The first version of SyncBack was released in October 2003. We have another article that lists the release dates for each major version of SyncBack along with historical context. In this article we present screen shots of each major release of SyncBack since V3. All the screen shots are from a display resolution of 1024x768 with a normal DPI. They are also taken on the latest desktop version of Windows available at the time the major version was first released:
Click on the buttons to the left and right of the images to change them.
Starting with V6 the installation process was streamlined to reduce the number of prompts (hence the removal of the Welcome window). SyncBack has always used InnoSetup to create the installation.
The main program window layout has changed very little since V3. The program version number was not displayed in the window caption bar in V3. With V6, the Stop button was introduced, and from V9 the 2BrightSparks and Help buttons were removed from the bottom button panel.
The profile creation wizard has been a part of SyncBack since V4.
In V3 Files & Folders were chosen directly in the Profile Configuration window. Starting with V4 a separate window was used.
In V3 a multi-line tab was used. We then switched to using a vertical tree in V4 and finally vertical and horizontal tabs in V9.
In V3 you could not change the Action.
In V3, the entire log file was in a single HTML file. Starting with V4 it was split into different files.
Groups have been available in SyncBack since V3.
Global Settings were introduced in SyncBackSE V4. Until V6 there weren't many program settings.
Until SyncBackSE V4 was released, there was only a freeware version, so there is no screen shot for V3.
The SyncBack logo's were changed for the first time with the release of V10.
