Use GoodSync for File Backup
GoodSync backs up files by copying from a source folder to a destination folder. Files are changed by the user only on the source folder, with changes sent to the destination folder for backup.
Backing up your data is a necessity so when important images, spreadsheets, MP3s, financial documents, and emails are lost, you are able to easily restore them with your backup copy on the destination folder. With file backup, your data is sent in one direction, to a destination folder on a location where it can be safely stored.
Backing up your files is important whether you want to completely restore a computer following a crash, or to restore small numbers of files after they have been accidentally deleted or corrupted. Backups are typically the last line of defense against data loss. With GoodSync you can back up files to a different location or device, including but not limited to flash drives, servers, laptops, desktops, or other external drives. GoodSync also supports FTP, SFTP, WebDAV, and Amazon S3. All GoodSync file backups are fast and secure, and can be completed locally, over a network, or over the internet.
Why is GoodSync file backup superior to traditional backup?
- GoodSync is faster and more efficient. GoodSync file backup employs a sophisticated synchronization algorithm to detect which files on the source folder have been changed, and only backs up the files that have been changed by the user. This is much more efficient than backing up the entire source folder every time files are backed up like traditional backup services.
- GoodSync provides easy access to your files. Unlike traditional file backup services, GoodSync directly backs up and updates the actual data files themselves. Instead of creating an image of the source data that has to go through a cumbersome restoration process, GoodSync makes an identical replication of the files in the source folder when transferring to the destination folder. In the event of data loss in the source folder, this means that files in the destination folder can be launched immediately, thereby reducing any unnecessary downtime.
- GoodSync has the most options for file storage. GoodSync backs up files that are in folders that are located on a hard drive, network, removable drive, FTP, SFTP, WebDAV, or Amazon S3. GoodSync can backup files locally, through a network, or through the internet. GoodSync is available for Windows and Mac and can be installed on a workstation, usb drive, or a server.
