Looking for an easy way to keep copies of my music backed up and in sync.
thank you. i’ll check it out
+1 for GoodSync.
A word of caution regarding synchronising files across drives: this is neither the same nor as reliable as backups. If a file is corrupt or altered in some way synchronising may result in a backup copy being overwritten too.
It’s preferable to create incremental backups (some of the synchronisation programs refer to this as a one-way sync) with snapshots.
Thanks Martin. I only do backups. I backup on file change to local networked drives and then dupe the backups to a archive I keep in the safe (every couple of months)
Looking for an app that I can control from Android. Or at least one that sends me notifications on successful back ups.
I use Duplicacy (command line) but there is a GUI version for Windows and Mac. This will send email notifications. However, your backup is only readable by the backup applications. Probably not what you’re looking for, but I highly rate this software.
I use freefilesync.
+2 for GoodSync. Lots of options, both for sync and backup, to local drives, cloud, FTP, with or without encryption, etc.
