PathSync vs. SyncToy

Dear Lazyweb,

Please compare and contrast PathSync and SyncToy.

Your busy pal,

Synctoy might be pretty useful for a lot of people. It has a nice wizard, if you like that sort of thing.
But for my needs (as an ASP.Net developer uploading frequent updates and patches) it is clumsy, slow and bloated.

PathSync is fast, straightforward and no frills. If you figure out the filename mask syntax, you can make some pretty complex configurations. It doesn't look at the contents of files, though, so if file size hasn't changed, you can only compare by date, which isn't always useful.
