This preview version is a "rolling" release so it will require direct internet access to download the latest patches.

You can install and use the preview version in parallel to the release version, in this case:

  • For Windows, make sure to use the Portable bundle. The installer won't work for such a setup.
  • The preview version (except of the portable Windows bundle) will initially copy the settings from the release version, but writes them to its own settings directory. This means that settings of both versions will diverge.

What's new in SmartSynchronize 4 preview 7?

Dual-Pane File Manager

SmartSynchronize 4 now comes with a built-in dual-pane file manager ("commander") which can be used to easier select files and directories to compare, but also use for daily file tasks. There is (nearly) no usable dual-pane file manager available that works on all major platforms (Linux, macOS and Windows), so we decided to write one.

You can copy, move, delete, pack and unpack archives (zip, tar.gz are supported directly, 7z needs a 7z executable), view, open in editors or terminal.

Recent files history

Recent files history (Ctrl+P), Favorites

For file managers quick navigation to often used directories is a key feature. SmartSynchronize supports favorites, but also remembers recently visited directories, so it becomes easy to navigate to them by starting to type the name.

Favorites optionally can remember their sorting mode independent of the global sorting mode, so you can see, e.g., your long Downloads directory always sorted by time.

Simple File Search

A simple recursive file search is supported to quickly find a file by its name or content.

Really dark theme on Windows 10.

Dark Theme

On Windows 10 the dark theme also supports dark scrollbars, dark menu, dark title and dark context menus.
