GoodSync2Go

Tuesday, May 18th, 2010

GoodSync2Go provides powerful file synchronizing and backup features. Not only powerful and fast, but it also supports multiple jobs to be processed simultaneously.This ensures files from your hard disk or flash drive are synchronized or backed up in just a short span of time. Another commendable feature is its installation method. GoodSync2Go can be installed anywhere you want; either to your hard disk or your flash disk. With this option, you can synchronize files from your USB drive even you’re not on your own computer. The algorithm for synchronization used by GoodSync2Go is intelligent enough to effectively synchronize data from your hard drives and external storage devices.

There’s no question about the performance as far as file synchronization is concerned. But GoodSync2Go fails to come with a very user friendly interface. The user interface is complicated, and lacks explanation about some of the critical functions. It would be better if brief captions about each function were provided so that users could gain a little knowledge about the function even without reading the user’s manual. Also you need to have an Internet connection before you can access user’s manual and FAQ’s.

GoodSync2Go is a synchronization program intended to serve advanced users as its user interface is complicated for novices. However, beginners can also use it as long as they read help files and understand each function. If you’re in need of file synchronization software and you have the right budget, then GoodSync2Go is the software you’re looking for. The price for full license is $39.95, good for multiple users. If you would like to evaluate the product first before buying, a 30 day trial is available for free. Latest release is GoodSync2Go version 8.2.5.6 but updates are ongoing.

Yardis! Backup – Free Realtime Backup

Friday, November 6th, 2009

So you consider yourself to be a wise computer user, taking regular backups now and then, or not so regular if you live in the real world! Which isn’t so good when your computer decides that it’s going to crash out on you! This can mean losing valuable data and valuable time being lost to get your computer back to how it was. Okay, so you say you take very regular backups… what if your backup is at 11 p.m. and your computer has decided to take a dive at 10 p.m.?

Yadis! Back up is a free program that backs up continuously. It does this by monitoring files to see when they change, and when they do, it backs them up there and then! It can save your backups to any place you want, such as an external drive or another partition, it even does remote backups.

Also, this program does not use any strange proprietary formats, so you can easily get your backups up and running again. The software is worth checking out for anyone who has felt the pain of unexpected computer problems which have resulted in the loss of important data and/or having to reinstall and reconfigure programs, which can be very time consuming and frustrating.

I like how if your backup location isn’t available (such as an unplugged external drive) the program will backup to it as soon as it becomes available again.

Also, it’s free! So head on over to the home page and check it out.

LC ISO Creator – Free ISO creation tool

Friday, June 27th, 2008

LC ISO Creator is a freeware tool for creating ISO disk images.

First of all, if you need an explanation of what an ISO image is, well it could be described as something like a zipped archive file that contains all that you have on a CD or DVD, so it’s can come in handy for backing up your CD/DVD media. You can find a more detailed explanation here.

It’s basically a single file that is an exact copy of your disc. This can be kept as a backup of the disc. It can also be mounted and ran as a virtual disc using programs such as one I previously reviewed here.

LC ISO Creator downloads as an exe file, and it requires no installation. You just run the file, and it scans your computer for optical drives. Then insert the disc you wish to make an image of, choose the appropriate drive, and choose ‘create iso’. You’ll be asked to choose an output file location to create the newly created ISO. It’s as simple as that really, does one thing simply and does it well!

Think this could be useful for you? You can download it here.

Humyo.com – Online file storage/streaming

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2008

Online storage seems to be a hot area lately with lots of new sites appearing and HumYo.com is yet another that shows some promise.

First of all, I’ll cut to chase, as most people will want to know if its free and how much space you get. Yes, there is a free option with a whopping 25GB of storage space for photos, music and videos, and also 5GB for non media files such as documents. It offers streaming of media and embedding in web pages. They also claim to keep your data very safe,as the Humyo storage is located in a former gold bullion vault! Although I didn’t find a privacy policy on the site (let me know if you find one) the answer here, is reassuring enough where privacy is concerned.

The one potential downside is that free accounts that haven’t been used in 90 days get deleted, so you may want to only sign up to this if you plan on using it regularly or if you have everything backed up elsewhere, but they will send you notice through email if you are nearing the 90 day limit.

Maintenance Pro

Wednesday, February 27th, 2008

Maintenance Pro helps keep track of preventive and repair maintenance for equipment inventory of an organization. It could be for tracking facility maintenance, machinery, or office equipment.

Pros: Whether tracking facility equipment, office equipment, machinery, or any type of object that requires maintenance, this application helps keep track of the maintenance schedule and also the regular repair work. An unlimited number of asset items could be tracked through the program, a category structure is created to group equipment in a proper order. Color coded entries on the spreadsheet like track sheet shows what needs attention right away. Preventive maintenance schedule of each category can be created, this can be by date or meter.

Meter being a equivalent value for each type of equipment. This can be number of hours of operation for an air-conditioner or straight mileage for a vehicle. One can define periods or ‘season” of inactivity when such tracking need not be maintained. The warning period can be defined too, the period of days prior to actual schedule one wants an alert. Color coding adds value to the alert system further. Red coded entries could be for immediate maintenance items while yellow coded items could mean equipment due for maintenance due in a week, for example.

Repair work is triggered by initiating a work order by populating maintenance items & parts automatically and creating a itemized detail of parts & labor too. As details about an asset could be maintained, define fields required for assets of the organization. !00 odd reports can be generated by the program, filtering the data to be compiled into a report is flexible and can be defined by the user. Parts inventory, purchase orders and invoicing data can be maintained easily. An employee database also could be linked to the main data table.

Cons: Like most data based applications, data needs to be updated religiously else the value diminishes very fast.
