Data Sync

Data sync solutions allow synchronizing data between two different folders, often located on two different storage devices connected by some way. Handy Backup contains a set of perfect data synchronization tools, easy to use and reliable to transfer crucial information between storage.

Data Synchronization Techniques

To synchronize the two datasets, you will need some data synchronization algorithm. It must sort data for some parameters making these data "actual", and then copy the "actual" pieces of information from one dataset to another, or between these datasets in both ways (see below).

These are the three basic methods of synchronization between the two datasets:

  • The first dataset overrides the second;
Synchronize Data from the First Folder to the Second
  • The second dataset overrides the first;
  • The two datasets exchange with all actual data. How to operate with different data bearing identical names will settle up by data sync app or by some custom rule of overriding these data.
Mirror Data Sync

When and Where to Use Data Synchronization Algorithms?

The main area of implementation for data synchronization is an exchange between the two devices, when one of it has a limited data capacity being compared to the second (e.g. between a PC and a smartphone). The second device functions as synchronizing and backup storage unit.

You can make data sync for actual datasets of contacts, emails, workflow files and folders and so on. Therefore, many methods for data synchronization exist. As an example, you can set up database content of mirrored websites to go through the regular data synchronization to cloud.

Data Synch Between Different Devices

Software for Data Synchronization

It is too difficult and risky task to perform data sync manually. The most effective way is to use some software to synchronize files and folders. Modern data sync technologies presume that a user has capabilities to sync data between online and local storage devices via almost any transferring protocol.

Advantages of Handy Backup as Data Sync Tool

Multi-Storage Functionality

As data sync app, Handy Backup allows to sync files between computers, local and mapped disks, external USB drives, NAS and SAN units, network machines and shared resources, FTP servers (with SFTP and FTPS) and almost all clouds such as S3, WebDAV, Google Drive, Dropbox and OneDrive.

Data Synchronization Between Different Devices

Easy to Use Interface

A user can control all tasks in Handy Backup by using a simple, modern-looking graphical user interface (GUI) and a well-developed system of data synchronization tools for different storage devices and methods. Users can create new data synchronization tasks in simple or advanced mode for convenience.

Scheduled Data Synchronization

Automating Data Synchronization

Handy Backup allows continuous running of automated data sync tasks by using an internal scheduler that provides a tool for starting at exact time and repeating a task with an interval from a minute to some months. In advanced mode, it also allows triggering data synchronization by system event.
