Siber Systems has released GoodSync for Mac (, a Mac OS X version of its Windows utility for backing up and synchronizing files between computing devices. The software is purportedly able to sync as many as five million files at once.
GoodSync for Mac supports Mac OS X 10.4, 10.5 and 10.6. There’s a free version for personal use. GoodSync for Mac Pro, the professional version featuring unlimited jobs and file synchronization plus free Web and toll-free support, is available for US$29.95.
With GoodSync, photos, music, videos, even entire hard drives can be backed up and/or synchronized via USB cable, local networks and the web, according to William Carey, vice president of marketing for Siber Systems. It not only can synchronize a user’s entire data collection, but also analyzes, filters and displays results of syncing operations, providing confidence that duplicates are avoided and only needed files are synced, he adds. GoodSync for Mac supports high-speed remote backups via the Web using WebDAV, FTP, FTPS and Amazon S3 protocols.
