Don’t wait for disk failure

GoodSync synchronizes and backs up files such as photos, financial documents, MP3s, e-mails between desktops, laptops, servers, and external drives.
GoodSync is the latest software in a series of highly reliable, easy-to-use products from Siber Systems, the makers of RoboForm. It uses an innovative synchronization algorithm that offers true bi-directional synchronization.

GOODSYNC AUTOMATION
Goodsync can set automated tasks created by the user. These tasks can be created with a variety of syncing options. This is the part where I think the beginning user should be carefull in his or her choices.
The wrong choice can make data seem gone when you do not opt for incremental syncing.
Goodsync keeps a backup ( gs-data ) in a special created map, where you can recover files. It is the overwhelming amount of options that make this utility not suitable fort he mac-novice but it is especially suitable to companies and experienced users. All created tasks can be exported, so whenever you feel the need of a clean OSX install or re-install Goodsync, just one click will import all your tasks ready for action.

GOODSYNC in PRACTICE

When all tasks have been setup, Goodsync works really well .
The interface is not as intuitive as some competitors, and is due to the amount of options.
Another good and usefull feature is the logging of all actions. A logging which shows errors should they occur for any reason.
Block-level sync really speeds things up. Compression is only done in NTFS.

VERDICT

Goodsync is one of the best utilities for experienced users and companies. Its versatile and offers loads of options. A good interface and task description help you making the right choice.
You just can’t go wrong using GoodSync a solid and reliable performer. Goodsync Desktop for Mac or Goodsync2Go for use with an portable (usb) drive makes your choice complete.

Very reliable and their support is fantastic. *****
