By default I have found that synchronisation doesn't work. It is necessary to right click on the appropriate folder beneath subscriptions, choose Folder Properties then make sure that "Synchronize this folder with NewsGator" is checked.

You're probably aware of this but I thought I'd mention it just in case. :)

Forgive me if everyone knows this, I didn't so thought it worth mentioning in case it helps someone with their decision.

I purchased FeedDemon (and therefore obtained a free NewsGator premium account) a short while ago because I liked the way the application looked, ran and presented its data. However, it wasn't until after this that I became aware of the most useful (to me) feature - that is synchronisation.

In a nutshell this is how it works (depending on various preferences but generally as it comes by default):
I have FeedDemon on 2 PCs - one at home - one at work.
If I subscribe to a feed at work it is automatically subscribed at home and vice-versa, same with unsubscribing.
If I launch FeedDemon at work and there are 100 items in a group, I read 50 of them then go home, the 50 I read at work do not show as new items, only the 50 unread.

This is so useful to me as I read my feeds at both places and, to my mind, it isn't that well publicised as a feature of the software. I know it is mentioned but it didn't really sink with me until after I made the purchase.

I would imagine for this to work you would need the premium NewsGator account which I suppose makes FeedDemon not really free if synchronisation is important.

You'd need good anti-virus protection and I'm not sure I'd be downloading any open-sores software.

I think it's funny too.

Mind you I got into trouble with the wife at home when a chap called Ed Balls came on the TV and I laughed so much I had to leave the room. My 7 year old son however failed to see what was so funny.

I'm currently testing FileHamster at the moment and agree with previous posters that, for a single developer, it is a good solution.

Just thought I'd pass on details though of another product which I use called Developer's Backup It is basically a zipping utility but the way it allows you to set up backup plans and exclude file patterns makes it very convenient to use.

Give it a try, it's free with a condition that you register every 90 days, or shareware at a reasonable price. I paid for my version and use it all the time.
