If you have a folder on your Windows machine named “Important” (and who doesn’t?) you probably should keep a backup of it somewhere that’s not the same machine. But instead of dealing with complex data security and server applications that do way more than you need, just get a copy of today’s discount software promotion, Acrosync!

Acrosync syncs entire folders with Linux, Mac, and NAS destinations without requiring the installation of server software. Just install Acrosync, and you’ll have a file system monitor that instantly detects file changes, automatically syncing new and modified files with your Linux or Mac machine, or NAS. And if you want absolute one to one mirroring, you can configure Acrosync to also propagate deletions, so your Windows and Linux/Mac/NAS will always be perfectly aligned.

So stop paying Dropbox for limited space, grab Acrosync, and enjoy unlimited storage for a single, one-time license fee! Throw in features that Dropbox lacks, like Time Machine-style backups and Volume Shadow Copy, and you’ll see there’s a whole world of reasons to pick up Acrosync today!

This promotion includes the following:
Acrosync for Windows v1.1 ($49.99)
Acrosync for Mac ($49.99)

_*_ Is this a beta version since this is what is shown in the image of this offer?

Gang User It is not a beta version any more. The current version is 1.1.

Jeffrey Krzysztow When you say "Currently Acrosync runs on Windows (XP, Vista, 7, and 8), Mac OS X, iOS, and Android.", is there a version for Android or it is already built into Android?

I currently use a product called GoodSync, how is this different? Better?
Jan 11 2015 at 9:50am Copy Link
Gang User Yes, there is an Android version available on Google Play.

GoodSync uses ftp to connect to computers, which is an insecure and inefficient protocol, and requires an ftp server to be installed on computers. Acrosync uses the rsync protocol and doesn't require server side installation.

User1 Hello --
Would like to try it at the special price. Is there a 15-30 day refund if it doesn't meet my needs?

We have multiple Windows machines around our house (7 now for 3 people) plus a Linux box & NAS. Will you provide a general or volume license for this situation?

Thank you.

Roxana Castañeda on "the fine print", it says: "Acrosync is licensed per computer, and not per user."

Don't quite understand.

It it syncs my pc files with my mac files and ipad, iphone, external drive aren't those several computers?

Do I install it on the PC or MAC and then tell it all the other hardware available or what?

Gang User Acrosync is actually an rsync client. It uses the rsync protocol to sync files with servers that support the rsync protocol (which include most Max/Linux/NAS without server side installation).

You can install on your PC or MAC and then tell it to sync with another MAC or a Linux Computer, or a NAS.

Roxana Castañeda will it slow my computers?
Jan 11 2015 at 3:07pm Copy Link
Gang User When it is not syncing or backing up, it won't. When it does, however, the slowdown would be hardly noticeable, especially on dual-core or more computers, since Acrosync only uses one core at most, and you still has another on your disposal for other stuff.
Acrosync LLC - Jan 11 2015 at 5:14pm Copy Link
Gang User If you want to sync files between Windows and MAC, you just need to buy one license for Windows. Acrosync running on Windows will be able to sync files with your MAC without the need to install any software on mac (you'll need to turn on the Remote Login option under Sharing in System Preferences for MAC).

Roxana Castañeda ok, thanks. I just bought it. I hope I can make it work because I didn't understand much of what says your website.

_*_ Bitdefender blocks access to the website. This is a rare occurrence so I did not proceed on to the site. Not sure what made it trip my antivirus software but I rather not find out.

Michael R. > Transfer of a license to another owned computer is not allowed.
Does that mean, if I buy a new computer, because my mainly-used current one gets defect, I can not install this program on the new one, without buying a new license?

I am not an expert, but can I make sure, the data, being backuped do not leave my LAN-Range?

In general - if I understand it correctly - the backup-drive can be located anywhere, it just needs a TCP/IP-address: Is it possible to add any kind of encryption?

Is it perhaps even possible to encrypt/decrypt the file/filename with the call of an external program before/after the transfer? I suppose, this would be a nice feature for all software saving data externally... Perhaps I haven't understood it, but how else someone can be sure, that his data is safe (in todays times...)?

(This is not a rhetorical question: I really have a bad feeling to send my data to some cloud service, either unencrypted on the transport-way or encrypted with the software-developer's software...)

I hope this deal will last another day, so I can test it with my NAS...

Gang User Unfortunately Bitdefender flagged our website as malware. I've contacted their customer support to have their technicians to check our website again and hopefully it should be resolved in a few days.

Gang User Yes, if you buy a new computer then you will have to buy another Acrosync license after the 15 day trial ends.

The file transmission is strictly between the computer running Acrosync and whatever server you choose to sync with. No third party is involved. And the transmission is already encrypted if you use the default 'Over SSH' mode.

Currently file encryption/decryption are not supported.

Michael R. > Yes, if you buy a new computer then you will have to buy another Acrosync license after the 15 day trial ends.

Thanks for the honesty. But perhaps you might reconsider that. Nearly every lifetime-sellers offer the possibility to transfer the license, if the former computer does not work any more. So, as long as it stays this way, it's a no-go for me...
