Wanna sync Two Harddisks / Two Folders : GRSYNC is there for you!!!!

1.   I have two harddisks of 500 gb and I have loads of data in both...but i could never find out time to set my data at one place and then make a clone kindda or a bakup of the other...it is a herculean task if you keep updating your one harddisk regulary...so the crude rule says that you must copy the updated folder to the backup drive and then keep replacing the older one's....but if the data is too much and the files are in thousands and you have lesser time wouldn't you like to simply click one button and auto syn the complete folder or the harddrive at one go!!!!!What if you have the following GUI that give a whole lot of options to play around...like in the screen shot below :

 
 
2.  Isn't this simple and great...no need to bug yourself trying to find what was old and what is newer...what to keep and what not to keep... you simply see the options above and you will be able to figure out how helpful this utility can be if u have not been suing this till date....The best part is that it is very simple to use.

3.   Grsync is a Graphical User Interface (GUI) for the rsync synchronization tool under Linux / Unix System. There are also ports of Grsync on Windows and OS X platforms. Grsync is released under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL), so it is free software, and makes use of the GTK+ UI toolkit. In addition, it has support for the Unity user interface. It can be effectively used to synchronize local directories and supports remote targets (although in a limited way).

How do u install this in FEDORA ?

 4.   A simple type yum install grsync with root privileges will do the needful.....

  1. I think now you are going to think only about Linux.
    Anyway I use syncback which is for windows and it has got same kind of complex options for sync and backup.
