@Max SyncUp helps you take care of your data by providing you with an extremely customizable way of transferring your important files to another location. The software comes free of charge and supports local backups as well as Web-based ones like FTP and Google Drive. You can even set up two PCs that have the app installed to talk to each other and transfer files back and forth.
Three transfer profiles: @Max SyncUp lets you run three types of transfers -- backups from your computer to another storage device; backups from an external device to your computer; and a bidirectional backup that is essentially synchronization. Each profile is extremely customizable when it comes to automation, file filters, and encryption.
Fast: We copied 3.42GB of data in a little over seven minutes over a USB 2.0 port, using a backup scheme where the data on our thumb drive automatically copied to our PC whenever we connected that thumb drive.
Network support: If you have two PCs running the software, you can set them up so they can transfer files back and forth, not only on local Wi-Fi, but also over the Internet. The downside is that firewall and router configuration is required. As a cloud alternative, you can also set up a backup to a WebDAV, an FTP server, and even to Google Drive.
Limited cloud storage support: Currently there is support for only one cloud storage destination -- Google Drive. If you're using any of the other services like Dropbox, Box, or OneDrive, you're out of luck.
@Max SyncUp manages to provide very powerful features in a very logical and straightforward manner. This versatile application is a must-try for anyone who is looking to set up their own syncing or backup solution. Let's just hope that more cloud storage destinations will be supported in future versions.
From @MAX Software:
@MAX SyncUp is a handy, feature-rich tool for backing up and synchronizing data on a local network or over the Internet. @MAX SyncUp provides a wide range of destinations for your backups, including USB-portable devices, elsewhere in your local network, (S)FTP or WebDAV-servers, Google Drive, OneDrive or Dropbox cloud storage. @MAX SyncUp allows you to execute various backup-strategies. Particularly, you can create backups in Apple Time Machine style with the use of hard links, allowing you to keep versions of the same files at different dates. This combines the facilities of a full backup with the effectiveness of an incremental backup. You can also back up and synchronize data between two computers directly using the RSync-like algorithm, which detects and transfers only the changed parts of files, reducing data traffic and transfer time. The data is encrypted and transferred from one computer to another without any intermediaries, and is not kept in cloud storage. Consequently, there is no threat of unauthorized access to your information. In addition, synchronization without intermediaries helps you to save money; you do not have to pay a cloud storage fee. @MAX SyncUp synchronizes your computers quickly and effectively. Simply having an Internet connection is enough to keep your data up-to-date. @MAX SyncUp is also exceptionally easy to use; the step-by-step setup wizard guides you through the whole configuration process. The program provides you with the ability to browse the contents of backup archives, perform quick file searches, and restore files in a few clicks. There are many powerful features for advanced users, such as the smart filter system for selecting files, the ability to start the program as a Windows service, the option to copy ACL. With @MAX SyncUp, your data will be saved reliably and synchronized effectively, while minimizing time and data traffic.
What's new in this version:
The ability to filter files by date and size has been added.
It seems to like there are many sync-programs today but in fact to find really reliable soft is not easy at all. After the long search and reading of numerous reviews about different backup soft that program looks like as showing great promises.
I use it for the months and don't have any complaint still. I hope it'll continue...
Good soft for online backup to Google drive. The most important data are migrated to online storage using encryption the rest are backed up to external drive as compressed. All my requirements of files safety are full satisfied.
