Bamboo File Sync and Backup is an intuitive file synchronization and backup utility which automates copy, deletion, and comparison of computer files in different storage devices like hard disks, flash memory, network drives and removable devices. It is designed to simplify and automate the tedious works of modern computer users who consistently experience manual work of copying files back and forth among their personal and network folders. Bamboo let you pre-define your routine file copy actions; or complicated ad-hoc copy actions, so that you can execute them over and over again without manual selection, monitoring, examination, and conflicts resolution. Bamboo also let you group such actions together and schedule their execution as you wish.
With the easy and friendly user interface, sophisticated file processing engine, advanced filtering, and comprehensive options, users can start to distribute and backup their files to more and more computers and storage devices. Such copy and backup actions would make more sense now than ever because they would never need to worry if those copies are up-to-date or not.
