Being in Sync means your Data is safe

What is data synchronization? This technology synchronizes data between two or more computers and/or the cloud and automatically copies changes that are transacted between devices.

GSFile synchronization is used for home or small business backups when the user copies files to a flash drive or external hard drive. The synching prevents creating duplicate files.

For superior synching, take a look at GoodSync with its 30-day free trial. After which, for $30 (or use 33% of discount code “SICI1”), you can continue using its battleship of features. GoodSync provides remote service and also synchs with many online services.

Now let me tell you how well GoodSync works for me. Like most, my operating system resides on my C Drive. I keep my C Drive clear and free of all data so all it has to do is operate my system and contain updates, drivers and security patches. My D Drive is the DVD/CD Rom drive and My E: drive has all my data, taking up over 75 percent of the three-terabyte internal drive. My primary data is on Drive E, and this is backed up by a cloud service and then synched to my external three-terabyte F: drive.

Now, every two hours, GoodSync automatically synchs my external F: and internal E: drives. Even though all my data is in a cloud, what if my internal drive crashes? Downloading everything would be a pain. That’s where GoodSync comes in. Plus, though the cloud has its virtues, assessing data from it on a daily basis is surely not one of them.

You’ll be pleased with GoodSync’s efficient main window. Some of GoodSync’s offerings include file filtering, bidirectional/unidirectional synching, synching of deletions, and job scheduling.

Version 9 can include numerous sources and single files in one job. If you create files on your mobile, GoodSync will automatically download them. It supports SkyDive, Windows Azure, Google Docs, Amazon Cloud Drive and Amazon S3.

Don’t let the lack of flamboyant design fool you; GoodSync is as good as they come, and for tech savvy users, is a breeze. In particular, not-so-tech-savvy users will be quite impressed with the many options but will need more time to catch on. Read more about that here.

GoodSync stands out from other synching programs because it displays files from both destination and source on the right side of its main window, while the status shows on the left side. It’s best to use a dedicated destination folder for your synch.

As for connecting to online services, GoodSync supports SFTP, FTP and Webdav.

Another point is that for every PC that you wish to remotely synch, you will need a license.

There really isn’t any reason why you shouldn’t download GoodSync and take advantage of its 30-day free trial.

You have nothing to lose (literally!) with GoodSync. Get going on it.

Stolen Laptop Contained Prostate Cancer Research Data

News9 in Oklahoma reports “An Oklahoma couple is urging thieves to return a stolen computer they say has the power to save millions of lives. The couple stopped at Panera to grab a meal before heading back to the lab. When they finished, they found their car windows broken and the laptop gone. Unfortunately, most of the data was never backed up, a mistake Shin said could be a major setback in the fight against cancer.”

OMG!!! Frankly, sometimes it is the smartest people that lack the most common sense!!!

In 2003, an estimated 1.5 million laptops were stolen worldwide. Today, that number has climbed to 2.6 million. That’s a 70% increase in just a few years. That’s one stolen laptop every 12 seconds.

Protecting a laptop from theft begins with backup up the data on it. While backing up data isn’t protecting the laptop from theft, but in the end, that is really all that matters. Laptops today are as little as $300.00 and the data on it could be worth millions. And in this case, it is worth lives.

I use a laptop and there isn’t any data on it other than movies. The laptop is used to access my PC where my data is stored and backed up.

Either way for $5.00 a month you can get unlimited backup that syncs your data in the cloud. In addition, backup your data on local drives. I use the Western Digital MyBook drives and have all my data backed up twice and automatically synced with Goodsync.

My data isn’t cancer research, but if I lost all of it, I’d want to die.
