Browse the folders that you want to compare. First, click Compare and it will give you the comparison files. To sync both folders, click “Synchronize”. The default Synchronize will update both folders files, i.e. Both folders will be same after the Two-way sync. If you want, you can change the Synchronize option to mirror and update. Mirroring the two folders will make the mirror of the left folder to the right side folder and updating two folders will then copy all the new files from the left side folder to the right side folder. Other than these options you can also make your own custom rules of Synchronization.
