In the software market, there are tons of tools / Apps either paid or free for backing up your files, folders and drives etc. Each one of them got its own advantages and disadvantages. I was just surfing through internet as usual and found something pretty good enough for a backup solution with no price tag. Its SyncBack free version. I was amazed by loads of configuration options it had for different backing up situations.

SyncBack is a freeware program that helps you easily backup and synchronize your files to

  • the same drive;
  • a different drive or medium (CDRW, CompactFlash, etc);
  • an FTP server;
  • a Network; or
  • a Zip archive.


Highly configurable, SyncBack includes:

  • detailed, easy to read log files;
  • email results;
  • simulated backups and restore;
  • file filters; sub-directory selection;
  • copy verification;
  • background backups;
  • auto-close of programs;
  • easy and expert modes;
  • profile groups;
  • compare files, and
  • an extensive context sensitive help file.

This Freeversion includes options for compression and FTP server direct upload. Thats more than enough for free version.
