Echosync is a portable, fast and simple software which is using data differential backup, for file backup.
Echosync is a backup software, using data differential sync on a pair of directories
Echosync is targeting simplicity:
Echosync is built to be fast:
Echosync is built to be reliable:
Echosync is built to be versatile:
Although Echosync can save in VHD files, it hasn't been optimized to perform clone disk images. If you intend to make clone disk images using VHD files, for instance to backup your system partition (C:) with all its system files, use the windows embedded software that is provided with the operating system since Windows 7.
Echosync has been developed around four objectives: user friendliness, speed, versatility, reliability.
Echosync is entirely free. It doesn't have spyware, adware or any other malware. There are even no advertisement on this website. The author is bearing all development and publishing costs and is only supported by free donation that you are willing to give to encourage his work and development. Thank you in advance to all of those who have already contributed or are willing to do so.
No installation is required for Echosync. It may then be copied and ran from the very backup location (external HDD, USB key, etc.).
Once backup profiles have been created, all operations are achieved from a central window, designed to be ergonomic and functional.
Files can be saved in a VHD (Virtual Hard Drive) chosen by the user. Echosync doens't save data using proprietary format, VHD files can be opened and used without the use of Echosync.
Echosync is backing up data using differential synchronization. This means that only modified data that have been modified since the last backup set are copied.
Echosync works also with paths and file names longer than 255 characters, copies symbolic links (not linked data) and locked files (in use by other software).
Echosync can detect moved or renamed files since the last backup. Thus, Echosync will be able to modify the destination path without suppressing the file then creating it.
