A simple and fast portable software for differential file synchronization.

Simplicity

  • Echosync is a portable software that does not require installation. It can thus be copied to and run from the synchronization media itself (an external hard disk or USB key, for example).
  • Once the synchronization profiles have been created, all operations are performed from a single window, designed to be as user friendly as possible.
  • Synchronization is unidirectional: the Source is not modified and can be read-only.

Speed

  • Echosync performs a differential synchronization to save the data. This makes it possible to reflect only the changes that have occurred since the last synchronization.
  • Echosync has an algorithm for detecting renamed and/or moved files, which avoids having to delete and then copy all these files to the Destination directory.

Reliability

  • Echosync takes advantage of the Volume Shadow Copy (VSS) allowing it to copy files that are locked for reading.
  • Echosync supports paths longer than 255 characters and symbolic links.

Flexibility

  • Synchronizations can be launched from the command line, allowing you to automate backups with the Windows Task Scheduler.
  • It is possible to perform partial synchronizations, for example, by copying only new items without copying modified items.
