Syncdocs – Google Docs Sync, Migration and Backup

Syndocs is a free Windows software that allows you to back up your files easily to the Google’s cloud. It also synchronizes all your Google Documents files to your PC.  Syndocs is easy to setup.  After downloading and installing Syndocs on your computer, you are required to provide the login details of your Google Docs account.  Syndocs will then appear as a new network drive on your computer. It lets you synchronize and create a backup copy of your documents directly on your computer.  Syndocs supports the file formats that are compatible with the suite of Google (i.e., Docs formats, XLS, PPT, OpenOffice, and PDF).

Syndocs is very easy to use; just select the folders you want to sync and it will be copied online and kept in sync. You can access your files from anywhere, anytime. You just need a PC with an active internet connection or a smartphone to access your files.  Moreover, Syndocs runs in the background, automatically keeping your data safe.  Also, it can process revision history and keep files and folders others share with you synchronized as well.

I think Syndocs is a great tool for teachers and students.  It offers one of the easy ways to sync, backup and access your files from anywhere.  The following video shows the features of Syndocs and demonstrates on how to sync, backup and access your Google Docs.
