Our organization used Be In Sync for a little while. I really like the
product in as far as a) very responsive folks, you can call up any time b)
they store stuff on their servers, so you can access your files through a
browser. But. I had serious usability issues from some of my customers. Files
didn't sync, or the app would quit or you had to restart your whole machine
to get the app back up again after closing it and on and on. Finally went to
FolderShare where I am still a newbie - but it seems much more stable, if
much less functional. As this solution is at the core of our business, I'm a
little concerned about the comments I read on Microsoft not improving on
this app and it being down for months at a stretch. I guess we'll just keep
our fingers crossed and see.
Anyway, just wanted to let you know first hand BIS feedback.
We are running Vista, and that might not have helped either.
