SyncBack Touch is a Windows service that works alongside SyncBackPro or SyncBackSE to allow remote backups and data synchronization. In other words, it enables you to connect to a remote computer and use it as a backup source or destination.
You must deploy SyncBack Touch on the computer that you want to access remotely. On the other hand, SyncBackPro or SyncBackSE must be installed on the workstation you want to manage backup profiles from. Please note that no other edition of SyncBack supports the Touch service.
As SyncBack Touch is a Windows service, it does not feature a standard interface or a configuration window. However, if the service is running, SyncBackPro and SyncBackSE will be able to establish remote connections, and not necessarily in the same network.
To use the remote access service, you must create a new profile in SyncBackPro or SyncBackSE. No matter whether you want to perform backups, data copying or synchronization, SyncBack Touch can be chosen as a source or a destination during profile setup.
If the target PC is on the same network, your SyncBack app should be able to automatically detect its presence and fill in the hostname and the port number. Otherwise, you will have to fill this information yourself.
If you activated the impersonation feature during the installation of SyncBack Touch, then the Windows credentials of the remote PC will also be required.
Thanks to SyncBack Touch, the two editions of SyncBack mentioned above get an additional feature: remote backup and synchronization. Furthermore, SyncBack Touch is also available for MacOS and Android, which means you will be able to backup your phone's data on a Windows PC.
