SyncBackFree is a free file backup & synchronization program that can be used with hard drives, removable media (e.g. USB keys), FTP servers, ZIP archives, and network shares. It’s easy to use, but includes many options for the power user.

IMPORTANT! If you are using Google Storage (not via the S3 interface) then you must switch to using private keys due to security restrictions Google are implementing. See this KB article for details.

IMPORTANT! Google are also implementing security restrictions on access to Gmail. If you are using Gmail with SyncBack you may need to switch to using application passwords. See this KB article for details.
