Hello, welcome to Best Backup Software Review. Today we will review a great software called Syncovery. Syncovery is a great backup that offers multiple cloud backup storage. Not like Backblaze, this standalone backup software uses third party cloud storage to store your data. You can choose to save your data in Google Drive, OneDrive, Box, Mega, Amazon S3 and many others. This software does not offer cloud storage on their server. On this Syncovery review, we will uncover all features in this cloud backup software.

We were downloaded and tested the new Syncovery version 7 which is the latest version when this article is being written. We were pretty amazed with the features inside this cloud backup software. This software support many backup destinations which is more than enough for both personal or business users. We can put our laptop, desktop or even our server to the backup list easily. We can backup local drive, external drive or network drive with this software. This program comes with a nice and simple wizard mode which lets us define what to backup and where to save the backup. It also offers Advanced Mode for more control. At first, you may see the client program is a bit complex (advanced mode). But, after you dig it deeper, you will see how powerful it is. No matter you are running Windows, Mac or Linux, the developer covers them all.
You don’t have to worry about file types. Syncovery does not have file type limitation. You can backup everything, any kind of files without problems. It can backup standard files and folders, VMWare Virtual machines, but you cannot backup your Windows system image using this software.
Performance and Security
When performing cloud backup, there are two main things that you should aware. The backup speed/performance and also the security. As far as we test the software, there are no major issues with the performance. Our backup were completely finished with no errors. Also, the transmission is protected with strong encryption technology.
Plan and Pricing
There are several plans available but we only focus on Personal and Professional version. The Personal version you can get for $34.9 and the Pro version is about $59.90. Please note that the standard version does not support FTP and any cloud storage. So if you are willing to backup and sync your data to the cloud, you need Professional version.
Syncovery is an ideal software for both personal and business. The features in this backup software are more than enough for standard users. The backup performance also very good. Our only complain was the Standard version which does not include any cloud service. It’s a bit strange because we need at least one cloud backup is supported with this version.
