Software Product Description

FreeFileSync is an Open-Source folder comparison and synchronization tool. It is used for fast and easy configurable sync operations between two folders without restricted or overloaded UI interfaces.


  • Compare files (bytewise or by date) and synchronize them.
  • No limitations: An arbitrary number of files can be synchronized.
  • Subfolders are also synchronized, including empty folders.
  • Network support.
  • Lean & easy accessible UI: Highly optimized for speed and huge sets of data.
  • Algorithms coded in C++ completely.
  • Focus on usability:
    • Only necessary functionality on UI: no overloaded menus or icon jungle.
    • Select folders via drag & drop.
    • Last configuration and screen settings are saved automatically.
    • Maintain and load different configurations by drag&drop, load-button or commandline.
    • Double-click to show file in explorer.
    • Copy & paste support to export file-lists.
    • Delete superfluous/temporary files directly on main grid.
    • Right-click context menu.
    • Progress indicators, status information and error reporting.
    • Sort file-lists by name, size or date.
    • Display statistical data: total filesizes, amount of bytes that will be transfered with the current settings.
  • Easy configurable commandline mode for automated synchronization.
  • Support for filesizes > 4 GB.
  • Option to move files to Recycle Bin instead of deleting/overwriting them.
  • UTC (coordinated world time) is used when comparing file times avoiding problems with time zones or daylight saving time.
  • Automatically ignore directories "\RECYCLER" and "System Volume Information" when comparing and syncing.
  • Localized German version available.
  • Delete before copy: Avoid disc space shortages with large sync-operations.
  • Based on wxWidgets framework => Portable to many operating systems.
  • Filter functionality to include/exclude files from synchronization (without re-compare!).
  • Include/exclude specific files from synchronization manually.
  • Create sync jobs via GUI to synchronize automatically (can be scheduled or executed directly).


"Installed rogue anti-virus software without permission"

Pros: Easy to use and reliably synchronizes your data.

Cons: Program wanted me to update. I downloaded the update through the programs update link and it contained "offers" which I carefully read and declined. It still installed a rogue Anti-Malware program on my computer, it immediately appeared during the installation. Luckily I was able to immediately disable and delete the program but, it is a serious offense in my opinion to install unwanted software on someone's computer against their wishes.

Other Thoughts: I have been using the program for years, but, I am not going to use it anymore. There is a special place in Hell for people who load crappy toolbars and other crapware in their products.
