By using the SyncBack Management Service (SBMS) you can manage remote installations of SyncBackPro. An alternative is instead of installing SyncBackPro on each computer you install SyncBack Touch on each device (Windows, macOS, Linux or Android). SyncBack then talks to SyncBack Touch on those devices to backup or synchronize with them. SyncBack Touch can also be configured to use SBMS for security (so credentials are centralized).


SyncBack Touch is a cross-platform service (Windows, macOS, Linux and Android) that allows SyncBackPro and SyncBackSE to remotely access a device’s file system in order to perform backup/restore and sync operations.



SyncBack Touch is completely free if you are using it with  SyncBackPro or SyncBackSE V10 or newer.


Install SyncBack Touch on the device you want to access then create a profile on SyncBackPro to copy files to and from that device. For example, backup all your photos as soon as your mobile device connects to your local Wi-Fi!


The benefits of using SyncBack Touch are:


Cross platform support (Windows, macOS, Linux or Android)

There's no need to install SyncBack and configure on each device, instead you install SyncBack Touch on each device

You can backup multiple devices using one installation of SyncBack

As all the profiles are in SyncBack you don't need to do any on the devices using SyncBack Touch

It's free (when used with SyncBackPro or SyncBackSE V10).



SyncBack Touch In The Home


Let's say you have a family and that in addition to your Windows computer, there are several other devices in your home.


You've bought a license to use SyncBackSE to backup your home computer. Your partner uses an iMac so you download and install the macOS SyncBack Touch App. You've got a wi-fi network at home, and so you run SyncBack Touch on the iMac, then make a new backup profile to backup your iMac in SyncBackSE. Your kids also have an Android tablet so you download the SyncBack Touch App and presto - You backup that too - All for the price of a single license of SyncBackSE!


If you want to also backup your Android phones and other devices, you can purchase additional SyncBack Touch licenses to cover them.



SyncBack Touch At The Office


You're a business user and have Windows, macOS, Linux and Android devices. If you've only got Windows computers, that's fine too. You buy SyncBackPro to give you Cloud support and all the flexibility a professional backup solution delivers.
