BestSync 2012

BestSync 2012

It automatically analyzes, synchronizes, and backs up your files
7.3.03 (See all)

BestSync is a comprehensive backup and synchronization tool known for its reliability and flexibility. Not only it is capable of performing accurate incremental backups of your files and Outlook e-mails, but this 2012 edition can also synchronize your local data with a WebDAV folder or an Amazon S3 bucket.

BestSync lets you create as many backup and synchronization tasks as needed, which you can save for later use. You can combine your hard disks, removable drives, and supported cloud servers in any way that fits you best, and synchronize or perform incremental backups of your data whenever you need. Actually, you can combine all of them if necessary, as BestSync can synchronize from multiple locations at once. All tasks can be scheduled to not interfere with your normal work, and you can even tell the program to shut down your computer when the task in hand has finished. Before performing any task, though, BestSync will show you an exhaustive report of all the files that will be copied, deleted, or re-written in the process.

Probably the feature that has made BestSync to stand out from many other similar tools is the fact that all the files involved in a synchronization task are backed up first, and their names encrypted. If only for this extra safety measure, this is a backup and restore utility that deserves trying.
