Toucan logoToucan 2.0.1 has been released. Toucan is a tool for advanced users that allows you to sync, backup and secure files on your portable device. This new release has improved sync abilities and translations. It's packaged in Format for easy use from any portable device and integration with the Suite. And it's open source and completely free.

Read on for more details...


Toucan Screenshot Toucan is a small utility allowing you to synchronise, backup and secure your data with more options than the built in suite utilities. Its features include:

  • Four synchronization modes, copy, update, mirror and equalize.
  • Four backup modes, complete, update, incremental and restore, in industry standard zip and 7-zip files
  • AES-256 encryption using ccrypt.
  • Command line support, allows you to create a batch file for repeated jobs

New In This Release

Toucan 2.0.1 fixes a number of bugs in the 2.0 release. It now also uses MD5 checksums to compare files in Sync and a right click menu has been added to easily exclude files and folders by their name or extension. Polish and Hungarian translations have also been added, thanks go to their translators. Installer / Format

Toucan is packaged in a Installer so it will automatically detect an existing installation when your drive is plugged in. And it's in Format, so it automatically works with the Suite including the Menu and Backup Utility.


Toucan is available for immediate download from the Toucan homepage. Get it today!

Thanks for all your work on this Steve.

It has taken me an age to find any portable software that comes close to even matching the otherwise excellent freeware Syncback, but I have sufficient confidence that Toucan is it. It does what I need it to, without fuss and I can take it with me anywhere I go.

Nice work Steve.
