Simple and fast file backup software

Do you have a backup copy of your data? If your hard disk drive breaks, you can buy apps and musics but you can never buy back original data like documents, photos, emails, etc.

Sync!Sync!Sync! helps you to make copies of your data by synchronizing two folders. It's very easy to set up, and once this is done, all you have to do is push a button. Of course, Sync!Sync!Sync! can also run automatically while you are away from home, or sleeping.

It's also AppleScript compatible, so you can make your own backup flow. There are some sample scripts in the package, so please try to find out what system works best for you.

Mac OS X 10.5 has an elegant backup system ("Time Machine") but if you want to use it, you have to prepare a huge empty HDD. If you don't have one, or you want to make backup through a network (like iDisk), Sync!Sync!Sync! is a better choice.


1. Simplicity
It's very easy to set up a new back up, just choose an original folder and a backup folder. Then you can customize the backup by choosing appropriate backup style and detailed setting step by step.

2. Scheduled Backup
Sync!Sync!Sync! can be run automatically by itself. User just needs to choose a day of week (or everyday) and time to run backup, then Sync!Sync!Sync! starts up and runs backup automatically on schedule. It's very easy to back up files to iDisk at midnight.

3. Various Backup Target
Not only is it easy to set up a backup not only to external HDD or USB Flash Drive like iPod, but also it's available to back up to any device which can be mounted on Finder like network server, iDisk (webdav server), other Macintosh via Wifi or FTP server.

4. Various Backup Style
Sync!Sync!Sync! provides various backup methods like "Add copy", "Synchronize copy", "Two-way copy" and so on. Sync!Sync!Sync! also provides various "Selectional" backup methods which allows user to check and choose files to be backed up or removed. About difference of those backup methods, please refer to the manual.

5. Detailed Setting
It's possible to use more detailed setting. User can determine files not to be backed up with its file name, label, file size and so on to save the space of backup drive and shorten running time. It's available to stock the backed up file history (Leave older file for certain period).

6. High Speed Backup
The backup process is very fast. The backup via network can be slower depends on the network speed, but the backup to external HDD will be done very quickly.

7. AppleScript Support
Sync!Sync!Sync! runs designated AppleScript before/after backup. For example, it's possible to mount iDisk or network server with AppleScript before backup and unmount the volume and send result via EMail after backup. The Sync!Sync!Sync! package contains various sample script like mounting iDisk or sending Email, please refer to those script. Sync!Sync!Sync! itself also supports AppleScript so it's available to run backup with AppleScript.

<Sync4 Beta version>

Sync!Sync!Sync! has been completely redesigned from scratch, taking advantage of all the latest technologies of macOS and its framework, while maintaining the simplicity of Sync!Sync!Sync! and renewing its internal structure to support future evolution of macOS, as well as adding multiple functions not supported by Sync!Sync!Sync!.
New Sync4 will be provided for free for current Sync!Sync!Sync! users.
👍Full compatibility with the latest macOS and support for the latest OS features for the foreseeable future.
👍Improved backup processing speed.
👍Supports multiple schedules for each backups.
👍Added new scheduler functions such as repeating at regular intervals, volume mount monitoring, etc., in addition to weekly execution.
👍Supports macOS shortcut feature.
👍Supports ability to browse backed up files inside of the compressed archive and to restore it.
👍Added application logs featurel

On the other hand, since it's using "only" the latest development environment, there are still many areas that are out of my hands. I'll improve these as soon as they are supported by standard OS functions.

👎The window size will be reset when macOS is restarted.
👎Backed up files browser becomes heavy when there are a large number of backup files.
👎Does not support macOS11 or earlier.

Beta version can be downloaded via following link, so if you would like to try it out and send me bug reports and feedback. I appreciate it and improve Sync4 as possible as I can.
