    I realize Transmit is just a workalike for proper rsync in this mode, so I need a GUI for local->local rsync.

    I need this this a few times a year and SUCK at remembering switches. And no, I can't script it (properly) because my needs always change. Whether it's making an extra backup of my Lightroom files, syncing changes from an external hard drive to my "real" Lightroom library, or even copying my music collection to an external disk for travel, I constantly find myself with incomplete file transfers, and Finder is no good at redoing them properly without me holding it's hand.

    So... a simple rsync gui. Hell, a curses GUI would be enough, but I don't want to have to google or use man to use it...

    ChronoSync would be perfect for this purpose.

    Yes... but it costs $50 and rsync is free.
