What is Allwaysync?
Allwaysync is software used for file transfer and file synchronization (backup). It is able to determine if the file has been transferred already and doesn’t waste bandwidth by transferring it again. This means it is a great way to backup files to Dropbox or between workstations. It can backup to local drives, Dropbox, Google Drive, One Drive, FTP and others
When should you use it?
Every day. Doing continuous backups every 6 hours can mean your data is always safe. You will need to have a good internet connection and a cloud storage account like Google or Dropbox to save your data offsite.
Where can you get it?
visit https://allwaysync.com/, buy a license and download the software to your pc.
Why use Allwaysync?
My reasons for using this software are very simple. I can see and use the files immediately at the destination. If I use an encrypted backup solution that stores the data on a location. Often the software is difficult to use when you need it most. If something happens to your IT support person, how do you restore your data in an emergency? With allwaysync, I just plug the destination drive (external USB drive) into a laptop or another server and read the data. I don’t have to do anything special at all. If I want to get fancy, I can zip and encrypt the files, but you have to way up what’s important. I think being able to get access to the backup files quickly is more important and for this reason, I don’t generally encrypt the files on a local external drive.
If the site has very slow internet access I will zip the files so that they transfer better over the internet.
