Allway Sync Review

Allway Sync

Allway Sync is an efficient backup and file synchronization program with an array of features that provides seamless synchronization and verification, portable U3 versions as well as USB versions available for purchase.

This software can easily synchronize between desktop PCs, laptops, external hard drives, USB flash drives and remote FTP/SFTP or WebDAV servers – and Macs via Sync Gateway.

Features

File synchronization software has come a long way over time, offering various features to synchronize files across various devices (desktop PCs, laptops and external storage such as USB sticks or U3 enabled devices) as well as across networks.

Allway Sync is an award-winning program that boasts uncompromising reliability and an intuitive user experience. You can use Allway Sync to synchronize data across desktop PCs, laptops, removable drives and FTP/SFTP servers, as well as various online storage solutions such as Google Docs, Dropbox or Amazon S3. Allway’s advanced synchronization algorithms guarantee accurate bidirectional updates.

Its unique interface does an outstanding job of delineating which folders will be synchronized, with dedicated fields for selecting source type from a drop-down list and entering target folders either through browsing or typing them directly into an input field. While its user-friendly and intuitive nature make for an enjoyable experience overall, newcomers may experience difficulties configuring advanced synchronization settings.

Allway Sync’s unique approach to synchronization enables it to identify actual file changes rather than simply using system clocks as a barometer of which version of a document is the newest, helping avoid conflicts between folders synchronized under it and keeping older file versions for possible data loss situations. Furthermore, users can bind folders or directories directly with drive characteristics for added redundancy.

Another key feature is the option to create a backup copy of an original file before making changes, making this feature especially helpful when working collaboratively on documents that could lose their most recent versions. Users can select specific files and folders they would like copied as well as set an interval when each backup should be created.

Allway Sync goes beyond traditional synchronization to provide data backup and restore across multiple devices, including mobile phones. Furthermore, its synchronization functionality can clone Dell laptop hard drives as well as transfer data between Windows 7 and 10. While its use for personal purposes is free of charge, any commercial use will incur a premium payment fee.

Pricing

Allway Sync offers some of the most attractive pricing structures for file synchronization software on the market. Personal use is free, while processing more than 40,000 files within any 30-day period requires upgrading to a pro version; furthermore, its Pro edition comes equipped with free 12 month subscription and 10GB cloud storage via GoodSync.

Reliability

This application operates in one-way mode and can synchronize two folders at the same time, copy files over networks using an intermediate removable drive and even synchronize multiple jobs simultaneously with individual synchronization parameters for each job. As a result, it offers an excellent solution for moving data between work environments and home environments.

Allway Sync’s security is unparalleled: encrypted data transfers use an RSA key for encrypted transfers; only authorized users are able to access synchronized files. In addition, an all-encompassing database stores synchronization records so you can recover them in case of disaster.

As soon as a file is modified locally, its modification time stamp is also updated on its destination side – potentially leading to files on the synchronization server to be considered more recent than their local versions. When this occurs, a synchronizer can detect this discrepancy and correct timestamps accordingly.

Allway Sync’s ability to synchronize locked files is especially helpful when used for applications like PST and database files, though please be aware that Allway Sync does not work with shared drives or NAS devices.

Allway Sync’s website offers solutions for common issues and an FAQ section, while email tech support may take time before responding.
