Allway Sync: Free Software for Data Backup or Synchronization August 21, 2007

Allway Sync Software

Synchronizing, transferring or backing up data can be a tricky process for the average computer user.  It is a topic that comes up often when I talk to clients because data loss is a person’s biggest nightmare. 

Some of my previous blog entries have talked about various products and services to help backup data.  (See Mozy – online data backupWestern Digital Passport External Hard Drive and Supercopy.)   Well, I’m about to add another product to the list.

Allway Sync is a good, user-friendly software product for synchronizing or backing up data.  It is free for personal use while business users should purchase a license and upgrade to the pro version.

Using the software, data can be synchronized between a PC and an external hard drive or between two networked computers.  The software allows for two-way synchronization (both data locations receive the most current copy of each data file) or one-way synchronization, which is essentially copying your data from one location to another and creating a backup.

After the backup job is configured, Allway’s software will analyze the files to be backed up and report on any modifications or deletions.   The user can then review the report prior to synchronizing.

Allway’s web site offers a more comprehensive list of software features.

I think Allway Sync software will work well for:

  1. Users who need to synchronize files between networked PCs.
  2. Users who have an external hard drive but no software to help automate a regular backup process.

 Allway Sync is a well designed piece of software that also manages to be easy to use.  Other people think so too.  Take a look at quotes from other software users who like to use Allway Sync.

Regardless of how you do it, just be sure you backup your data.  Computer hard drives will crash sooner or later and an ounce of prevention is much less expensive than a pound of cure.

Back up is very important.
Every time you make a file change you risk losing files,or a system crash.

Hi Mike:

Good posting!

I have been reading about the online backup and storage industry for a while now. It is becoming a commonly accepted technology these days.

For online backup news, information and articles, there is an excellent website:


This site lists more than 400 online backup companies and ranks the top 25 on a monthly basis.

It also features a CEO Spotlight page, where senior management people from the industry are interviewed
