Backup, sync and secure folders with Toucan

Toucan is a small freeware that allows us to synchronize, backup and secure your data. The GUI is so simple and divided into seven tabs, allowing us to easily find the function that we need.

 There are four synchronization mode for Toucan: copy, update, mirror (copy/update) and equalize.

As for the backup function, Toucan supports complete, update and differential type. The backup file can be in the format of zip or the smaller size 7-zip.

The third feature of Toucan, secure data, use AES-256 encryption via ccrypt. AES is one of the most popular algorithm used in symmetric key cryptography. AES is fast and also require less memory.

As a conclusion, Toucan is not only a good and simple tool for backup and synchronization tasks, but can also encrypt important files and folders.

If you have any other suggestions, please don't hesitate to leave a comment.
