How does Online DataBackup Sync solution work?
Online DataBackup Sync is seamlessly incorporated into our application - providing another service alongside backup, sharing and storage. Online DataBackup Sync provides the flexibility to define any number of sync operations such that you can have one sync running between your Windows and Mac machines containing photos and another between your Windows desktop and external drive containing important business documents.

To begin the synchronization process, you must first select the folders you would like to backup (or upload) to Online DataBackup. Once complete, it is as easy as selecting any number of folders across any number of machines to synchronize together.

On the processing end, our Sync algorithm works diligently to compare all the journals and the time-stamps associated with each synced folder and makes the smartest judgment on which file is the most recent. And don't worry if one of your computer's clocks forgets to change, you can always retrieve any previous version of any document and make that current just in case. At Online DataBackup we leave nothing up to chance and save everything for the 'just in case' scenarios.

NOTE: If a backup is occurring, Online DataBackup will wait until the backup is complete in order to ensure the files being synced are the most up to date available.

How does Online DataBackup keep my data secure when using Sync?
As with any operation being performed through the secure data backup client, Online DataBackup Sync retains the strictest and most secure privacy measures in the marketplace - ensuring that a 3rd party will never be able to access your data during the synchronization process for any reason (including Online DataBackup employees).
