Microsoft SyncToy 2.0 beta released

SyncToy 2.0Microsoft has released SyncToy 2.0 beta. Like its predecessor, SyncToy 2.0 is a free download that lets you synchronize files across multiple folders and/or computers.

But there are a few new features under the hood:
  • Dynamic drive letter assignment: change a drive letter and SyncToy will automatically pick up on the change
  • SyncToy now detects and synchronizes folder deletions, renamings, and creation
  • Exclude files based on names
  • Filter by file attributes like read-only, system, or hidden
  • Sync encrypted files
  • Rename folder pairs
This is still beta software, so if you crave stability, you might want to stay away. But SyncToy was already a pretty awesome tool for sharing or backing up data. And SyncToy 2.0 seems to offer some nice improvements.
