What is the best software to synchronize folders in OS 9?
« on: June 22, 2016, 08:48:41 PM »
I managed to get my OS 9 G4 to connect to my Synology Diskstation.
What is the best software to synchronize folders in OS 9?
I am doing this because I can't network to my OS 10.9.5 mac.

What does "best" mean?
For sure there are several highly professional applications out there for doing backups.

A simple possibility would be Mac OS own "File Synchronisation", it is an option on the retail install CDs, if you donīt have it already around at your HD. There are other free tools like LaCies SilverKeeper. At least Version 1.1.3 is working well with Mac OS 9

Synchronize! Pro 4.3.1 (Compares 2 Folders and Copies files in either or both directions to Make the folder contents match, excellent for keeping backup folders in perfect sync)

If you want this one, I will find it and post it... It is already contained in the Full DAW install here

I think Toast also has a "Compare" tool as well. But you choose between folders and disks I think.
You'll find it in one of the menus.

u may want to look into netatalk server
that would allow your mac os9 machine to map a network drive + natively connect to your mac (via AFP)  theres many articles on achieving this but heres just one i just found on a quick search:
