GoodSync is a utility designed to help you back up and sync files between your Mac and multiple types of storage devices. The program might prove to be of good use if you're looking for a simple way to keep your important files in sync between your computer and mobile phone, other Macs or Cloud account.

You can define multiple sync tasks (in this program they are named "jobs"), encrypt the backed up files if needed, choose which types of files to be excluded from the sync process, and so much more. So, the utility gives you access to a lot of useful sync settings which makes the entire backup process effective.

Another advantage is that the program lets you choose between multiple sync schedule modes. For instance, you can configure GoodSync to back up your data at a certain time of the day or as soon as the previously synced files are altered.

The only thing that bothered me while testing the utility was the fact that it occasionally ran slow, especially when switching between the program's screens. Still, this could be happening because of my Mac. Also, the tool works fast when backing up or syncing data.

All in all, GoodSync is a great solution for backing up your important files to other external storage devices and Cloud accounts. It's feature-rich, simple to handle, and comes with a reasonable price.
