Unison is a file-synchronization tool for Unix and Windows. It allows two
replicas of a collection of files and directories to be stored on different
hosts (or different disks on the same host), modified separately, and then

Unlike simple mirroring or backup utilities, Unison can deal with updates to
both replicas of a distributed directory structure. Updates that do not
conflict are propagated automatically. Conflicting updates are detected and

Unison allows you to either build a text only binary or a binary that will
use a graphical user interface:
To build the gtk2 graphical inteface binary (the default option):
To build a textonly binary:
