Grsync is a graphical user interface for rsync.[1] rsync is a differential backup and file synchronization tool widely used in Unix-like operating systems.

Grsync is developed with the GTK+ widget toolkit. Like rsync, Grsync is free and open-source software licensed under the GNU General Public License.[2]


Rsync is a well-known tool for backups in Linux system, which supplies needs to copy a group of files and folders. It can backup every local folder, support SSH tunneling, delta-only synchronization and so on.

But Grsync adds ability for such purposes in graphical user interfaces. rsync's needs learning a pretty complex set of arguments. It is much easier to backup files rather than using rsync in command-line.
