File and Folder Sync and Backup

Tired of manually managing multiple copies between different computers, hard drives, USB Pen drives, etc? Always worrying you'll overwrite a more recent file with an older one, or forgetting to backup that photo folder you've just moved to your USB thumb drive?

I don't need to remind you just how important Backups are. At any moment, your computer hard drive or flash memory card might just decide not to work any more - leaving you with nothing but a panic attack. That's why it's so important to create a non-annoying backup routine you can follow every single day, that will ensure your more important digital data is always safe if/when things go wrong.

Back to the file and folder folder synchronization topic, on the top of the list I present you this amazing, free, and open-source program: Synkron (available for Windows, Mac, Linux . and in a portable version as well).

This Synkron is quite powerful and will certainly cater for any need you might have - just take a look at its advanced settings page and you'll see what I mean.

But even for the casual user, it will prove more than useful in synchronizing document folders to/from your external backup hard drives or USB pen drives.

Besides this Synkron, you might also give the following programs a try (nothing like trying a couple of them before deciding which best suits your needs):
