@MAX SyncUp allows executing the bi-directional synchronization of data to provide identity of the files saved in the two different places. Usually this function is used when you have two computers and want to have the identical sets of files on the each machine but don’t want to drag them manually.
The file synchronization in @MAX SyncUp is available in two modes: the stand-alone mode and the client-server mode. In the stand-alone mode the program is set on the one computer while the second side may be a removable drive, a networked computer or NAS, FTP, SFTP or WebDAV-server or the Google Drive cloud storage.
In the client-server mode @MAX SyncUp is set on both the computers and one of them is configured to work as SyncUp-server. When synchronizing files, both the computers interact via the special protocol and the effective RSync-like algorithm, which detects and transfers only the changed parts of files over a network, is applied. This mode is available in a local network as well as over the Internet.
As with the backup, to synchronize files you need to create the synchronization profile. For that use the New profile wizard which allows configuring synchronization parameters in step-by-step manner. After the synchronization profile has been created the synchronization will be executed automatically at the specified time or when the trigger event is occurred, for example, if files are changed.
