What is FreeFileSync?

FreeFileSync is an Open-Source folder comparison and synchronization tool. It is optimized for highest performance and usability without restricted or overloaded UI interfaces.

How to use it?


    * 1. Choose left and right directories.
    * 2. "Compare" them.
    * 3. Select synchronization settings.
    * 4. Press synchronize to begin synchronization.



Key Features

    * Compare files (bytewise or by date) and synchronize them.
    * No limitations: An arbitrary number of files can be synchronized.
    * Unicode support.
    * Network support.
    * Synchronization database for propagation of deleted files and conflict detection
    * Support for multiple folder pairs with distinct configuration
    * Full support for Windows/Linux Symbolic Links and Windows Junction Points.
    * Lean & easily accessible UI: Highly optimized for speed and huge sets of data.
    * Algorithms coded in C++ completely.
    * All progress indicators optimized for maximum performance!
    * Create Batch Jobs for automated synchronization with or without GUI.
    *
          o Focus on usability: Only necessary functionality on UI: no overloaded menus or icon jungle.
          o Select all folders via drag & drop.
          o Last used configuration and screen settings are saved automatically.
          o Maintain and load different configurations by drag & drop, load-button or commandline.
          o Double-click to start external application (e.g. show file in Windows Explorer)
          o Copy & paste all grid data as text
          o Delete superfluous/temporary files directly on main grid.
          o Right-click context menu.
          o Status information and error reporting
          o Sort file-lists by name, size or date.
    * Support for filesizes larger than 4 GB.
    * Option to move files to Recycle Bin instead of deleting/overwriting them.
    * Ignore directories "\RECYCLER" and "\System Volume Information" with default Filter. (Windows only)
    * Localized versions are available for many languages.
    * Delete before copy: Avoid disc space shortages for large sync-jobs.
    * Filter functionality to include/exclude files from synchronization (without requiring a re-compare!).
    * Include/exclude specific files from synchronization temporarily.
    * Create sync jobs via GUI to synchronize automatically (can be scheduled or executed via double-click).
    * Handle daylight saving time changes on FAT/FAT32 volumes correctly.
    * Portable version (.zip) available.
    * Native 64-Bit version.
    * Support for \\?\ path prefix for unrestricted path length. (Windows only)
    * Check for updates from within FreeFileSync automatically.
    * Copy locked files using Windows Volume Shadow Copy Service. (Windows only)
    * Create regular backups with macros %time%, %date% within directory names
    * Copy file and folder create/access/mo
