Working hard to remain innovative and ahead of the game

It’s evident that the success of the company and its intelligent software is due to the continuous development that the company strives for.

Leah Evans, Top 10 Website Hosting



The features in it are totally worth it from our tests

If you are testing it, even with a modest exposure of cloud-sync products, it won’t take more than a couple of days to grasp its capabilities quickly...SyncBackPro has done an outstanding job of providing such a sophisticated cloud-sync tool.




SyncBack is one of the bests out there

Investing in good backup software is one of the much-needed investments you will need to make. Having a good backup software is integral to the smooth functioning of your enterprise. SyncBack is one of the bests out there with the range of functions and supports it provides along with security to the backup files as well.




Custom backups without sacrificing system performance

The 2BrightSparks team has tailored their backup and recovery solutions to focus on flexibility. We appreciate the fact that SyncBack users can customize the queue of backup processes to align with their business priorities, and we see the SyncBack software as a secure, balanced solution to backup needs — data protection meets system performance. Well done, 2BrightSparks!

Even better than enterprise software

We recently replaced an extremely expensive Enterprise backup solution that was costing us thousands of dollars per year (with limited storage) with SyncBackPro. Not only does it save us a ton of money, but the product actually works BETTER than the expensive enterprise software! We couldn't be happier. SyncBackPro is by far the best backup software on the market.

SyncBackPro Saves the Day!

I don't normally send unsolicited praise to software product developers, but in your case I'm moved to do so. I just wanted you to know that I am extremely happy with all aspects (functionality, reliability, ease of use, documentation, etc) of SyncBackPro (and SE as well). Also I am impressed with your customer communication practices and your very reasonable update/upgrade policies.

Backup Review


SyncBackPro: Best In Class
SyncBackPro is the most powerful backup and synchronization utility in its class.

Geoff Akerlund, BackupReview.com

A Definite Must-Have for the Serious Computer User

Having a backup of your information is more vital now than ever before... There are many such utilities on the market, a lot of which I have tested personally over the years. But none are as useful and user-friendly as the subject of this review: SyncBackPro.


SyncBackPro is a VERY powerful program. It can make your digital life almost worry-free, as far as file integrity and redundancy goes. The verified copy function alone makes it well worth the cost. A simple Windows Copy command doesn’t give you that - you actually would have no idea if a file was copied correctly or not until disaster strikes, and you need the backup file. By then, it would be too late.


I’ve recently run many backups of my digital image library between my NAS box and external drives. Over 40,000 files each time, and not a single problem reported or found.


This app simply works... and works very reliably. A definite must-have for the serious computer user.

SyncBackSE was awarded a World Class Award within six months of its launch in the utility category, July 2005, by PC World Magazine.

SyncBackSE: I Have Nothing But Praise

I haven't had to worry about reliable backups in years. (In fact, I've just run one now.) I've received *real* value for my paltry investment, and I have nothing but praise for software that works, and works extremely well. (If only that was true of other vendors...) I've long recommended you guys to friends. If anything, it works *too* well: so many options to consider! But for OCD types like me, it's ideal.

Paul Havemann, SyncBackSE User

SyncBackPro: Awesome Work 2BrightSparks

Just wanted to say SyncBackPro is a great product. My company just moved to office 365 email system and getting the log email setup was super easy. Also of great benefit was the shared email settings feature, saved so much typing time. Awesome work 2brightsparks.

The Best Customer Service Responses I've Ever Seen

I really like SyncBackFree... been using it for years.


I have to say that this was one of the best customer service responses I've ever seen. And I've seen a lot (I actually teach a university course on customer service best practices).


I didn't realize they [SyncBackSE and SyncBackPro] could be installed in parallel and had assumed the upgrade would overwrite the free version. That is awesome that it doesn't.


Thanks for further reinforcing my confidence in your company.

Craig Froehle, SyncBackFree User



Delivers what it promises

5 out of 5 star rating

Our company has been using SyncBackPro since 2012.

We run a Windows-based office network and have found this program to offer exceptional reliability. SyncBackPro provides us with the required versatility to manage backing up our data. The particular reason we use SyncBackPro over the SycBackFree version is its ability to created versioned copies of our database to safeguard against data corruption events. We are not fully cloud-based and therefore back up to a fire and flood proof drive. However I do know that SyncBackPro has the capability to back up our data to cloud-based services with no problems.

SyncBackPro: It Saved My Skin!

SyncBack is one of the best programs I have ever used. As soon as I tried the free edition I knew that I wanted to buy. After using SE for 5 years I got a new computer and the first program to go on it was SyncBackPro. I didn't even need to evaluate it - I've come to trust that you know what you are doing, and deliver great value for money!


For any Windows developer, SyncBackPro is the ideal backup solution - delivering all you want through a superb UI and working reliably for month after month. It has saved my skin quite a few times.

Superb Customer Service

Thank you for your amazingly expeditious response - especially late on a Sunday evening! I was already a big fan of SyncBackSE, having recommended it to several of my colleagues; but this superb customer service effort has me all the more excited to recommend not only your product, but your company. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

Leigh Martin, Siemens Industry Security Solutions & Services

Polite Upgrade and Excellent Software!

I've just upgraded to version 7. Usually when software vendors do this periodic upgrade ambush, I get very annoyed. But you have made the process so transparent, and so "undemanding", clearly giving the opportunity to continue with the old version, that I was positively pleased to pay for the upgrade. And it's excellent software too!

Quality Software

Thank you for providing this software for so many years.


I purchased SyncBackSE for my business years ago, and have enjoyed it ever since. I recommend it to ALL of my customers - PLEASE continue along the same path, making quality software honestly, and representing it clearly and plainly. So many companies fail miserably at making software appealing - you all do a great job. Thanks!

Great Software with fair prices and license policies

I started with SyncBack Free and purchased SE as I needed support for copying open files. Your prices and license policies are more than fair and your software is excellent. This is how software should be done. Well thought out, great UI, helpful options galore. You have a fan and customer for life.

Jeff Atwell, SyncBackSE User
