Storage and backup applications are among the most critical in any major corporation. Because missing or corrupted backups tend to show up only when someone needs to use them to recover from some data disaster, there's not much room for error. Lost data equals lost revenue and possibly legal liability, if the lost data are relevant to the financial performance of the company.


Available in both paid and free varieties, SyncBack specializes in flexible folder synchronization across networks using either FTP or normal file transfer.

It's designed to let you pick and choose among folders to back up, allows for regularly scheduled updates and, because of its support for FTP and file-level backup options, can help automatically update content on a Web site by sync'ing with folders on your hard drive.

More usefully, that same feature can back up your hard drive to one of a range of online storage providers (free, of course).
