Backup your important data quickly and easily with InSync. The InSync folder synchronizer efficiently replicates entire groups of folders, sub-folders and their files. Now you can perform backups or copy data from one machine to another with ease.
Simplicity and flexibility are important. InSync keeps things simple for those who want it simple, while allowing the flexibility necessary for more difficult and/or professional situations. Do straight folder-to-folder copies, or specify one or more source folders that can each be sync\'ed to one or more target folders. Easily exclude folders. Include or exclude files using wildcards. Define and run multiple synchronization jobs. Clone or mirror existing jobs when new setups will be similar to previous ones.
Efficient resource utilization is the backbone of InSync\'s performance-focused design. Save time and system resources by copying only data that has changed. For even more optimization, you can allow InSync to run multiple tasks at the same time. InSync\'s focus is on high-performance data backup, and for power users, mirroring and data propagation, too.
Scheduling convenience is built-in. You can run your InSync jobs yourself, or you can schedule InSync jobs to run whenever is most convenient. The powerful
Intellithreads. New intelligent thread scheduler maximizes performance through increased parallelism without burdening system resources. Processor configuration, input/output and memory load are monitored for optimal use resulting in up to 40% improvement in backup or synchronization speed.
Optimized buffer management. New optimized input-output memory buffer manager redesigned to make efficient use of memory by mitigating memory fragmentation and cache invalidation caused by cache line sharing on multiprocessor systems such as Intel's Core 2 and Quad processors. In practical terms these technical details translate to lower system load and better device access performance.
Portable device support. Portable devices such as flash sticks and USB drives which are not always allocated constant drive letters can now be referred to by volume name. The file naming convention has been extended to allow the specification of a volume name instead of a drive letter.
UAC aware design. Under Windows Vista and Windows 7 users with administrator accounts are provided with a run-time option specifying whether InSync should run elevated or not. With this feature, administrative users who do not require advanced features such as locked file copying can avoid User Access Control (UAC) prompts each time InSync is started.
Disk fragmentation avoidance. We promote long term system performance by mittigating fragmentation on target disk drives. Target files are preallocated to their full size in order to give Windows the best possible opportunity to allocate contiguous disk space.
