Good Sync: Transfer files and Synchronize Folders With Ease

You prepare a draft PowerPoint presentation on your home computer, then take it your work on a Laptop, transfer it to the Office computer, make some changes and again bring it home for further editing. The cycle repeats the next day.

When you have to move files back and forth so many times, how do you make sure that the copy of PowerPoint presentation that you are currently working on is the most recent one ? It will be so tedious if you do it manually. And you are not alone. Most office workers face this daunting task of synchronizing files and folders between the office PC, Laptop and the home computer.

Keeping two computers on the same page can get simpler with Good Sync, a simple file synchronization program from Siber Systems that also develop the popular Roboform password management and form filling software.

Good Sync is a versatile bi-directional directory (folder) synchronization utility that makes it easy sync files between two folders located either on the same computer or across multiple computers. GoodSync also be used with removable devices (USB Drives, MP3 Players, Digital Cameras, Flash Drive, Flash Drive or CDRW disc), over a local network or the Internet (share a folder on a Server computer and make the computer accept connections on port 139)

Good Sync has a simple, intutive interface. First you choose two folders that you want to synchronize and then click the Analyze Button. Good Sync quickly displays the folder differences. The default action is to synchronize the entire content of source folder to the target folder (mirror image). You can also choose to do a bidirectional transfer or just leave the file in one location.

Once you decide what to do with your files, you click Synchronize. The Files and folders are copied or deleted, as needed. While data is synchronized, GoodSynch displays a real-time log of actions.

There's even a command line version of GoodSync for running synchronization jobs from the good-old DOS prompt (Remember the cron jobs on Linux or Unix ?)
