BestSync Portable by Evan

BestSync is an easy-to-use yet powerful and reliable file synchronization and continuous file backup software. It automatically analyzes, synchronizes, and backs up your files and Outlook emails between desktops, laptops, servers, and external drives, as well as remotely through FTP, SFTP, WebDAV, Amazon S3 cloud storage.

Before synchronization, BestSync makes backup all the files in your computer that will be replaced or deleted during the synchronization . This is the unique and most important option of BestSync while synchronizing from multiple locations.

In this way, original files of all stages can be restored easily, So using BestSync instead of any other synchronization software, you don't need to worry about losing file at any updating stage. BestSync supplies powerful features that are especially suitable for business usage.

· Synchronize files between two folders in single direction or bi-direction. The folder can be in a removable media, an external disk, a server, a network sharing directory, a network disk, or a FTP server
· Synchronize with FTP server with encryption and compression feature, and supporting FrontPage publish. It is very efficient to update a WEB site, only changed files are transferred to the server, and the deleted file on one side can be removed automatically by option. Files can be synchronized correctly even the client and server are in different time zone. Support FTP proxy, enterprise user can synchronize file behind the file wall
· Synchronize a folder with a ZIP file with complex filtering functions
· Deleted/overwritten files can also be backed up to one ZIP file
· Synchronize email, contact, schedule etc with MS Outlook by USB, FTP etc. (Outlook 2003/2007: 32Bit only), Outlook 2010: Both 32 bit and 64 bit)
· Encrypt and Compress, or Decrypt and Decompress option can be specified for the synchronous task. For example, when you synchronize files to an USB drive in office, the files are encrypted and compressed. And when the files are synchronized to a home PC again, files are decrypted and decompressed. So it is safe even though the USB drive is lost. The default cryptographic algorithm is AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) 256Bit
· Support "Volume Shadow Copy Service" of Windows XP and Windows server 2003, even opened files or locked files such as SQL data base file, OS registry file, Outlook PST files can be backup correctly
· Synchronize files immediately after they are changed
· BestSync monitors the change of the source folder. When a file is changed, deleted, or renamed, the file is copied to, deleted from, or renamed in the target folder immediately
· Flexible Schedule can be specified to start tasks automatically. You can set any schedule you want! For example: at 8:00 AM, every 30 minutes, 17 o'clock at Friday, at Windows startup, ... etc. Just set-it-and-forget-it. Automatic synchronization, automatic backup, automatic upload file to FTP server is capable
· Task can be schedule to run as a windows service without user logon. This is very suitable for a server to backup changed files, and workstation to backup files to a server
· The synchronization processing can be triggered by the insertion event of a removable media, such as USB drive, a memory stick, CF card, etc. BestSync can modify the task setting automatically if the drive is mounted to a different drive number from the task setting
· Synchronization processing can also be triggered by the mounting event of a network drive. When a task is started as a Windows Service, BestSync can impersonate a local user and logon to the network resource
· Insert a context menu "Encrypt Decrypt" in the Windows Explorer, It is simple to encrypt and compress files or decrypt and decompress files by this menu
· It is simple to synchronize with a digital camera. Pictures in the digital camera can be automatically moved to a designated folder, and rules can be specified to rename the picture names
· Wildcard patterns can be used as filtering conditions. The wildcard patterns can be part of the file name, extension and wild card characters (*,?,#), For example: "*.html; *.asp; *.htm; *.jpg; *.gif";. A file type selector makes selecting file types very easy. A changed file detection mechanism to sync/upload only changed files
· Sub-folders and files can be specified to be included or excluded from the synchronization
· Resuming from last break point feature to ensure large files to be copied successfully in limited time. This feature applies to synchronizing with FTP or network drive
· The task can be started with preview window. In the preview window, you can modify copy direction, action, and confirm the result of the synchronization, or start the comparing tool to view difference of files in two folders
· Backup and manage the old versions. The files overwritten or deleted during synchronizing can be backed up and restored later. The date and time of synchronization can be used to create a sub-folder to store the backup files, and a backup comment can be attached to the sub-folder. Also you can backup a full version to backup folder. Old versions can be cleared automatically by option. The backup files also can be encrypted and compressed
· Log view window manages the log of synchronization, and backup versions of changed files. In log view you can view difference between current version and the backup version. You can select an old version to restore to Folder1 and/or Folder2. Log data can be exported to a CSV file or HTML file, and be sent by email
· Full Unicode support. BestSync can synchronize file name include characters of Chinese, Japanese, Korean and more

What's new:
· Fixed a bug that may fail to preserve the timestamp of the uploaded file when synchronize with WebDAV collection.
· Fixed a bug that may cause exception error at the end of scanning folder in multiple threads.
