ProUpdater v5.0, Open Window's latest release of its highly regarded file backup and synchronization program, makes it easy to set up a customized backup routine to protect your irreplaceable data files. In addition, the program excels at the task of keeping your various machines "in synch". Using this double-threat capability, the user can set up a backup routine and a multiple-machine synchronization system with one review of their file system.
ProUpdater can handle up to 1000 directories, each containing up to 5000 files in a single "Update" operation! Using the Batch File mode, dozens of Update operations may be chained together and launched with a single button push. Because ProUpdater is designed to intelligently backup or synchronize only those files that have changed, it is extremely fast. A backup of thousands of files may be maintained in under a minute making it much less of a chore to keep your data safe. The program is also compatible with the Windows Task Scheduler and can be set to run automatically, accomplishing your backup and synchronization operations unattended.
ProUpdater will work with any Windows-compatible network and can be an indispensable tool for the harried network administrator. The program is perfect for the power user or IS professional with complex file synchronization and manipulation tasks, but its easy-to-use interface makes it an accessible tool for the average user as well.
ProUpdater can be configured to perform backup operations, directory re-alignment operations, general multi-computer "house-cleaning" and a host of other tasks requiring efficient operation on files based on their names, extensions, sizes, ages and attributes.
Most options may be stored on a directory-by-directory basis, within the source directory itself, assuring that the appropriate settings will always be used when servicing that particular directory.

DISCLAIMER AND LICENSE AGREEMENT
Users of ProUpdater accept this disclaimer of warranty:
ProUpdater is supplied as is. Open Window Software disclaims all warranties, expressed or implied, including, without limitation, the warranties of merchantability and of fitness for any purpose. Open Window Software assumes no liability for damages, direct or consequential, which may result from the use of Updater.
ProUpdater is a "shareware program" and is provided at no charge to the user for evaluation. Feel free to share it with your friends, but please give them the original PUPD8R.EXE setup file so that they will have all of the necessary support files and the benefit of automated program installation. The essence of "user-supported" software is to provide personal computer users with quality software without high prices, and yet to provide incentive for programmers to continue to support and enhance their products. If you find this program useful and wish to continue to use ProUpdater after the trial period (30 days or 30 uses, whichever is LONGER), you must make a registration payment of $39.95 (plus S&H) to Open Window Software.
For individuals ONLY, the registration fee will license one copy for use on any one computer at any one time. You must treat this software just like a book. An example is that this software may be used by any number of people and may be freely installed on multiple computers, so long as there is no possibility of it being used at one location while it's being used at another - just as a book cannot be read by two different persons at the same time.
For corporate, institutional or government use, the registration fee covers a single, non-server, machine per license only. Open Window Software offers a substantial discount on multiple-copy licenses.
While distribution of the intact shareware version is encouraged, users are prohibited from distributing registered copies of the software. In addition, users may not modify the program's executable file in any way.
Anyone distributing ProUpdater for a fee of any kind must read the conditions in the PAD_FILE.XML file distributed with this application.
