Unison - File synchronization tool for Unix and Windows

  •        806

Unison is a file-synchronization tool for Unix and Windows. It allows two replicas of a collection of files and directories to be stored on different hosts (or different disks on the same host), modified separately, and then brought up to date by propagating the changes in each replica to the other. Unlike simple mirroring or backup utilities, Unison can deal with updates to both replicas of a distributed directory structure. Updates that do not conflict are propagated automatically.

rsync - incremental file transfer program for Unix systems


rsync is a file transfer program for Unix systems. rsync uses the rsync algorithm which provides a very fast method for bringing remote files into sync. It does this by sending just the differences in the files across the link, without requiring that both sets of files are present at one of the ends of the link beforehand. It can update whole directory trees and filesystems. It can use rsh, ssh or direct sockets as the transport.
