Best data synchronising tool for busy world

2019-09-13

Synchronizing and backup are very imported for my job because I deal with a lot of project-related documents and these documents are the most important part to increase the businesses of my shipbuilding company.

Pros

Also, there are many tool end to end encryptions, real-time data transfer, block-level data transfer, and version history control besides synchronizing.

Cons

Sever license price is very high when compared with other licensing options. Sometimes for some types of file synchronizing speed is low.

Great software. Some quirks.

2018-01-16

Pros

Overall, this is an excellent utility that is quite versatile! The interface is fairly intuitive, and the options and features list cover pretty much any normal file sync scenario you would run into.

Cons

From time to time it would crash randomly. No real indication as to what exactly would cause it, and tough to pin down a repeatable error.

The only tool that is required for Sync and Backup

2018-06-23

When we have too much data it is really easy to forget back up or sync.

Pros

No need to have different tools for different jobs.

Cons

The way the data represented (conflicts, copy left to right and vice versa) and also the action that needs to be taken presented in a better way.

A product that does what it says - most of the time

2019-06-17

We do rely on the product as an alternative to One Drive, which we found to be completely unreliable. GoodSync is far more reliable, documents the work it is doing really well, and provides mechanisms to overcome issues more robustly.

Pros

The interface is great - comprehensive, giving you the details of what's going on Performance is great - doing live syncs happens quickly and does not degrade performance noticeably

Cons

The Central Management of clients also does not work when using a One Drive as a target for syncing.

GoodSync - Does Not Sync Extended Attributes and Tech Support Is Rude and Uninformed

2019-02-21

Applications from other companies support syncing Mac extended attributes over SMB to a NAS albeit with a worse UI and poor documentation.

Pros

GoodSync has a good UI that is intuitive and the manual is excellent.

Cons

I politely pressed the point and tried to get the request escalated but the tech just blew it off.

After extensively trying GoodSync and other similar syncing software, I have found the app to marry.

2017-11-01

My stuff is in perfect sync and so are my backup drives!

Pros

Menu design, the option control is probably my favorite because I am very technical so I need the control over everything and all know what it's talking about.

Cons

I suppose it can have a more simplified user interface?

GoodSync is a great way to implement a 3-2-1 backup solution.

2018-10-09

GoodSync is a great file backup management application that makes it easy to backup my files.

Pros

I can easily set it up for unattended backup and have email alerts sent in case of a problem.

Cons

I don't have any issues with the software, but the settings could be a bit more descriptive to ensure I know what they do.

Great software

2018-01-16

it's easy to use, sync process is transparent , no need for third party apps to run the software as a service

Pros

Unlike Onedrive , SPSYNC etc you can actually see where Goodsync is up to in the sync process. The run in unattended mode (as a service) is great too!

Instead of saving data on 2-3 places, I can sync different clouds, save spaces.

2018-04-08

It saves a lot of time for me.

Pros

Everything that I need about my backup data. I desperately needed to sync it to cloud and back to my PC without any other software installation.

Cons

Free utilities are also present, but with same features, and automatic exception handling can really cause problem sometimes.

Solved our problem - reliably

2019-06-21

Given that none of the entities involved would allow inbound connections, and that the data was 'sensitive' in nature, we needed a solution that would be reliable, automated, secure, etc. and that would 'phone home' on a regular schedule.

Pros

Flexible - we can configure just about any parameter needed to setup a bi-directional sync, or just a backup. Easy - being able to select which files and folders, browse local and remote directories, etc. is all intuitive.

Cons

Rarely - but on 0ccasion, we would get a sync conflict that causes the process to stop. It would be nice if it had the ability to realize it was hung (hadn't progressed in 24 hours or whatever) and restart. But this has been less that half-dozen times in 3 years across 25 remote locations.
