Live file sync and backup for the Mac
Synk is an OS X 10.8.x ("Mountain Lion")-compatible live file synchronizer, designed to make surprisingly sophisticated sync and backup features accessible to everybody. Join the many dedicated users around the world, from grandmothers to Turing Award winners, from universities to movie studios, and even some higher-ups at a certain technology company we all know and love!
Synk 7 features live synchronization–changes are synchronized as they happen. Unlike other products, you don't have to manually run synchronizations, or set up a schedule for when you want syncs to occur.
When your backup is kept up to date live, if a failure happens, your backup copy will be more current. Instead of being days or even weeks old, your backup will have the most recent information possible, and you may not even lose seconds worth of work!
Which hurts more? Having a feather sit on your hand all day, or having it hit with a hammer once at the end of the day? Synk, working live, spreads the work out over time rather than swamping your system by trying to catch up on a big backlog of work all at once.
Plus, when the system was already just working with files, it makes Synk's work with them much faster than going back and doing it later. (For you fellow nerds out there, everything is still in cache, so Synk doesn't have to go to very slow hard disks.) The end result is that Synk working live makes the copying much faster, and causes less load at a time on your system.
Always Ready to Go
Synk's live sync means that you'll almost never be sitting around waiting on it to run. This is great for users with desktops and laptops, or for people that used to have to wait for a backup or a sync at the end of the day. When you're ready to get up and walk out the door—even unexpectedly—Synk's already ready for you, and everything will already be up to date.
Easy Come, Easy Go
Synk's live sync works great with locations coming and going. When you disconnect a backup drive or leave network range from a server, Synk just pauses cleanly and waits for it to come back. When the location becomes available again, Synk automatically detects that and picks back up where it left off, syncing anything that's changed since it last saw the other location.
Conflicts—when a file is modified in more than one location in a sync—are annoying, and live sync makes it much less likely that they'll happen. When your changes immediately show up everywhere else, there's less of a chance for the different copies to diverge.
Stays Out Of Your Way
While we've put a lot of effort into making Synk super fast and efficient, sometimes you're doing something like audio editing or really heavy workloads on huge files and need every single ounce of effort your computer can put forth. No problem; Synk can automatically pause synchronization in a variety of situations, and will pick back up again automatically, keeping you safe, when the need passes.
