Great file synchronization tool, can be set to automatically synchronize files and folders on the local PC, in network, or across the internet and it works with multiple devices too. I I sync a special folder for music albums I want on the Galaxy S3 (Android) turn on the GoodSync server and it syncs up what I have set in the PC folder. GoodSync running on the PC handles the transfers. If I delete a folder on the PC, it’s removed from the phone as well. I use it as a very efficient and well-managed backup for document files and folders rather than try to retrieve them from my usual backup system if a drive fails. That way I have them instantly when I need them handy on another drive somewhere. Yes, you can even sync with Amazon S3 cloud services which is wonderful for web developers and WordPress users who want streaming from the cloud on the web sites.
I have been using Roboform for years. It keeps track of my hundreds and hundreds of passwords and logins and key data that I want encrypted and hidden. Using ONE MASTER PASSWORD which, for me, is quite robust, not unsimilar to something like this: !x4$&9j@&x which becomes somewhat improbable that someone could guess or brute-force it. One password controls thousands of others. I log into the bank, it asks for the master password once during any given session (times out when you say) and it goes to the web site and logs in for your. One click. And it gets them right every time. My only failure is to forget to SAVE the passwords when it prompts to. I use Roboform Everywhere subscription for as many devices as I want for $20 a year. It’s worth it.
Microsoft got this right for sure. I am certain there are features people want in it and quirks it has, but what a bundle of capability for keeping notes. With my SkyDrive (what is this called now?) from Microsoft, I get wonderful cloud synchronization with any PC I am regularly using. Update on one machine, it appears on the next. I even have a OneNote app for my Samsung Galaxy S3 that syncs up with the cloud so my shopping list is ready when I arrive at Trader Joe’s.
Gmail is a wonderful email account system for Google that does a wonderful job of managing my email. I hook it up to Outlook and set it as IMAP and organize inbound messages into functional folders with filters so that my inbox stays “unusual” and my usual stuff goes where I want it if I need it. I can create “local” filters but most of the horsepower is at Google doing the filtering for me. That way when I open Outlook on any PC in my network, it’s the same.
I use an application addon for Outlook called Gsync-It to synchronize my Google calendar and tasks. If you use other applications like ToodleDo or Evernote (there are others) you can set up synchronization to them as well. It’s so neat to set an appointment anywhere (phone, Google Calendar, Outlook) and have Google text me a reminder and of course it shoes up on all devices.
