Review: MacDropAny syncs folders for backup via online cloud-based services

Back up and sync folders on your Mac automatically through popular cloud-based file storage and sync services.

MacDropAny for Mac enables users with cloud-based backup drives to automatically update them. It is an easy-to-use program that performs well and works with most of the major cloud services.

As cloud-based backup begins to replace physical media like CDs, DVDs, or memory keys, programs to work with online storage are becoming more common. MacDropAny for Mac is free and installation is easy. At first startup, the program immediately initiates a menu where the user can select the folder from which to sync. Despite the lack of user instructions, the window was easy to use and similar to the Mac Finder. Once selected, the application changes menus to one for selecting the cloud service desired. These include Google Drive and Dropbox, among many others. The program then prompts the user to enter an access password and begins the synching process. After this initial use during testing, it then asked to download an updated version, which indicated some technical support was available. There were no additional options, but the synching did complete well and all of the selected files were properly located in the cloud drive during testing.

For users who are looking for an automatic synching application and are not in need of any other features, MacDropAny for Mac is a good choice.
