Upload & Sell: On
I use Free File Sync on my work Windows laptop (Carbon Copy Cloner on Macs).
One thing that may not be obvious at first glance is that it supports shadow copy services in Windows. This means that you can back up files which are open. Many backup programs aren't able to do that. So before you could do a backup you'd have to get out all your applications and then run your backup. With Free File Sync you don't need to do that.
Thanks Rob. One thing that really bugs me about FreeFileSync is how sneaky they seem to be with the extra adware they want to install. They deliberately hide the opt out under a custom install, and purposely make the Typical install a very attractive option so you don't find the opt out. From some online searching, it seems like when installing updates it is even harder to avoid the junk they want to install.
I figure I can afford the $40 for SyncBack, and I think I will feel a lot better. Will probably do it this weekend.
