Backup & Sync
In life, things happen. It’s the nature of the beast. Fires, floods, robbery, and other disasters that can rob you of data occur with some amount of regularity. This means that it’s critical to have a backup or contingency plan in order to pick up where you left off the best you can in case the worst case occurs. That’s where software focused on backing up and synchronizing your data comes in.
Software that focuses on backing up physical media, local hard drive data, and even critical messages and other forms of communication is the focus here, alongside services such as DropBox and OneDrive that focus on constantly syncing data between your devices and secure external servers that you can access from anywhere with an Internet connection.

Last version, 18.104.22.1682, released in December 2012, can be still downloaded from the official website.
