"GoodSync is File Sync and Backup Combination."

What do you like best?

It has a user interface that is very easy to use such that you do not need any instructions guide and more so it's customized in a way that its friendly to any user. It’s also very fast such that you can back up and sync files between several devices without taking you forever. Although it's optional it has a feature that allows you to even back up the deleted files and therefore you do not have to worry in case you need it in the future.

What do you dislike?

Although it has a free version I find its pricing to be relatively high.on another note, the free version works great for me so no much complaint about the free version.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

GoodSync is a good software that will ensure you with the security of your files and data.more so it reduces the headache and the stress of worrying in case of data lose since it provides you with a workable solution.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

as i do not know when one of my computers may die or even get stolen I use GoodSync to back up my data and files. In a case where I have found myself in such a situation, GoodSync has helped me recover my files and avoid major regrets through losing important files.

"Backup and Synchronization Software."

What do you like best?

It enables copying of a file or data from a computer and synchronizes that same file or data to a different computer. You can as well save data on external devices like phones and tables comfortable just by synchronizing. It allows you to filter and hence you can be able to only work with the desired file and not including the whole set of files even the one you don’t need.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes its slow especially while working with large amount of data or files.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

For file safety through back up and synchronization GoodSync is a perfect software to choose.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Having my files in more than one saving location makes me feel safe. Goodsync has been able to help me in synchronizing my files for safety.

"Reliable Storage/Backup"

What do you like best?

I like the fact that GoodSync has an application for my desktop computer that makes it easy to use and manage files. I also like that GoodSync has so many diverse features - even though it does take a little time to learn the system, once you get the hang of all the features and how to use them - it is a good system that has a lot to offer. One of my favorite things about GoodSync is the fact that it offers a free service. Getting such a professional and reliable service free of charge is almost unheard of and it is secure enough that it passed my companies rigorous security checks.

What do you dislike?

With so many different features available to use in GoodSync, I think that the platform could be easier to navigate and use. I have noticed that many users never get the full experience simply because they aren't aware of all the different options GoodSync has to offer. I think a better help section or a section that takes you on a tour of the features would be a helpful GoodSync addition.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend GoodSync because it is secure. It also allows you to schedule a time for backups to occur - which can be different based on the user. So, if you are working in different time zones, you can choose to backup when you know people won't be trying to work or won't be in the office which is a nice feature. I think GoodSync would benefit companies of all sizes no matter what backup needs you might have.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With employees working in not only different offices but in different countries - it can be difficult to manage files and backup everyone's thing in an efficient manner. GoodSync has made this take much more manageable to take on which has been a life saver for my company. We are able to securely backup our files no matter what location we are working in at that specific time. The fact that GoodSync allows us to pick a daily time for backup to occur has also been good because we can choose to backup when we know people aren't working to avoid disruptions and delays.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

With Goodsync its easy to keep your files synchronized and backed up between computer even if you're working separately.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Keep your files and foldes secure and synchronized on several devices"

What do you like best?

Can create both Backup and Sync. There is no need to have or use different tools for different jobs.

Synchronizing tool is very powerful and accurate, no files get deleted.

You can sync files and folders from remote computers using FTP or SFTP.

You can choose where to sync because it have many cloud storage servers (google drive, onedrive, box etc).

What do you dislike?

User Interface for synchronization needs to be improved for a modern design.

It takes some time to acquaint and to realize how exactly it works so first time users can be difficult.

The way the data represented (conflicts, copy left to right and vice versa) and also the action that needs to be taken presented in a better way.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I have several hard disks and I back up and sync between all of them using goodsync. It is really fast and makes the easily done. I highly recommend it

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When we have too much data or many disk drives it is really easy to forget back up or sync your files. We also need to keep track manually of the changed files and update. In some cased it can be easily overlooked. Having a software like goodsync, we don't really have do any manual tracking. It takes care of comparing and we just have to choose what actions needs to be taken. Saves a lot of time and make the whole process easy.

"GoodSync is the perfect way to upload files to various cloud spaces."

What do you like best?

Very easy to use, all you need is install the software select the files you want to store and selected the destination cloud service then automate the process it could by syncing your files immediately after creation or when you receive them or you can set a schedule for syncing, it offers packages for everyone from $29.95 to over $2000 depending on size of business and volume of files being synced, its compatible with the basic work operating systems Mac OS and Windows, it's very secure and fast as compared to manual uploading because it works even in the background automatically you don't need to monitor it.

What do you dislike?

Everything works fine I have never seen any feature or behaviours that discust me.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It will make you sure that your files are safe its a great way to make profitable use of your cloud space.

Have reduced the manual work of uploading every document that comes, it has made it easy to effectively use cloud space services and made it easy to retrieve any documents from.the cloud from anywhere anytime.

"Best File Storage and Backup System for everyday office use"

What do you like best?

When some storage solutions sync on their own, GoodSync allows the user to utilize a more DIY approach. This autonomous way of file management allows for better organization and efficiency when managing files. The learning curve it takes to get through (first time user), it is well worth it!! You will not regret learning about the extended features. With the ability to connect to multiple different cloud providers, synchronization becomes your best friend. Server sync capabilities are also great.

What do you dislike?

For those who are looking for broader cloud capabilities such as file sharing, there is no need for this product. Some co-workers struggle with the expanded features this product brings because the software is so large, not everyone in the office needs to utilize GoodSync.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It takes time to learn all the capabilities, it is worth it

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Data Synchronization. I have realized the synchronize and backup tools are able to bring us into better communication in the long run.

"Very good software to sync folders easily"

What do you like best?

This software is really useful. You can create different "jobs" with different settings to suit your needs. You have the ability to exclude files based on wildcards, size and date/time. You can also visualize what would be synchronized before it happens and you can then change/cancel certain file synchronization if you want. In the several years I've been using it, I hadn't had any problem with it.

What do you dislike?

I don't use the software to it's full potential. There are several features that I don't need or use. So, for me, there is nothing I dislike about it.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are looking for a software to synchronize files easily, this is it. You can create different "jobs" for your different needs. Be it to synchronize a single file (which I do!) or several files distributed in several folders, it will do the job. You can view what will be done before it actually happens and you can modify what will be done as well. The graphic representation is clear and easy to understand (we have non tech users that use it and they have no problems at all).

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use this software mainly to synchronize files for our company's website. When changes are done to web pages or files added to the site, I use it to validate what changes are to be "pushed" to the website and to actually transfer the files. So, at a glance, I can see clearly what are the files modified, removed or added.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Syncing with Google Drive and NOT using Googles Drive File and Sync which is a very bad program

"Syncing made easy!"

What do you like best?

I like that it is so easy to sync all files between computers, devices, google drive and etc. Comes in almost real time and its fast. Backing up is just as easy for any devices and even portable drives.

What do you dislike?

Some issues with it is that is sometimes not ready for use with the best options. If you want the best result you have to change some of the settings, that's if you know what you are doing. But other than that it is a good product.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Makes life easy. Never worry about losing your data because it can always be backed up. syncing files is also easy.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Saving time, which saves me money. You can schedule your backups so you can do them over night and not have to wait during the day for them to backup.

"Need to sync some directories? Options, options, options."

What do you like best?

Goodsync is a beefy sync tool which puts bi-directional syncing at your fingertips using a variety of options and protocols. FTP, SFTP, Amazon S3, Google Drive, SkyDrive, WebDAV, Azure. Syncing can be done between computers, mobile devices and a variety of cloud services.

What do you dislike?

I found Goodsync to be a bit heavy-handed, resource intensive and "tinkery." If you enjoy tweaking your software, and don't mind solving sync issues and overall intrusiveness in your workflow, then this is a good thing for you.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I ended up testing some less heavy-handed solutions, ones with simpler deployment and quicker setup.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have multiple PCs, Macs and mobile devices sharing working directories selectively over home, office and remote networks.

"Better than SyncToy"

What do you like best?

GoodSync has a better interface than the Windows native SyncToy. GoodSync improves the user interface by applying tabs for different tasks. Unlike SyncToy, it has its own scheduler, so you don't need an external scheduler to make it repeat jiobs on a periodic base. In summary, a very useful application.

What do you dislike?

There is not much to dislike. It's user-friendly and easy to use.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Backing up code between different machines on a daily schedule. It does the job well and reliably.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the synchronization process fails when the number of files is large.

I synchronize with this application when I need to have the same files on some private servers.
