Alternative File Transfer/Synchronization Tools

Recently, we published a bulletin about Thru, a file transfer/synchronization product. As well as the paid products mentioned in the bulletin, there's a whole range of free software and services that perform some or all of these roles.

One of our current favorites is FolderShare -- originally created by a company called ByteTaxi, which Microsoft acquired in 2005. FolderShare -- or to give its new full name, Windows Live FolderShare -- is a peer-to-peer service running on Windows and Mac OS.

It's fair to say that FolderShare went through a painful phase of unreliability under Microsoft's ownership, but seems to have settled down since.

About Ferris Research

Ferris Research studies messaging, and the control of electronic information. More specifically, we help IT staff evaluate and implement products and services that:

  • Provide messaging and collaborative technologies
  • Archive electronic information
  • Ensure compliance with corporate policy, industry regulations, and laws
  • Facilitate e-discovery, and contain its costs
  • Reduce the dangers of information leaks

Email is the most important type of electronic information that requires control today. Other important types include instant messages, Sharepoint teamspaces, images, voice, video, and miscellaneous desktop files.

We've been in business since 1990--longer than any other analyst firm in our field:

  • Clients include 300 of the world's 1,000 largest organizations, and computer vendors from the largest corporations to small startups
  • While other analysts have come and gone, we've published more than 200 formal reports and 1,100 short bulletins
  • Our news service covers more than 2,000 highly specialized announcements annually
  • We have nine experts in our research team, sharing many decades of experience in our core competencies

In short, our technology and industry depth helps you understand today's products, where they've come from and where they're going.
