Create Synchronicity – Free Open Source Files Backup Software
Create Synchronicity is a fast and lightweight open source program that can help you to synchronize and backup your files. It also is very easy to use.
Create Synchronicity was recommended to me a few days ago by one of the readers of this blog through the contact form. After I checked the program website I became very curious to test this free software mainly because it’s open source and it promises to be lightweight and easy to use. So let’s see how it is.
You can say it’s lightweight right after downloading it, the whole package is around 200 KB! And you don’t even have to install it, just unpack the zip file to a folder of your choice and get going. You have to create a profile to start using the program.
You can set which folder you want to be synchronized and where and pick one of the three methods available, mirror, incremental and two-ways incremental. And that’s about it, you’re ready to synchronize the files and folders of your choice.
It only took me about 5 minutes from installing the program to successfully synchronizing the first folder, it’s amazingly easy to use and it does the job perfectly.
You can also specify some file types that you want to be excluded from the process (or included for that matter), and that could be useful if you want to synchronize a music folder on your PC to an mp3 player. You’ll just have to include only .mp3 files and that’s it, easy and fast.
Easy to use, lightweight and fast.
It’s open source.
Create Synchronicity is just what you needed, fast, lightweight and easy to use, a wonderful piece of open source software for any user that doesn’t want to get complicated when synchronizing or backing up files and folders. And if you think that it’s only the first version of this program there are high hopes this one could become a must have open source program for a lot of people around the world.
