GoodSync is a very famous, simple but user-friendly and reliable automatic file/folder backup/sync utility. It can quickly and automatically analyze, compare and then sync or backup your files/folders among a variety of local or online storage spaces on multiple devices or platforms.

Through the use of innovative synchronization algorithm, GoodSync has become a leader in the industry. In GoodSync, data synchronization is absolutely not just a simple copy, but compares the content of synchronizing files first (to filter out the duplicate files) to reduce unnecessary work and save time. Therefore, GoodSync’s sync/backup work is more efficient and reliable, and won’t produce excess files (whether it is a two-way or one-way synchronization). It just can completely eliminate redundant files.

If you already know FreeFileSync is the best free and open source file/folder sync tool, then you should know GoodSync is the best commercial one. If want to let AppNee give a ranking list about the currently most well-known sync utilities, it would be like this: GoodSync (commercial) -> FreeFileSync (free) -> SyncToy (free) -> Allway Sync (commercial) -> Compare Advance (commercial).

FREE LICENSE PAID LICENSE
Enjoy all of GoodSync’s features with limitations on the numbers of jobs and sync-able files after the first 30 days. Limitless jobs and syncs, with multiple licenses in one: Pro V9, V10/ENTERPRISE/SERVER/Command-Line.

// Edition Statement //

AppNee provides the latest portable full registered versions of GoodSync (GoodSync2Go) V9, V10 Pro/Enterprise/Server Editions for Windows 32-bit and 64-bit, as well as full install and license key for Mac.

// Prompts //

  • For error “gs-server.exe has stopped working” – the solution is to run it as administrator.
  • Use ‘Job/Exit’ to close program, rather than the ‘X’ button. Otherwise, the portable version may not exit correctly.

// Warning //

  • GoodSync stores the saved/backup files in a hidden folder with name ‘_gsdata_‘ under the source or destination directory.
  • AppNee advises that you’d better uncheck the “Propagate Deletions” option, or you will probably lose your important files.
  • Since version 10.3.1 and 9.9.81, GoodSync has started to use a new field format for Job and Group lists backup/export file, which is not compatible with any lower versions (this may be a mistake made by its official, but you should treat it with caution).
