GoodSync

CNET Editors' review

Thanks to this program's step-by-step tips, managing your files and folders is as simple as a few clicks of your mouse. GoodSync successfully synchronized important files between folders on our computer, as well as on our USB device.

To a novice, the user interface might appear a bit overwhelming; however, step-by-step pop-up windows will quickly guide you through navigating the program. All we had to do was browse for the two folders that we wanted to synchronize. We were even able to browse for files on external devices, including a USB thumb drive. The program quickly analyzed our folders and displayed their contents into two separate panels. We were able to pick out the specific files to include in the synchronization and, using the Sync feature, we synced the folders so that they each contained the same files. We were able to view all of the changes, as well as any conflicts or errors. You can apply filters using the Program Options menu.

The program doesn't include a built-in help feature, but it does feature an online manual and FAQ through the publisher's Web site, and the 30-day trial is more than enough time to find your bearings. We highly recommend this file synchronization tool for all user levels.

    "Too strict/rigorous activation limit"

    December 15, 2013  |   By r3viewer

    Version: GoodSync 7.9

    Pros

    Although my extremely low rating, the product has the following pros:
    - very stable
    - syncs fast
    - has many options (Not just unnecessary options, they can be really helpful!)

    Cons

    This my biggest problem, I re-image my pc from clean base image very often. The problem is they limit the activation in a very strict way.
    Once you have exceeded the activation limit you have to contact helpdesk and explain.
    In my situation they assumed they detected multiple different activations on different pc's. Which was NOT the case I had to argue my case to get my activation limit back.

    It does not matter how good an application is, when there is such a tight activation limit.

    Illegal versions are for grabs on the net, but when a user PURCHASES it's licenses it is "punished" by such a strict activation limit.
    This makes no sense to me.

    Summary

    Be warned about the activation limit...

    I hope someone within goodsync reads this and takes this up within the dev team.

    "Good But Issues. ."

    October 1, 2009  |   By stellhorn

    Version: GoodSync 7.9

    Pros

    Goodsync Demo seems to work fine with simple sync of work station to a backup destination. Demo version also worked on windows server 2003,

    Screen designs are some of the best I have seen on sync software.

    Cons

    working with the Goodsync Demo on Windows 2003 server pulling data from other remote servers. Sync is working ok on transfering the data, I had issues with Autostart not starting jobs and the syncing of folder security settings not coming accross.

    Summary

    I did purchase the Pro version only to find out it does not work at all on a server, unlike other sync programs I have used. I am in the process of trying to get a refund or a credit towards the purchase of the server license.

    I opened a ticket with Goodsync concerning server demo issues and am unalble to get answers to my emails that contain more then 1 question. Answers seem to be generic in nature and I questioned if the emails were answered via a computer system.

    I did get a phone number after 3 emails for tech support, When I contacted them they were not able answer questions and referred me to someone else for servers. I then left a voice message with no response in over 24 hours.

    I am doing my best to purchase the $1,200.00 server software, They are just not able to give me the support I need at this time in answering my questions on if it will work the way I am expecting it to.

    "It's so simple to use."

    September 8, 2009  |   By der-berliner

    Version: GoodSync 7.9

    Pros

    It's so simple to use. I got it so I could back up my PST file from outlook, but I'f found other uses for it too now.

    Cons

    I find it a bit complicated and don't really understand what it is doing most of the time. I know it backs up my PST file though and I'm happy at that.

    Summary

    I like the simplicity of use, but I would like an explanation of what some files are and what the program is doing, (or about to do!) It's a lifeline for me though.

    "Great! Product lives up to it's claims!"

    September 7, 2009  |   By davidh

    Version: GoodSync 7.9

    Pros

    Speed, efficiency and accuracy.

    Cons

    Definition of terms in help system make you dig more than you should have to.

    Summary

    This program really works and it is simple enough for the novice to be up and running quickly. However the best part about this is Siber Systems. When you talk to them about issues you may have they listen instead of trying to spend all their time telling you how "the problem you are experiencing is not their fault". Irresponibility in software is a big consumer problem.

    Three cheers for Siber Systems.
