"I have tried several other
sync packages and feel that while they seem to have some good features,
they fall short in ease of use. One look at FolderMatch told me that a
lot of good thought went behind the design of the user interface. Your
selections of the "Method" to synchronize is crystal clear and provides
users with an extra level of confidence that the software is going to
the option that you want. With your competitors, I'm never sure if the
synchronization is really going one-way."
