Back-up and synchronize your Mac.

Overview

Syncovery is used to back-up your data and synchronize Macs, servers, notebooks, and online storage space.

You can set up as many different jobs as you need and run them manually or using the scheduler. The software comes with support for FTP, WebDAV, Amazon S3, and AES file encryption, as well as SSH and ZIP compression. There are powerful synchronization modes, including Standard Copying, Exact Mirror, and SmartTracking.

Numerous improvements to make an extremely versatile synchronizing and back-up tool. The wealth of features fulfills all requirements that users typically have, while still being easy to use.

What's new in Syncovery

Version 8.58a:
  • Syncovery will no longer put itself in front of other apps when the Sync Preview or other dialogs are shown. Instead, it will bounce its icon in the dock.
  • The Background Scheduler status window will now show activated (in front) when the user chooses "Show Status Window" in the status icon’s menu.
  • Includes recent improvements from the Windows version.

A great program for backup synchronization and recovery. I still prefer their original name "Super Flexible File Synchronizer" as I think that describes this program even better. Not only does this program get the job done well, they also support Windows.

Awesome tool. If you're not aware of it, you can use Syncovery to effectively incrementally backup entire servers daily to local with a spare Mac Mini. Drastically takes the complexity and high costs out of server backup if you have a strong internet connection (what office doesn't these days). Also works great for dealing with local Mac photo collections to sync changes two way if necessary (editing on two different Macs before resyncing - don't do this, but if you do, Syncovery has your back). Ugly yes, but Syncovery is powerful magic. The interface dismays me less over time as it's clear that offering this kind of power and making it visible to the end user has aesthetic consequences. SuperDuper! is my easy tool for reliable bootable backups in a simple attractive package. Both have their place in a power user's toolbox. Licensing is complex but bearable (versions, platforms, upgrades all calculate out via some pretty bizarre formulas but which do reward past investment in Syncovery software).. Licensing is per user and not per machine so you can use Syncovery on several machines (not simultaneously within a LAN) if you own more than one Mac.

Is Syncovery faster at copying than Super Flexible File Synchronizer? I'm using the latter and it's painfully slow, taking sevend and a half hour to move 188GB. I moved 400GB over the same network with another tool in that time. Despite this SFFS is very useful as it's the only sync software that I know of that can track and handle moved files.

Syncovery is the new name for Super Flexible File Synchronizer, they are NOT two separate apps.

There have been substantial speed improvements. I just moved from 6.31 to 6.73 and there was a substantial speed improvement when creating a sync index (I also excluded .DS_Store which helped).

Just tried v7.98 on El Capitan on the same sync with 80,000+ files. Much, much faster scanning the database and preparing for the sync. Much better numbers visible in the Synchronization Progress window including transfer rate, elapsed time and ETA.

Still almost as fugly as ever.

I find that anyone who claims that a particular software program is the "best" without giving a detailed comparison of its features versus the competition is just whistling in the dark. Prove it to me! Do a little more work than giving an opinion; an opinion is not a review. Hence, I find such statements meaningless and useless.

Syncovery show itself in Macupdate Desktop as version 1.0, whereas the latest version is 6.12. However, the About and Syncovery.app show itself as 6.12. What go wrong? Also Syncovery nag averytime asking me to migate database from the prior version. I have done so, but the nag never stop when I start Syncovery. This become annoying and please fix it

Thanks for pointing this out, and I apologize for it not being fixed sooner. MacUpdate Desktop should now properly identify the correct version of Syncovery.

I have been using Syncovery for a few years now (originally in its former incarnation as Super Flexible File Synchronizer) to syncronize folders between three Macs (home, office, laptop). I previously used some command-line rsync aliases for this. Syncovery not only simplified my synchronization tasks by providing a GUI where I could keep a collection of recurring sync jobs; it also provides capabilities beyond what I could handle with rsync, such as interactive editing of the synced file list (including reversing sync direction for selected files), the ability to delete files on each side of the sync (again, interactively), and good automatic discovery of renames and folder moves. Syncovery is a cross-platform app, and as such doesn't have the snazziest, most Mac-friendly interface. But it's become one of my most-used and most-appreciated tools. Every few months, when I come across a peculiar sync task, I end up discovering Syncovery has it covered (though not always in an obvious way). Several times I've had to email the developer to figure out how to do something or how to speed up a sync. I've always gotten a quick and helpful response, even when a solution involved having to inspect long file logs. Better documentation would have probably saved some of those emails, but the developer does provide solid support. Highly recommended if you need to do a lot of targeted syncing.

I've been using this since it was Superflexible version 4 several years ago - I tried out 4 or 5 different programs to do the same thing and this was by far the best. Here are some things that syncovery does really well: If you need to log on to a windows server and provide credentials, Syncovery does that - the drive does not need to be mounted first, Syncovery will do it all Syncovery also has a nice zip/encrypt option where it can backup each file to an individual zipped and encrypted file - I use this feature to copy important files on my drive to my drop box folder - this way the copy thats stored on dropbox is encrypted and password protected. This was recently proven valuable as dropbox was recently compromised. Overall I'm very happy with Syncovery, the program is still under active development and has received regular updates. It was a great purchase for me several years ago and is a great purchase today.

It keep nagging every time Syncovery start, whether config from Super Flexible File Synchronizer would be imported or not. When I click No, the next time Syncovery start, it nagging gin.
