BestSync is software to synchronize/backup the local file with/to
a local folder, remote folder which includes the net drive, FTP server, WebDAV
server, and cloud storage. BestSync supports public personal cloud storage, such
as Microsoft SkyDrive, Google Drive, and DropBox. BestSync also supports
commercial cloud storage, such as Amazon S3, Windows Azure, Google Storage, and
Rackspace Cloud Files.
By utilizing BestSync, user can upload/download only changed files to/from cloud storages by scheduling automatically. BestSync analyzes the local folder and the remote folder, detects the changed files, deleted files and moved files, and resolves the conflict files automatically.
The most important feature of Best Sync is the encryption feature. Nowadays, many companies provide free cloud storages, such as Google Drive, Microsoft Skydive. It is very convenient to backup file to cloud storage, or share files between computers over the internet from cloud storage, but the security is the big problem. How to protect your confidential files on the public internet is a major source of concern for users. BestSync provides a good solution for this. BestSync has an encryption option to protect your data, the encryption feature uses AES 256bit strong encryption algorithm that is also used by the banks. While uploading file, BestSync encrypts the file first and then uploads the file. When BestSync downloads the file, it decrypts it to the local folder. All this encryption is done transparently; user needs not to do any extra work. Now you need not to worry about disclosing your data while using the convenient public cloud storages.
BestSync has another important feature called backup feature. Before the commencing of the synchronization process, BestSync creates backup of all the files within your computer which will either be replaced or deleted during the process of synchronization. This is an unparalleled feature of the BestSync while synchronizing from various locations. Thus, original files can be restored in a very simple manner. Hence, by utilizing BestSync rather than other synchronization software, you don't have to face the stake of losing any of the files at any point of the updating stage.
BestSync provides a wizard interface to setup the synchronization or backup task; it has many flexible options to adjust the task, such as including/excluding any files or folders from the synchronization, filtering the files by file types and time, copying opened/locked files, controlling the network bandwidth, running a program before/after synchronization, reporting results by email, specify a schedule to run the task automatically etc. If you cannot find an option in other software, may be you can find it in BestSync. After you set up a task, it is saved in the task list, you can run it manually whenever you want, or just let the scheduler run it automatically.
BestSync is really convenient software for users who need to work on the same files from different computers, and for users who often forget to backup important files.
