Great Software! I've testing and works just fine.
One Request: I wonder if would be possible to leave everything backed up in only one compressed file and when checks for changes make another compressed file with only changed files/folders since last full backup.
That way we can get only changes over time 'til we make another full backup

A local computer repair guy introduced me to your program, and I'm real glad he did. It's so much better than the backup that's built into Windows 10. I'll be recommending it to all of my friends now.

THANKS! after fooling around with other backup apps (paid and shareware) that I didn't like for various reasons, I came across this, and it just works great, plain and simple. Well done!

Hi, I did a mirror backup from left to right drives but unfortunately my drives interchanged and ended with old data transfering to new one. Now i want to reverse the action to get my new data. Pls suggest.

I am trying to back up data from a NTFS disk to an exFAT one and I would like the "last modified" date of directories to be preserved. If I copy a directory from NTFS to exFAT using Windows Explorer the "last modified" date is preserved, but this does not happen when using Create Synchronicity. I also tried to set "Sync folder attributes:True", but it does not work either. Thanks for any help!!!

Comment by Milan (2016-08-01 16:41:03) Post reply

Your SW is supposed to backup data, but instead it destroyed mine. This is what happened: I set CS to back up my 4 TB drive (E:) to my removable external 4TB drive (H:). I set CS to synchronize the external drive (H:) with the internal drive (E:) every month. Today (1st day of August), I had my 8 GB flash drive connected to this PC and at one moment the data just disappeared from it. They were replaced by fraction of files from drive E:. Windows assigned drive letter H: to my flash drive. CS didn't check the drive but just did a backup process. Therefore, my original files were deleted. Your SW should at least validate the drives at the beginning of backup process.

Comment by Miso (2016-05-06 21:31:34) Post reply

Been using you great product for years. Only now I find a flow; I have different groups that do backups of different directories.
Now, I noticed that if I name a "Profile" with a same name as a "Profile" in another group, the change will not be excepted. No warning issued either.

Comment by Bobba (2016-04-16 12:53:15) Post reply

Great software!
One feature request: When the backup destination is not present (e.g. removable USB disk), maybe it can then detect when the disk is later inserted and automatically start the backup? It would make it easier for when being used by novice users.
If that is not possible, even a box that tells the user to attach the backup disk and then press "ok" to begin backup would be good.

Hey there,
First of all, Create Synchronicity (CS) is awesome. I have it in use on several systems. Clean, light weight, fast, easy to use... Just great .
Couldn't find anything using Google about this, but we discovered that on Windows 8, synchronizing to Ubuntu 12.04, via Samba share, if the destination folder has a space in its name, CS fails with "access to path "X" denied errors.
You guys know about this yet? We tested this by removing space in the one folder name, and synchronization succeeded.

It would be nice to have an option NOT to reproduce the folder tree. For example, if I want to collect all of the *.pdf files from the source tree and placed them in a single destination folder. Then you can backup that folder and easily find a missing file.

Hi Clement,
Just discovered Create Synchronicity. Just what I was looking for: no non-sense, solid, portable backup app.
Out of curiosity, i looked at your bio. Love your work, style and interests. All with a french touch!
Would be awesome to refresh Create Synchronicity GUI and resume development (apart from GUI look, i am not sure what could be improved though ...).
A plus, Daniel

Comment by Menno (2015-11-26 10:35:59) Post reply

Hi there,
I have been using Synchronicity for some time now, It works great, but I'm encountering a peculiarity...
I work from a network drive, which I keep offline using Windows. This is my working folder. I then do an icremental copy of all the files to another network drive, which is in a folder which all my colleagues can see.
It seems that Synchronicity copies al the attributes of the files and folders I copy, so files on the target drive also become available off line. That's costing me quite a bit of disk space of course.
Any suggestions to fix this? I'd like to not have the files in the target directory kept offline by Windows.

Can you add a feature to have a volume shadow copy?

Reply by lulo (2015-12-03 19:14:17) Post reply

Agree wholeheartedly with this request!
Volume Shadow Copy is the most important missing feature of the very few that I miss from this otherwise magnificent program. Thanks Clément!
Even have tried to run Create Synchronicity from a batch script using the vshadow.exe command based on adioltean's msdn blog script but the recursive callbacks to the batch script to get the temporary volume name are a bit of a mess.
Would be awesome if Create Synchronicity could also backup all the locked open files.

You can make Create Synchronicity run arbitrary command after synchronization completes; there are example scripts on the downloads page, including one for shutting down the computer after syncing.

excellent program , but i need help.
i can not exlucte a certain pattern of file names (they are autobackups)
my CAD software creates autobackup files named Myfile.0001.rvt and so on. I do not want to backup these, so they must be excluded.
In any other windows based backup software i would simply exclude *.0*.rvt
i tried /.[0000-9999].rvt/ but this apparently excludes any file that contains a number, and it ignores punctuation.
I would greatly appreciate any help, because the software is quick and efficient to maintain a mirror backup

I don't know it's bug or something other but unchecking "Replicate empty directories" feature don't work for me. Program synchronizing folders that don't contain specified file types.

Is this software being developed anymore? This my favorite sync software, but I have not seen any activity in 3 years.

Reply by Clément (2015-06-02 15:21:56) Post reply

There's been a bit of activity actually! Mostly on the translations front though. I don't have that much free time these days so I haven't been implementing too many new features, but that's in line with Create Synchronicity's simplicity goal anyway.
I'm committed to fixing bugs if they pop up, but I'm happy to say that no significant data-threatening bug has popped up in the last three years:)

Comment by Christopher (2015-05-13 02:16:11) Post reply

You need to list the operating system compatibility for this software (Windows only) on your download page and in your FAQ, otherwise it wastes times for people who are looking for a solution that will work cross-platform. (I found it finally supported OS's listed in the manual but the download page and the FAQ page are where people will look first).

Hi Vivian,
Thanks for your comment. The UI does not yet have a setting to run all profiles in a group at once, but you can use the command line for that; see @@help#command-line for information about this (you would want to put them together in a group.

Comment by Martin (2015-04-05 16:46:12) Post reply

I have been using this application for about two years, and it's by far the best I've found for file backups. I backup two laptops and a desktop to a Synology NAS on a schedule, and it just works brilliantly, and has a very small footprint.
One suggestion I have is to maybe have the app wait a couple of minutes before catching up a missed backup. The situation I find is I switch my PC on, and as soon as Windows loads Create Synchronicity detects the missed backup and tries to start the backup task. This is often before my networks card has fully initialised and all the other windows stuff has settled down. As a result, the app says it can't find the destination (Network NAS) and fails. Having the app wait a few minutes would help I think!
Thanks again for such a great piece of software.

I can't delete the program. Hate to buy the uninstall program just to do it. Id rather donate to you than do that. I've delete a profile but it keeps doing the script anyway.I dont get it.

Comment by MD (2015-03-30 04:47:06) Post reply

I am loving the app so far. But when I select items to backup, I don't know the size of the backup set. This causes me to have to guess which folders I need to delete from the backup set to fit onto the external drive. I peeked through the online manual but did not see anything on this topic.

Wow... KUDOS SQUARED ... a little gem that I stumbled upon by accident. This pup doesn't need a formal winblows installation with hooks in the registry which means throw it on your backup drive and it becomes a transportable quickie bi directional directory file sync! The pup is a self contained executable and it works in a windoze environment stand alone with a GUI! Use quote marks to refer to system resources by logical name, not hardware (e.g. "//server", "USB_Stick" and so on)and it's happy as a clam basking in shalow water. I am impressed!

Comment by Saud (2015-01-14 07:29:52) Post reply

It would be really nice to check for file integrity before starting a backup, like creating filecheck.txt in a folder with random text in it and then Create Synchronicity open and read the file before starting the backup. If the file is corrupt or encrypted with a ransom-ware virus then stop the whole backup process. There are so many viruses that encrypt or corrupt the files and ask money, it would prevent Create Synchronicity from copying bad files to good locations.

Comment by Eric Montagne (2015-01-11 18:08:57) Post reply

Thanks for your great software which is easy to use.
I've 2 requests about Create Synchronicity:
- first, an improvement: add a popup window when synchronizing a new profile (the first time) if the destination directory isn't empty to inform that all content will be destroyed.
- second, a new feature: a button or an entry menu to synchronize all profiles at the same time (sequentially) using perhaps a check list dialog where it could be possible to deselect some profiles.

I used to use a great old tool called FileSync many years back, and it had a great feature that I haven't found a suitable alternative to in many other tools.
Whilst it used to allow you to keep two directories in sync, it also used to allow you to choose to output the differenced files that require syncing to a completely separate directory, in effect allowing you to create a patch or collection of files the to be used to transfer elsewhere to bring another folder up to date.
I don't know if you've thought of adding this type of feature before now?

Sure! The latest beta has it. You write folder".svn" in the file exclusion box, and it excludes all folders called .svn. Otherwise, editing configuration files works as well (see the manual)

Comment by typhoon (2014-10-09 06:34:53) Post reply

Would it be possible to add the ability to pause the syncronization?
Right now you can cancel it, but then you have to restart the job, which can be time consuming.

Comment by Michael Thompson (2014-10-03 16:22:20) Post reply

Nice program. Does most of what I need, but would be nice to have the following:
1. Ability to specify logon credentials for source and/or destination.
2. Ability to schedule multiple times per day. For example, I might want to synchronize every 2 hours.
I use real-time controllers that have read-only file systems. They write their log data to ram-based disks which are wiped out if power is lost. In order to minimize the amount of lost data, I would like to synchronize every two (or worst-case, four) hours. The controllers require logon credentials to access them.

Reply by Clément (2014-10-17 22:03:59) Post reply

It's generally not to good for your hard drive to sync too often, especially automatically (and it hurts the performance of the rest of your system, too. Still if you really want to do it, you can run a planified task every two hours, that calls Create Synchronicity on the command line. Write me for more details, or look at the manual :)

Comment by Kolio (2014-10-01 08:51:37) Post reply

Hi Clemente! Thanks for this great tool!
Was thinkin, if you make it recognise that a folder was simply moved, it would save alot of time of deleting the folder copy at the old place in the tree and the copying it across again on the new place. Folders can be quite big!

Comment by Curry B Taylor (2014-07-31 23:06:43) Post reply

Logs get really big really quickly. It would be great if we could tell the program to only keep the logs from the last N number of backups, for each backup.

Do you have plans to make a linux-version of CreateSynchronicity ?

Comment by rizwan ahmed (2014-03-21 06:21:09) Post reply

very good software
but it will be more useful if it is possible to select and put profiles in group and then run the sync on that group or schedule it.

Awesome app, thanks.
Would be good if you could keep it in the system Tray with Shortcut List to Run each Backup. Or allow for more granular scheduling... Hourly would be nice. Mainly being able to run it from the tray would be good, cause its a pain to find and run the app and then click the profile each time.

Love the software. Easy to setup and understand. Worked great for mirroring the 2-4TB drives we hold our data on.
I did notice an error in the log and was wondering if you could add a feature to ignore the deletion of certain folders/files on the right side - via check box or just a check box that ignores deletion of system files on the right side?
I mirror root drive to root drive. I get this every-time a sync completes.
Error \\\AllData\$RECYCLE.BIN Access to the path '\\\AllData\$RECYCLE.BIN' is denied.
It's a minor annoyance to an otherwise GREAT software.
I looked for a way to turn this off. However, the exclude areas are greyed out when I enable mirroring.
Thank You,

Could you add the ability to auto sync more frequently, e.g. hourly / half hourly? In rest is an excelent program.

Nice program.
Would be even better, if it could be scheduled to run the last thing of the day. That way a person could walk away, and have it sync files and when completed , log out of Windows and shut down the computer automatically.
Keep up the good work.

I am only just starting to test the program. Looks nice and useful. Thank you.
It will be a great enhancement to the program if there is a setting to password protect the destination or backup folder, especially on a USB or an external drive.

Just use a truecrypt volume on your USB drive as the backup destination. That will likely be more secure than anything the author could easily add to this software.

Love the program but I wish it had an option to "Clean Up" destination side first, then run.
Why? Because my backups sometimes have so much to do that there isn't enough space on the destination drive unless I manually delete files first. This would be best in the right click menu under preview and run. Thanks!

Comment by Joebo (2013-05-22 12:57:54) Post reply

Create Synchronicity is a great application; it does what it needs to without issue. I just have one complaint. When checking the 'show all icons and notifications' box in the Windows taskbar options, so Windows doesn't hide application icons on me, I get like 25 minutes of notification popups for all the backups that had occurred overnight, every morning. It would be great to have an option to turn notifications off.

Bonjour Clément !
je viens de decouvrir Synchronicity et je l'adore!
une suggestion serais de pouvoir le faire synchronizer plus souvent qu'un fois par 24h, genre a toutes les 15mins serait bien pour garder les dossier synchronizés plus rapidement.
Et une autre serais d'agrandir les fenetres pour montrer tout le texte, bcp de texte francais est coupé ou caché par la petitesse des fenetres. ou faire que le programme ce souvienne des dimensions et positions
et ouvrir sync si on double-clique sur l'icone a coté de l'heure.
mais a part, merci pour le bon programme. ca me rappelle un peu Live Mesh, juste un peu ;)

Very great software, if possible, you can add more features like:
- Automatically syncing after a few time such as: 5 minutes, 10 minutes, etc...
- Allows choosing network drive when choosing source or destination.
I think if you want you can win! Good luck and successful!

Reply by Clément (Create Software) (2013-02-25 22:17:18) Post reply

Hi Long, thanks for your message! You can choose a network drive as the source or destination using the following syntax : \\DriveName\FolderName. For example, I use \\DNS323\Volume_1\ or \\\Volume_1 on my own network.

Reply by Long (2013-02-26 01:34:20) Post reply

Ok, Thanks a lot for your guide, however, issue is when we choose source/destination, dialog "Browse For Folder" does not have item: My Network Places. This will make your software more wonderful! And more, i have found some of errors like: wrong word "Succeded" or "Succeeded" in log file. And i cannot sync with error: " E:\MailStore\Outlook.pst | The process cannot access the file because another process has locked a portion of the file. " when i am opening MS Outlook. If you have time, i suggest the new feature: Send email to Admin at the specific time about data backup processing. I have used very many softwares but your software is best! I am sorry because using free program that requires so much! Good for life, many thanks!

Comment by ToolmakerSteve (2012-12-13 02:48:39) Post reply

Very handy, thx. Would like an option to ignore (don't delete) new top level sub-folder added to right side (destination). For now I use "Incremental", but that means I don't get deletions of obsolete files in the other folders. E.g. when Change Settings, expand right-side tree, be able to checkmark a folder "F1" that won't be touched. Or alternatively, suppress deletions in "F1" (do incremental w/i it), even when select "mirror".

Comment by captenbk (2012-12-09 03:05:35) Post reply

Love the simplicity of the program, but it seems to sometimes recopy files already in my destination ("right side"). I use this to sync various local drives to network drives (properly mapped in Windows). It does work, just seems to recopy some of the files when syncing (instead of skipping them and just deleting files not in destination and copying new files). Perhaps I'm just doing something wrong.

Comment by Samuel (2012-12-02 18:10:07) Post reply

When doing incremental backing up, does CS overwrite old versions of the files or does it keep older versions, so that one can roll back changes? From my small test it appears that the former is true -- i.e. CS's "incremental" backup really just updates the full backup each time. Is that right?

Comment by Michael (2012-12-02 06:19:38) Post reply

I believe I have found a bug in the program's behavior. Here is an example. I check my entire "Users" folder under Windows 7 to back up all users data and automatically back up all data from any new users that are created in the future. I leave every subfolder checked. I then go under one user's folder and un-check his "Videos" folder because he uses it for scratch files which are too big and don't need to be backed-up. Un-checking this folder causes newly created users folders NOT to be backed-up, regardless that the base "Users" folder is checked! I have tried other examples, too. Any time you un-check a folder, if any new folders are created one directory level above, they will not be backed-up, even if the base folder is checked! How can I work around this? Am I doing something wrong? Thank you so much!

Good little program. Ideal for creating thumb drives of my music library for the car.
Would be nice to see it have the ability to add the Label of the thumb drive to the project and verify the thumb drive by label. Works well with out though at times I'm an idiot so I'm thinking of how to "Dave" proof it!

Hi Dave! You can use "Dave's USB"\Music as your destination path to let Create Synchronicity infer the drive letter from the name of the drive.

Wonderful program. Only thing that currently bugs me is using "Discard after:2" and "Replicate Empty Directories:False". This still creates the entire directory structure in the mirror directory; even if that directory had no modified files in the last 2 days.
Would be super helpful if empty folders in the mirror are deleted during the 'clean-up' process when "Replicate Empty Directories:False" is set to false.

Geoffrey (2011-10-04 03:49:03) requested "It would be nice to be able to include files that have changed within, say, the last x days in the backup procedure, i.e. files modified more than x days would be ignored in the sync." and indeed it was implemented a few weeks later. Great! That was just what I needed, except ... I need to be able to specify "Ignore files last modified earlier than yyyy-mm-dd" i.e., specify a calendar date rather than xx days ago. The reason is that I do disk clones every 3 months or so and want to use Synchronicity to do daily incremental backups since the last disk clone. Please??

Thanks for a nifty utility! Looks great and works great! Just a tip for others who may have a similar setup: I had initial problems syncing from my Vista PC to my Linux server over Samba, as CS was pretty aggressive in selecting a lot of files for backing up that hadn't been modified. I unchecked the exact timing checkbox, allowing for a few second variation in timestamps and voila, problem solved. Great product, thanks!
