Synchronize it! is a fully-functional folder comparison software. It allows the user to compare separate folders, folder trees and ZIP/RAR/ARJ archives.

1. User interface
Synchronize it! is available in English and German versions. The program has a single-panel user interface, displaying files from both folders. All functionality is available in toolbar buttons on the right side of the Synchronize it! window. The files are colored according to their status. The user can apply various filters to the displayed files and toggle between different sorting modes (sort by name, date, type or status).

The file filters allow the user to view only checked files, files from source/target folders, or matching files from both folders.

2. File management
Synchronize it! has powerful file management functionality. The start-up dialog allows the user to set the type of the compared files (new, matching files only, etc.) and use “file ignore” options. The user can also reduce the number of compared files by setting file filters (“Search mask”) or exclude entire un-matching subfolders.

3. Folder comparison
Synchronize it! can be used for comparing folders (including all subfolders), and ZIP/RAR/ARJ archives. The program allows copying files from the source folder to a target CD. The user can apply thorough comparison of all files, including same-sized files and files with similar timestamps.

Synchronize it! may be launched in “backup mode”. The user can also choose to delete the non-matching files to recycle bin. It is particularly useful, as the user can restore mistakenly removed files.
