Toucan - Portable sync, backup and secure

Many of you know the usefulness of portable apps, which you carry around on your thumb drive. Here's one that is so tiny, yet provides more features than many full desktop apps. From the developer:

"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 7 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, with support for complete backups, updating existing backups and differential backups, as well as restoring files from an archive.
* AES-256 encryption using ccrypt
* Command line support, allows you to create a batch file for repeated jobs
* Variables, point to places on you USB drive no matter what its drive letter is."
