FreeFileSync Backup (PC/Mac/Linux)

Although I've been backing up my computers to the cloud for a while now, I also like to keep another physical backup nearby as a fail-safe measure, and since it's usually faster to access and restore.

I've tried about 5 different file backup programs, and this open source program (which works on PCs, Macs and Linux) is by far the best.

It allows you to create various presets of backups, which include settings such as: source and destinations directories, which types/sizes of files to include or exclude and how to synchronize the directories (one way, two way, mirroring, etc.)

You can use the "Compare" functionality to compare the source and destination directory and get a preview of which files will be copied, moved or deleted - even before your run the backup.
