      T_N_T Although Syncthing is a great file synchronizer, do not completely replace Goodsync, as it does not sync files on the same computer and has no option to move files (delete at source).

      In a quick test, I can tell it behaves almost identically to GoodSync. Seems to be a good program.

      JohnnyAlzheimer FreeFileSync is a disaster, it took 24hs to copy over all the files, GoodSync does it in 3hs (clean backup to empty local folder). And what's worrisome: it always finds some new 2-3 GB every time i compare the folders even though i didn't make any changes on the remote directory.

      Only ftp and sftp connection are available in FreeFileSync. GoodSync has WebDAV, Azure, Amazon, Google Drive, Dropbox and more!

      It only allows backup local files to FTP, I needed the other way around i.e. backup FTP files on local directory.

      T_N_T rsync is great, but for me the biggest flaw is not having two-way synchronization.

    5. Rclone is a command line program to sync files and directories to and from: - Google Drive - Amazon S3 - Openstack Swift / Rackspace cloud files / Memset Memstore - Dropbox - Google Cloud Storage - Amazon Cloud Drive - Microsoft One Drive - Hubic - Backblaze B2 -...

    6. Easy: Doing backups should be a frictionless process, otherwise you are tempted to skip it. Restic should be easy to configure and use, so that in the unlikely event of a data loss you can just restore it. Likewise, restoring data should not be complicated.
    7. DirSync Pro is a small, but powerful utility for file and folder synchronization. DirSync Pro can be used to synchronize the content of one or many folders recursively. Use DirSync Pro to easily synchronize files from your desktop PC to your USB-stick.
