Editorial review


Francisco Martínez Senior editor

Reviewed: 10 Jan 2013

This review applies to version 6.2. The latest version of this software will soon be reviewed by our informers.

Syncovery is a highly comprehensive backup and data synchronization application that covers nearly all known solutions and methods available in this field.
The possibilities are endless, and they go from standard backing up and synchronization utilities for a wide variety of storage devices – both locally and on a network – to online backup and real-time synchronization.

The program has been designed to cover the needs of both the novice and expert users, or to put it differently, of those who simply need to create a backup copy of their most sensitive data and of those looking for versatile ways of keeping their networked and online information securely updated and stored. At local level, Syncovery supports any PC, notebook, external drive, mounted volume, and any other storage device you can think of. At network level, if offers you support for any server you can access via any of the standard protocols, such as FTP, SSH, or HTTP. Besides, it also allows you to synchronize and protect all your WebDAV, Amazon S3, Google Docs, and - since this new version - Amazon Glacier files and documents.

Though the program’s interface could use a slightly more attractive design, it serves the program’s purposes well. You can use either its wizard-like options or go into expert mode, depending on the complexity of your system and how confident you feel while moving around the plethora of features provided. Probably the easiest way of making the most of the program’s possibilities is to create your own backup and synchronization profiles and set them to perform their tasks at a regular basis. The program’s scheduler will help you to achieve this, keeping your drives updated at all times, even when you simply move one file or folder from one location to another.

Those of you looking for a high level of security can either make use of the program’s 256-bit AES encryption capabilities, or simply put your valuable data in a protected ZIP archive.

The list of features provided is too long to deal with in this review – all you need to know is that Syncovery can be as flexible and configurable as you need it to be, regardless of the complexity of your file system, the number of storage devices involved, and where they are located.

What's new in version 6.2


- Adds support for Amazon Glacier.
- Fixes an issue with the volume shadowing option “Use For All, Create Shadow Before Building File List” that could cause deletions to be disabled due to discrepancies between the file list on the volume shadow and the live one. The new version will look at the shadow only when double-checking deleted files.
- Fixes multipart file upload to Amazon S3 with extremely large files.

Publisher's description

Back up your data and synchronize PCs, Macs, servers, notebooks, and online storage space.

You can set up as many different jobs as you need and run them manually or using the scheduler. Syncovery works with local hard drives, network drives and any other mounted volumes. In addition, it comes with support for FTP, SSH, HTTP, WebDAV, Amazon S3, and Google Docs. You can use ZIP compression and data encryption. On Windows, the scheduler can run as a service – without users having to log on. There are powerful synchronization modes, including Standard Copying, Exact Mirror, and SmartTracking.

Syncovery features a carefully designed GUI to make it an extremely versatile synchronizing and backup tool. The wealth of features fulfills all requirements that users typically have, while still being easy to use.
