Pros: The software is easy to install, easy to set up, and super easy to use. I love that there are options to mirror folders, or just add, or just delete. There are lots of options that make this backup software exactly what you need it to be.

Cons: My computer sometimes like to rename my ports, so if it does that, then I have to do a little more work to make sure that my "pre-set" back up can go where it needs to.

Overall: My laptop started to crash. I installed this software and backed up all my important data. I was able to get my new laptop working well quickly because of simplicity and ease of use of this software. Now I rest much easier as I keep all my important work backed up frequently, and quickly.

Pros: Easy configuration, multiples modes, high customization for each case, really easy to use. Ist a light program that not slow the PC

Cons: Really not to many cons: use this in LAN need administrator access, for this reason if no are administrators will get problems to access directories.

This makes perfect and easy backups; to Dropbox, in my case. Doing it automatically is tricky.

Pros: It is extremely easy to set up for manual use. (As in "back up now.") It only copies changed files, which is the secret of the fast backups. You ban back up as large a set of files as you wish. If your office burns to the ground, you still have your data safely tucked away.

Cons: The learning curve in general is not bad. Setting up backups as a "task" is more difficult, although there are helps online, here and there. I back up once a day, but, it could be every hour.

Overall: Safe, easy backups.

Pros: File sync was really easy to use- used to automate backup of a nest of folders to a separate drive - worked well to track changes and update all relevant files

Cons: Struggled to get the scheduled backs to work correctly - maybe more to do with my configuration but didn't manage to find a lot of good material to,explain functionality- interface could do with some modernisation

Pros: We all know it is important to keep multiple backups of our computer systems but for many small businesses, the owner may not know how due to lack of knowledge and/or cost consideration. Ever since I discovered about this software, I am full of praises for it. Being free (donations welcomed), you cannot complain about the price. It supports Windows, Mac and Linux systems so another big plus there for any business. What I like most about it is that it has advanced features which will meet most if not all of the needs of even the most demanding user. You can set it to sync files meeting certain criteria (e.g. only those with .DOC extensions); you can then specify whether to do a mirror sync (one-way) or a full-time sync (two-way); you can set it to perform the task at a preset time or in real-time (though I haven't tried this yet). Now, you really have no excuse not to make a backup of your system!

Cons: Being open-source software, there is no dedicated telephone support. And for the novice, setting it up right at the beginning can be intimidating. But trust me, once set up, file sync becomes a breeze and no-brainer. Other than this, I really have no complaints about the software. It is also regularly updated approximately once a month.

Overall: It automates a lot of mundane effort to keep a perfect backup of my important files. Without it, I would have to open up a file manager with dual windows, and manually inspect files on both sides to determine which files to backup/delete in order to keep a mirror image. FreeFileSync helps me to perform this task in seconds! Now, I am able to keep a mirror image of my important files inside an external hard drive which I keep with me at all times. In the event of an emergency which incapitates my main computer system, I would be able to continue my business using another computer with literally no downtime because I have a perfectly sync mirror image of all my important files.
