I am looking for a file synchronization utlity for the mac.

I tried "File Synchronization" by Logiciels Nemesys Software
But I found it very weak.

I am looking for a powerful tool that I can use to sync files and folders.

I have tried http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/system_disk_utilities/filesynchronization.html

Not that powerfull and when I do two syns in a row it keeps trying to syn something that has already been synced. Plus slow

This once seems to simple I need stuff with some kick

Commercial grade doesn't mean you have to pay for it.  An active open source project usually has a more responsive community and support, and (if necessary) you can fix it yourself

Just try getting Microsoft to fix something.

Synchronize between what and where exactly?
One way? Two way?

If it is between networked computers, Dropbox (www.dropbox.com) is my favorite, although it has it's limitations.

Maybe Synchronize Plus is what you're looking for. I haven't used it recently but in the past it did pretty well what it needed to do. http://www.qdea.com/pages/pages-syncx/syncx1.html
