editor's review






PowerFolder offers you the possibility to backup your files, or sync them across multiple computers, regardless of the operating system used on each workstation. The app allows you to upload your files to the PowerFolder cloud, or you can use the server version to create your own private cloud.

Powerful backup tool that can work on the most popular operating systems

To get started, you must register for a PowerFolder account and download one of the client applications that are available for the Windows, iOS, Android, OS X, and Linux platforms. By default, these clients will backup your files to the PowerFolder cloud, and you can use your account to sync them across multiple devices.

In addition, PowerFolder also provides a server version, but unfortunately you need to use either a Windows or a Linux computer to setup the server. However, this option is very interesting because you have the possibility to create a private cloud service.

Effortlessly backup your files and synchronize the changes periodically

Working with the PowerFolder OS X client is fairly intuitive: upon installation, a new PowerFolder directory will be create in your User folder, and all the included subdirectories will be automatically synced to the PowerFolder cloud. You have the option to pause the checks and syncs for a certain time period, or you can disable the functions permanently.

Note that via the PowerFolder Preferences you can change the folders basepath, and you can decide how many document versions should be archived and for how long. Moreover, you can quickly switch to the advanced and expert modes in order to change the default server, to customize the notifications, to customize the network settings, or to install plug-ins.

To conclude, the PowerFolder OS X client proposes efficient solutions to backup your files online, or to your private cloud. Moreover, you can also use your account to sync the files between multiple devices.
