Long before the coming of external hard disks and large capacity external storage devices, synchronizing files between one computer and another was one of the major problems computer users faced. There was also the problem of losing valuable data to the failure of hard drives.To synchronize files between two different computers, the usual approach was to copy the files from the computer of interest and transfer it to the other. Advanced Flash Synchronizer (AFS) was specifically developed to deal with this problem.

Advanced Flash Synchronizer
- Advanced Flash Synchronizer has interesting features. One of them is that it copies only files that have changed to the external drive. What this means is that you copy more with a small capacity external device.
- The Advanced Flash Synchronizer performs this crucial task by storing the sizes and modification dates of the target files on both computers on the flash drive. When you insert the flash drive, only the files that have been modified since the last session of the synchronization will be copied.
- This software has a wide compatibility across Windows Operating system. This includes WinME, Win98, WinXP, WinNT 4.x, Windows 2003, Windows 2000, and all the Windows Vista operating systems. The minimum requirement for Advanced Flash Synchronizer to work on your system is 500 MHz Processor speed, 10 MB Hard disk space, 128 MB RAM, and a USB flash drive of 64 MB.
- Advanced Flash Synchronizer is a product of URL Toy Software. The trial version of this version is available for free download but if you need the unlimited edition with all its features, this would cost you $24.95.
- It gave the operator the opportunity to optionally delete files from the local drives and send them to the Recycle Bin of the computer.
- While Advanced Flash Synchronizer is running, the USB flash drive is blocked from being ejected so that your synchronization is not interrupted.
- The bug where Advanced Flash Synchronizer cannot be started if there is no flash drive plugged-in was fixed to allow the user to peruse the software without pugged-in flash drives.
- The problem with synchronizing one folder was also fixed.
Two more upgrades came in 2007 namely the version 1.4 on 18 April 2007 and the version 1.5 which came in the last quarter of the year on 23rd October 2007. The rate of updates declined subsequently after the version 1.5.
The next version, Version 1.6, came almost a year later on the 8th of October 2008. The last update that ever came to Advanced Flash Synchronizer was the Version 1.7 on 26th of January 2009. There are a few alternatives currently available that offer similar features as Advanced Flash Synchronizer that are still under development.
Software like Advanced Flash Synchronizer remains viable to this present day. Backing up data is a very crucial activity that should be undertaken every once in a while. In fact, some experts suggest that you synchronize your data as often as once a week to prevent the colossal loss of valuable data.
