Awhile back I gave online password manager, RoboForm a try. With my use of RoboForm I was also introduced to GoodSync. I’ve never spent a significant amount of time worrying about or using a piece of software to synchronize files between machines. Up until now.
My initial thoughts with giving GoodSync a try was to accomplish a task that takes quite a bit of time to manage for a variety of my clients. I support over 60 different WordPress installations for a variety of friends and clients. What I’m wanting to do is setup a routine with a piece of software that I can program to automatically upload updates to a variety of WordPress plugins on various FTP sites with the push of a button. I believe GoodSync will accomplish that for me.
Before I get to that task though I’m just familiarizing myself with the interface provided by GoodSync and I’m finding that it’s loaded with great features that can help accomplish a variety of tasks.
GoodSync provides a tool to allow you to synchronize files between systems and directories, you can also use the software to perform backup routines and services. There’s even a GoodSync2Go option that gives the ability to synchronize files to mobile devices and thumbdrives. GoodSync has also recently released GoodSync for Mac as well.
I’ll follow-up with another post later when I accomplish my task of synchronizing files on various FTP sites with the push of a button. Until then, if you need to synchronize or back-up files, you can’t ask for much more than what GoodSync is going to provide you on your own systems.
