    "Some issues"

    August 04, 2013   |   By Art1120

    Version: BestSync 2013 (32-bit) 8.0.6.4

    Pros

    Really would be great if it worked properly.

    Cons

    1) Sometimes does not mirror properly by not deleting files on target. 2) Sometimes copies all files regardless of whether they are already on target. 3) Some menu items difficult to understand due to poor English (kind of like a lot of the rave reviews here).

    Summary

    Hope these bugs get fixed. Nice idea. Not really usable as is.

    "Absolutely LOVE Best sync"

    December 17, 2012   |   By nick146

    Version: BestSync 7.3.30

    Pros

    I've been using Bestsync to sync stuff down from my webservers for years. The thing it can do that most syncing programs can't, is allow incremental transfer. For instance, if I am syncing down my web server to my local computer via FTP, it can be set if there is a change in the file on the server, to back up the local one in a dated folder before overwriting.

    Cons

    None that I have found for my purposes

    "Great free backup tool"

    April 11, 2012   |   By Bvox2012

    Version: BestSync 7.2.01

    Pros

    Pretty solid functionality for free if you just need a backup tool. I really like the ability to preview the sync actions and the option to back up modified and deleted files. The paid version has some pretty advanced stuff that I don't need.

    Cons

    They should be really explicit about the functionality that is part of the trial. People that need them are probably pissed off after the trial is over.

    "A very easy tool to publish website"

    February 11, 2012   |   By denis-AA

    Version: BestSync 7.0.23

    Pros

    I have been using this tool to manage our websites for years. Just setup a FTP task for each site. When you want to update the site, just click the "Start" button, the task will detect the changes and upload the changed files automatically, and it is much faster than other similar software, because this tool can upload multiple files simultaneously. It is very simple, and save much of my time.

    Cons

    "Set and forget, easy-to-use"

    February 05, 2012   |   By JeanPP8

    Version: BestSync 7.0.22

    Pros

    You can setup as many sync-tasks as you need.
    Task can sync with local folder, backup local folder, sync local to FTP/FTPES/FTPS/SFTP/WebDAV/AmazonS3/Outlook/Windows Mail.
    And the tasks can be managed in group by Tab View.

    Cons

    A little complex to set tasks run one-by-one

    Summary

    Unique software that backup all the changed files.

    "Reliability and flexibility backup and synchronization"

    February 05, 2012   |   By markus-LL

    Version: BestSync 7.0.22

    Pros

    BestSync lets you create as many backup and synchronization tasks as needed, which you can save for later use. You can combine your hard disks, removable drives, and supported cloud servers in any way that fits you best, and synchronize or perform incremental backups of your data whenever you need. Actually, you can combine all of them if necessary, as BestSync can synchronize from multiple locations at once. All tasks can be scheduled to not interfere with your normal work, and you can even tell the program to shut down your computer when the task in hand has finished. Before performing any task, though, BestSync will show you an exhaustive report of all the files that will be copied, deleted, or re-written in the process.

    Cons

    No dislike

    Summary

    Probably the feature that has made BestSync to stand out from many other similar tools is the fact that all the files involved in a synchronization task are backed up first, and their names encrypted. If only for this extra safety measure, this is a backup and restore utility that deserves trying.
