The best File Synchronization software of all

File synchronization is a way to sync files and folder to other locations such as external hard drives or USB drives so as to keep data safe. There are two different types of file synchronization including the one-way file synchronization and the two-way file synchronization. The one-way file synchronization is called mirroring. In the one-way file synchronization, the files are copied from the source location to one or more locations but the files are not copied back to the source location.

That is to say, the files are expected to change in one location only. In order to reconcile the changes, the synchronization process can only be one direction.

On the other hand, in the two-way file synchronization, the files are copied in both directions, which means that the files are expected to change in both locations and they are considered equivalent. And nowadays, file synchronization has become increasingly popular because it is an effective way to keep data safe.

Thus, do you want to make a file synchronization so as to protect your files and folders? Or do you know how to sync files and folders with ease in Windows 10/8/7?
