SyncMate allows you to synchronize data on your Mac with any mounted device: portable USB storage, Mac partition, any locally connected disk, FireWire hard drive disks, devices connected via USB cable, etc.

3. Select “Mounted device” connection:

4. Choose the device from the list and click “Continue” button:

5. The device will appear in SyncMate “Devices list” area. Now you can start synchronization.

1. Connect the device to your Mac.

2. The device will automatically appear in SyncMate “Devices list” area. Now you can start synchronization.


Mac partitions, hard drive disks

1. Click button, located in the upper right corner of SyncMate main screen. “Device connection Wizard” will be invoked.

2. Select “Mounted device” connection:

3. All Mac partitions and connected disks available for sync will be listed there:

4. Choose Mac partition/disk from the list and click “Continue” button.

Once the connection with the device, USB Flash drive, Mac partition or disk is established, the following synchronization options become available to you:

Notes:
1. When syncing contacts of Address Book/MS Entourage/MS Outlook 2011, events of iCal/MS Entourage/MS Outlook 2011, Mail notes, To Dos/Reminders, Entourage notes and Safari bookmarks from Mac to a data storage device, you actually create backup of the above listed entries. Now it will be easy to restore data (for example, in case of hard drive crash) or to move data (like contacts of Address Book) from one Mac to another, as the synced data is stored on a portable data storage and thus can be ported to any other computer.
2. Since FTP servers mounted as drives with the Finder in Mac OS X have read-only access, sync is available in one direction only – from drive to Mac folders and other Mac storages
