Toucan Review

Tina de Pierre
A file synchronization and backup utility that's portable
A review of Toucan by Tina de Pierre

Toucan is a freeware project which supports backups and synchronizations of specific files and folders.

With Toucan, you can perform the necessary tasks to keep documents backed up and up-to-date; it is fully portable and also supports many command line commands for advanced users.

If you have a portable flash drive, then this program can run perfectly off of it, keeping your important documents up-to-date.

Toucan can clone files and directories, protect from data loss and perform backup operations.

Toucan features and highlights:
  • Five synchronization modes, Copy, Mirror, Equalize, Move and Clean
  • Backup and restore in industry standard Zip, 7-Zip and GZip files
  • AES-256 encryption using ccrypt
  • Complete command line system
  • Rules system that allows you to easily exclude files based on their name or regex
  • Advanced scripting system using the Lua programming language
  • Built variables for basic functions such as the date and time
  • Supports more complex variables, too
  • Full drag and drop support

Toucan is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from backup software without restrictions. Toucan 3.1.0 is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).
