Though it’s the lighter, free version of the powerful SyncBackSE and SyncBackPro programs by 2BrightSparks, SyncBackFree is still a very handy and surprisingly feature-rich application.
SyncBackFree lets you back up and synchronize any files in a really easy and convenient manner. It also allows you to create multiple file backup and synchronization profiles, each with its own rules and settings, in an easy manner using a friendly wizard-like interface. The same kind of wizard-based interface can be used to restore the files as well. Anyway, the interface is really easy to use and intuitive, allowing even complete beginners to handle this application without any problem.
SyncBackFree doesn’t use a proprietary file format for storing the backups – it keeps the backed up files in their native formats. Furthermore, you may enable or disable file logging as you like. It also lets you schedule the backups, compress them to ZIP files, back up to FTP, and so on. It is, as I already said, surprisingly feature-rich for a free tool. Therefore, it gets my recommendation, especially since it also works flawlessly and without any problem.
- Easy-to-use interface.
- Allows scheduling and compressing the backups
