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.

"Product great. Company policy deceptive."

January 26, 2012  |  By jwhitcomb198

 |  Version: GoodSync 9.0

Pros

Product great.

Cons

Company policy deceptive. Used to provide ready info about what products you had registered. Used to be able to determine if you were eligivble for free upgrades. Same with their "Roboform". Now they force you to download the upgrade before the tell you if you can get the free upgrade. You either need to uninstall (& hope it reverts correctly) or PAY THEM MONEY. You should be able to tell BEFORE the download/ upgrade.

Summary

"good, but amazing ressource leaks"

January 25, 2012  |  By marie-helene

 |  Version: GoodSync 9.0

Pros

I used and love this product for years, for multiple backup plan, and really liked the interface.

Cons

I noticed incredible ressources leaks. (often around 250 000 ko) Contacted support but they says it is beause of other software. (dropbox or else).

Option and sheduling are a little complicated (many sub menu and so.

Everyweek there is a new version (lot of installation involved)

Summary

As told I noticed incredible ressources leaksoften around 250 000 ko) wichi freeze my PCContacted support but everytime theyx blame it on aheanother software. (dropbox or else) Which is pointless.

No solution offered than to desinstall (other) software, which I tryed. So I am lookin for another sync software

"Great product for techies!"

January 11, 2012  |  By Peabody_II

 |  Version: GoodSync 9.0

Pros

Versatile, reliable, can recover from mistakes, has a "portable" version (USB based).

Cons

Not so easy to understand for non-techies.

Summary

If you're a techie, this is a great back-up and/or sync program. One of the best I've seen. If you're not tech-savvy, it's still good, because you can recover from errors (don't lose file versions by accident) but you'll have a "learning curve" for it.

"Rely on it to keep my work files synced and backed up"

January 04, 2012  |  By bmws8aft

 |  Version: GoodSync 9.0

Pros

easy to set up and use.

Cons

I have found in the past that sometimes that it had missed sub-folders. I think this issue has been ironed out in one of the numerous updates.
Not sure why they update so often?

Summary

Can't think of a better software currently to do the job.
