You’ve surely heard by now that you should have three copies of your photos and videos, on two different types of media and one located off-site from your home. The 3-2-1 Backup Strategy! It sounds easy enough; copy all your stuff from one place to another and you’re good to go. Until you start doing it and then you realize, you don’t know where you left off the last time. Which photos and videos are copied where?! It doesn’t take long before you are overwhelmed again, just trying to figure out which photos you have on which backup.
And this is where GoodSync comes to the rescue.
Why we love it:
It’s a powerful file synchronization tool that is very inexpensive considering the time and headache it saves you when you are trying to manage your memories. It will check the files on your local copy, compare them to the files you have on your backups and then proceed to make them match.
No more trying to remember when you last backed up or what was backed up. GoodSync does it for you!
It works with Windows, Mac and even Linux Operating Systems. And, it backs up to your external drive or a wide variety of cloud servers, including Amazon Cloud Drive or S3, Backblaze B2, Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive and more.
You can choose to schedule it to backup your files automatically, whenever is most convenient for you, so you never have to worry that your photos and videos aren’t being backed up. Or, you can initiate a backup anytime you choose for as many files as you like or even just a single file.
You buy the GoodSync software for only $29.95. One time only, no subscription fee which I like. If you are undecided, you can try it for free! Check it out and protect your family’s memories today.
