I know this has come highly recommended here on dc over the years. Surprised a little at the price - I see it's now (without discount) more expensive than Syncovery (formerly SFFS) which I always think of as the best backup software out there.
Syncback touch sounds interesting, but very expensive if you're paying for it -- I'm thinking long run here -- I dont know what their upgrade pricing is like.

What's the difference between the versions?  I didn't see a comparison anywhere on the site.

Thanks!  I was looking for that, but couldn't find it!

Looking at that and comparing, it seems that Syncovery is a better deal.  The only place that this might outstrip it is performance, but that would have to be tested.

Has anyone used both?

The prices are similar (Syncback Pro shows as $5 less than Syncovery Professional edition for me - maybe that's different for a quote in something other than USD?), but one thing to keep in mind is that for home use Syncback's single license allows install on 5 machines.  Syncovery's single license allows install on multiple machines, but only for use one at a time and by only a single user.

I haven't used Syncovery.  I have used SyncbackPro for quite a while: the UI can be complex, but I've found that the software's functionality is great.  And once the backup jobs are set up you don't really have to navigate the complex UI.

I haven't tried the Syncback Touch feature for phone backups yet.  Keep in mind that each Syncback Pro or SE license includes 2 "Touch" connection licenses.

The add-on Touch license costs does seem expensive  - $35 for each additional device seems like a lot.
