Mark,
I don't get the reference. I searched it, it comes back some Backup/Sync software.

For the Record: SQLite Expert (Free and Pro) Are Delphi apps kept current. Works well, skinned.
TreeSize (Free and Pro) I use all the time to see where my drive space is wasted! (Delphi).

But it appears to be fading. Although my current upgrade project is such a pleasure to work with.
I used Visual Form Inheritance, and was able to Adjust the "DBGridToXlsx" in one spot for every place it was used, so all grids save to the newer versions of XLSX with color coding options, etc. Lightning fast.

I also realized I upgraded 3 other components, and 5 versions of Delphi [It's been ~6 years since working on the code], and it was all rather clean and easy.

The EXE Size is my biggest complaint these days. Delphi used to produce a product we could ship on a single floppy. Now the EXE Sizes are approaching 30MB. At least I don't have to worry about DLLs.

Oh, my other complaint is the FPC and Lazarus. Because it has splintered our market so much, ALL of the 3rd party vendors left $IFDEF$ the crap out of their code to support everything.

But I have a project coming up, that needs to run on Android Phones... I am looking forward to that!
