Only in SyncBackPro Backup of emails stored on a POP3/IMAP4 server
There are two main ways that users can access their email. POP3 (Post Office Protocol 3) is the standard whereby messages are delivered to your computer, put in your mailbox, and are then your responsibility. IMAP (Interactive Mail Access Protocol) is a newer method. IMAP is delivered to the server, and you connect to the server to see your mail. The mail is not stored on your machine. When a message is marked as read, it is marked as read on the server, not on your computer. SyncBackPro allows you to backup both Pop3 and IMAP4 emails.

Only in SyncBackPro Integration with SyncBack Management Service
Remote installations of SyncBackPro can now be managed and monitored from a central location.
The SBM Console (currently in beta) works with SyncBackPro and the SyncBack Management Service (SBM Service - also in beta). All three applications are required and work together to enable the management of backup and synchronization profiles across a network. The SBM Console allows system managers to review the history status of backup profiles, limit client machine access to the backup system, securely restrict user intervention of their backup profiles, and the automatic update of backup profiles.

Only in SyncBackPro Notification about profiles runs, creation, etc.
SyncBackPro V6 c
an use a SysLog server for notification about profiles runs, creation, etc. This new feature set includes a range of settings including: Send status messages to a SysLog server; SysLog hostname or IP address; SysLog port number; SysLog facility number (0 to 23); Send date and time in GMT timezone (the dates & times of the messages can either be in the local timezone or in the GMT/UTC timezone); Send messages in UTF8 (messages can either be in ASCII or UTF8); Prefix messages with username (to help with tracking, the messages sent to the SysLog server can optionally be prefix with the Windows username); Send Test Message to the SysLog server.

Only in SyncBackPro New script functions, function calls, and example scripts
Scripting is a way in which the functionality of SyncBackPro can be changed or extended by writing small scripts. SyncBackPro can use scripts written in any scripting language (supported by the Windows Scripting Host) that is installed on the computer, but typically they are written in VBScript or JScript.
This powerful feature allows you to configure how SyncBackPro works and runs profiles. For example, you could create a script that lets SyncBackPro backup to a database (or anything else you can access). Scripting can also be used to change how profiles run. A number of new scripting functions have been added to version 6. Scripts can now also add their own profile configuration page for easy integration and configuration

Only in SyncBackPro SBHistory scripting object for access to profiles run history
SyncBackPro V6 c
an use a SysLog server for notification about profiles runs, creation, etc. The SBHistory object allows you to refer to a profile's history, e.g. when it was run, who ran it, what the result was, etc.

Backup To or Restore From an Email Server
SyncBackPro allows the user to backup or synchronize their files with an email server whether SMTP, POP3, or IMAP4 (not to be confused with synchronizing emails). This is similar to backing up via FTP, however the backup is made via an email server e.g. Gmail, Yahoo!, etc. SyncBackPro provides advanced customization of the settings that allow the user to define SMTP and POP3/IMAP4 server connection details like "Must use SSL/TLS connection", "Direct SSL/TLS connection", and includes the ability to create a custom email body instead of using the default.

Choose SyncBackSE Scripting Support
SyncBackPro allows the user to configure the program and profiles using their own scripts. Scripts are distinct from the core code of the application, which is written in a different language. Scripting is a way in which the functionality of SyncBackPro can be changed or extended. A script is a set of instructions and is similar to the macro support in Microsoft Office, and Java Script in web pages. SyncBackPro can use scripts written in any scripting language (supported by the Windows Scripting Host) that is installed on the computer.
Choose SyncBackSE SFTP Support
SFTP, or secure FTP, is a program that uses SSH to transfer files. Unlike standard FTP, it encrypts both commands and data, preventing passwords and sensitive information from being transmitted transparently over a network. Functionally similar to FTP, SFTP uses a different protocol, it is not possible to use a standard FTP client to talk to an SFTP server, nor is it possible to connect to an FTP server with a client that supports only SFTP.
Choose SyncBackSE Processes an Unlimited Number of Files
Instead of storing the information in RAM (memory), SyncBackPro uses a database to store details of the files it is copying. This means an unlimited number of files and folders can be processed. SyncBackPro uses RAM for performance but will automatically and seamlessly switch to a database if memory is running low or the number of files reaches a threshold. Using a database is significantly faster when the number of files is in the hundreds of thousands.
Choose SyncBackSE BZip2 Compression
Enjoy a higher compression rate than Zip making FTP and email backups faster, and lessening the load on network backups. BZip2 typically compresses files up to 15% more, is around twice as fast at compression, and six times faster at decompression. Bzip2 compresses files using the Burrows-Wheeler block-sorting text compression algorithm, and Huffman coding. Compression is generally considerably better than that achieved by more conventional LZ77/LZ78-based compressors.

S.M.A.R.T. Warnings
Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology, or S.M.A.R.T., is a monitoring system for computer hard disks to detect and report on various indicators of reliability, in the hope of anticipating failures. Mechanical failures, which are usually predictable failures, account for 60 percent of drive failure. The purpose of S.M.A.R.T. is to warn a user or system administrator of impending drive failure while time remains to take preventative action - such as copying the data to a replacement device.
