Synchredible is a free for home use data synchronization software for Windows to run one-way and bi-directional sync jobs.
Data synchronization is a very effective method of keeping data that is stored in multiple locations in sync with each other. A classic example is a user who works with a desktop computer at home, and takes a notebook to work.
Sync software would be run regularly to keep the data on the computer and notebook in sync. This ensures that you have access to the latest files and information no matter which device you use.
Other prime examples include syncing data between computers and a wireless device, cell phone, digital camera or mp3 player. A user could use it to move photos taken with a digital camera to a PC, transfer new mp3 songs to the mp3 player or upload new applications to a mobile phone.
Synchredible is a free data synchronization software that can be used to synchronize data in one way or bi-directionally. You create jobs in the program that define all the parameters of the sync process, and may use the job wizard for that as it guides you through the creation of new sync jobs.
Each new job begins with the selected of two root folders. These can be on the same computer, a network drive, or another device. Supported are local storage devices like hard drives, removable devices like USB drives and network devices that are currently connected to the computer.
Basically, anything that is connected to the device Syncredible is run on can be selected as a sync folder. You may also select whether you want subfolders to be synced as well, or not.
You define the synchronization direction in the next step. You may sync data from the source folder to the target folder, or in both directions.
Additional criteria for the synchronization are configured in the third step. This includes the option to either synchronize all files, only newer files, only files with archive bits, and to delete additional files and folders in the target directory if one way synchronization is selected.
This can be further customized in step four which provides the means to include or exclude files, and folders using filters that support wildcards.
The data synchronization can be scheduled in the fifth step. This ranges from executing the synchronization every x minutes, over executing it on specific days of the week or month, to running it on system events that include Windows start, logoff and USB device detection.
Users can create actions that should be executed before and after a synchronization starts and finishes.
Lastly, but you may define additional settings in the last step of the process. You may name the job and select a group for the job, make Syncredible check file content before syncing data, make it delete the archive bit, or show previews before the actual synchronization process runs.
The core difference to the commercial version of Syncredible is that the latter can be used commercially, and that customers get the right to free technical support with a purchase. All other features are identical between both versions.
Syncredible is a sophisticated data synchronization software for the Windows operating system that is free for personal use. It can be directly downloaded from the developer's website. The language in the program can be switched from German to four other languages including English and French. It is compatible with most Microsoft operating systems including Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 10 and Windows XP.
