[Updated] Toucan Portable

9 07 2008

Version: 1.2.2
License: Freeware
Description: Toucan is a small utility allowing you to synchronise, backup and secure your data with more options than the built in suite utilities. It is split up into 5 tabs, allowing you to easily find the function that you want. This version features: four synchronisation modes, copy, update, mirror and equalise, backup and restore in industry standard zip and 7-zip files, encryption using the BURP updated blowfish algorithm, command line support, allows you to create a batch file for repeated jobs, portable variables, point to places on you USB drive no matter what its drive letter is.

Important Note For 1.1 Upgraders / Blowfish Users: All encryption in Toucan 1.1 used Blowfish. From 1.2 on, Toucan defaults to Rijndael. If you wish to decrypt files encrypted with Toucan 1.1, you must select Blowfish as the decryption routine. The Blowfish method files are encrypted such that the decrypter can not tell if your password is correct, so if you enter an incorrect password it will corrupt your files. Always be sure to back up your data. Rijndael is now the default (and recommended) encryption method as it does not have this issue.
