DeltaCopy Alternatives

    DeltaCopy is described as 'Let's say you have to backup one file that is 500 MB every night. A normal file copy would copy the entire file even if a few bytes have changed. DeltaCopy, on the other hand, would only copy the part of file that has actually been modified' and is an app in the Backup & Sync category. There are more than 10 alternatives to DeltaCopy for a variety of platforms, including Windows, Mac, Linux, iPhone and BSD. The best alternative is rsync, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like DeltaCopy are Bvckup 2 (Paid), Robocopy (Free), Allway Sync (Freemium) and PureSync (Free Personal).
