How about enlightening us?ߘ

Well, versioning for one. If your backup consists solely of syncing your main data folder to another drive nightly and you need overwritten or deleted files from two weeks ago, you're screwed.

I use Goodsync and like Mike said if you just sync you are screwed if you need a file that was deleted since the last sync/backup. Goodsync does have a way to hold deleted files for a period of time. My deleted files are held on the NAS for 30 days and then removed. So I can go back 30 days and find something that was deleted from one of our computers data folder. After that it is gone for good.

Syncback can do both backup and sync. And can be scheduled or run manually
