Johnshope FTP & Folder Sync
is a tool designed to help with synchronizing FTP services with the local folders typically used with it. The tool requires installation, but the operation is quick, uneventful and does not require any special attention from users. The program does not come with an interface per se and it can be run via Command Line.
Following the installation, users will notice that the application includes two different executables, namely sync35 and sync4. The executables are especially designed to run with specific versions of Windows and they indicate the .NET Framework. Therefore, sync35 is supposed to work with Windows 7, whereas sync4 should be compatible with Windows 8.
The URLs supported by the tool can be both local paths as well as FTP or FTPS links. The latter support options, take the form of parameter values and can be delimited by the ‘&’ symbol. The developer points out that the connection options solely work when an int value is specified to limit the number of concurrent connections.
It is worth mentioning that the application includes a Manual located in the installation folder, so users who are not familiar with this type of apps or perhaps want to learn more about its capabilities should not hesitate to check it out.
