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 2.0.4 has fixed a number of bugs in previous versions. There has also been a massive refactoring of the code, which has fixed a number of memory leaks and improved performance. It also adds the @volume@ variable for getting the volume name of your drive. Finally there are more UI updates. Chinese and Italian localizations have also been added. 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.

It works just fine. I just tried it. And you just posted the same link that's on the download page. If you have further issues, please start a thread in the support forum.

First of all, thanks for your work on Toucan, Steve.
But we are always waiting for the most useful improvement, in my opinion.
The possibility to see in the preview only the changing files.
It would facilitate us a lot the synchronizing operations.
Thank you again
