Syncplicity is a file synchronization service from EMC Corporation.  EMC is behind the online backup service Mozy, and Syncplicity is their foray into a crowded cloud storage industry that includes Google Drive, Dropbox, Box, and others.  Syncplicity sets itself apart by being able to sync any folder on your hard drive, as well as offering secure sharing and collaboration tools.

In this review, I’ll take a look at how Syncplicity performs as a file sync service, and how well it backs up and restore files.

Max SyncUp is a file backup, restore, and synchronization utility for Windows.  It’s free for non-commercial use (and one profile), and it comes with advanced features including the ability to backup to Google Drive.

Have you ever wanted to sync files between your computers?  With ViceVersa, you can.  It comes in two flavors: Plus ($34.95) and Pro ($59.95).  This review will cover the Plus version, which is perfectly suitable for most users’ needs.  The Pro version is extra powerful and features real-time synchronization.

SyncBackPro is an advanced file backup and synchronization program.  It is the “professional” version of SyncBackSE and has additional features that aren’t included in the other version. The biggest differences are: S3/Google Drive support, backup of emails stored in POP3/IMAP, SFTP support, and automatic drive failure detection using S.M.A.R.T.  The price is $55.
