  • Backup, Mirror, and Sync Modes
  • Compare files using attributes or CRCs
  • Detection and alerts of corrupted files
  • Detection and alerts of unexpected file modifications on destination outside of backups and mirrors, or sync conflicts (a file was modified on both sides since the last sync)

  • Files are always safe by default, being moved to an identically structured archive directory before being deleted or overwritten
  • Filter files with regular expressions
