It is mainly because of its features and reliability. Even when dealing with large drives, after the analysis step, it can identify the changes that occurred between the backup or synchronization drive and the master drive and presents to the use the choices of what should be done about the changes. The user can accept the changes or tweak which the backup or synchronization will do. The SW will remember those decisions for future activities on the same drives.

Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager is well suited for Windows domain environments where you need to make backups of Hyper-V virtual machines or bare metal servers. It is possible to backup SQL databases, works pretty well, but sometimes needs consistency checks on backups to properly continue to backup databases. Easy to restore anything to production or to another location.

For reliability, GoodSync is beyond comparison. Some of the other tools I tried either fail through the backup/synchronization process, leaving one with unknown status of what has been backed up and what has not, wasting an inordinate amount of time because one has to repeat the whole process. Goodsync, even if it stops because of power glitches can easily pick up where it left after performing the analysis

Return on Investment
Siber Systems, Inc.
  • This has saved many hours of work because occasionally the flash drives die, break, fail or get left behind somewhere. The time to get all the files and software back in working order would take a day or two. By keeping several of them identical with GoodSync, work goes on without missing a beat.
