What is GoodSync?

GoodSync is a backup and file synchronization program. It is used for synchronizing files between two directories, either on one computer, or between a computer and another storage device (e.g. another computer, a removable disc, a flash drive or a smartphone) or between a computer and a remote computer or server. Goodsync allows the same version of files to be maintained on multiple computing devices. In other words, when two devices are synchronized, the user can be sure that the most current version of a file is available on both devices, regardless of where it was last modified. It detects 'conflicts' where a file has been modified on both sources, and displays these to the user. Goodsync can detect when just the time or state of a file has been changed and modify it on the other side, without copying the entire file.
