It's similar to GNU Stow, but it has no dependencies, is free of forced, confusing package management terminology (like stow dir, target dir, package), and supports both absolute and relative linking, linking into existing hierarchies, and access control for created links and directories. It also has a feature which makes it similar to cpio pass-through mode: it can take a list of files on stdin, and link only those files which occur in the list.
  • Remosync
    Remosync is a file synchronisation program that can mirror two directories either on the local disk or across a network.

With file monitoring and hardware detection features, USBSink is able to respond and act according to relevant events across the desktop.
  • Warsync

  • zsync
