Beta: Easy2Sync for Files 1.25

Wednesday, November 28th, 2007

If synchronizing your files has been too difficult with any software so far, you should try the beta version of Easy2Sync for Files. The “New task” assistant has undergone a major rework to make it very easy to set up a synchronization task.

Especially sharing a folder can be difficult on a Windows PC, but it’s always necessary for a file synchronization. The new release makes this a lot easier by proving a wizard that helps you choose and share the right folder.

Preview/ReplyButler: New text module icons

Monday, November 26th, 2007

Text modules can be assigned icons in ReplyButler. This helps you organize (and recognize) your canned texts. And here’s a glimpse on how that will look like in the next release:

Text module icons

Quite a lot eh? We’ve added quite a few and reorganized the old icons into some new groups. So, if you want to send a customer a compressed document and have a text module explaining how to handle such a file, simply assign the matching icon (in the topright corner) to that text and it will be easier for you to find it again.

How to synchronize your Opera Bookmarks for free

Sunday, November 25th, 2007

Opera is a great (free) browser. If you like it, too, you may want to synchronize your bookmarks between different computers. Since Opera stores all bookmarks in a single file, you can easily synchronize that with the Freeware Edition of Easy2Sync for Files. Forever, if you like, as the Freeware Edition doesn’t contian a time limit.

Easy2Sync has a special assistant for task that synchronize just one file:
Sync file

By default Opera’s bookmark file is named opera6.adr and is stored in C:\Program files\Opera\Profile (even though the path may be different on your system). To set up the task just drag the file from the local and the (shared) remote path into this dialog. When synchronzing, please note that Opera modifies the file every time you use a bookmark, so it’s best to synchronize often. 😉

Free file sync

Give it a try with our Freeware Edition of Easy2Sync for Files.

Now, we’ve published them and you can download our collection of 55 text modules that can be used directly in Outlook, conveniently organized in 18 folders.

So, even if ReplyButler isn’t Freeware, these text modules are. And you can even use them in ReplyButler after the ReplyButler’s 30-day trial period has expired.

Protect your file sync configuration

Thursday, November 8th, 2007

Easy2Sync for Files offers plenty of configuration options. And if you’re the tech guy who did the job of configuration it for somebody else you may want to protect your work against accidental misconfiguration by the user.

Password protection

This can be done easily with Easy2Sync. You can protect the tasks (which contain the file sync information), the options, the service configuration, the start of the sync software or of a sync task. Well, practically everything. And you can display an information message (like “don’t do this yourself, call us instead”) and / or demand a password.

Want to have a test drive? Then try our Freeware Edition. It fully supports the passwords feature.

Back from the ESWC

Monday, November 5th, 2007

I spent this weekend at the European Software Conference in Cologne and heard quite a lot of interesting things about Software. So watch out some changes in the future. 😉

By the way, not everything was absolutely serious deadly serious. Here’s Marck Pearlstone and Michael Lehman perfoming “Image just one browser”.

Unexpected songs at the ESWC

By the way, there are already some changes to see on our site. We’ve change the ReplyButler (our Outlook boilerplate add-in) main page. Here are the new and the old versions. If you’d like to comment, please send us an e-mail. (BTW: These links may be outdated in future, when we’ve finished our testing. In that case, simply use the ReplyButler homepage.)
