename or a move of a file can be detected without problems.

I have tried out so far:

Allway Sync

All these programs view renamed files as two independent programs and suggest them (in the preview mode)
them to copy to the opposite side. As a result I got TWO files.

Maybe some guy here knows another tools which is able to detect RENAMES and MOVES.
