    "Best file comparison and analysis synchronization tool."

    July 07, 2014   |   By snakyjake5

    Version: GoodSync 9.8.9.5

    Pros

    Can detect and discern file changes versus file corruption.
    Good comparison rules and analysis to detect changes.
    Good use of filters.

    Cons

    Minor con: Since Amazon S3 charges by storage used (stored and transmitted), I would like the software to tell me exactly what is being transmitted and stored. The software will tell me the storage, but not the transmitted. So far this hasn't been an expensive issue, but it is something I would like to monitor.

    The UI is full of powerful and useful information, but might be better organized.

    The file analysis is very advanced and can be complex depending on the rules used. This is going to require you learning and doing some experimentation. I did my experimentation, and it does work just like I want it to (and no other alternative has been able to do that).

    Summary

    What this software will do that few others will do is sync between my local files and files stored on Amazon S3 cloud by comparing file attributes and checksums. What I wanted to do is not only backup files to the cloud, but I wanted to detect when I had file corruption on my local hard drive. Detecting this can be tricky, because I also wanted to avoid false positives. So this software can detect legitimate changes and also detect corruption, signal to the user, suggest or automate an action.

    I've tried many other alternatives, and this has been the best.
