FreeFileSync is an Open-Source folder comparison and synchronization tool.

freefilesync_logoFreeFileSync is a folder comparison and synchronization tool providing highly optimized performance and usability without needless user interface complexity.

Sometimes we need to synchronize files and folders between different drives on our systems or specially with a portable device. 

Synchronizing helps us to have the same set of data in the source and destination folder, changing the contents of one i.e adding or deleting files are also updated in the other folder.

Features:
  • Detect moved and renamed files

  • Copy locked files (Volume Shadow Copy Service)

  • Detect conflicts and propagate deletions

  • Binary comparison

  • Full support for Symbolic Links

  • Run as a batch job

  • Multiple folder pairs

  • Support very long path names > 260 characters

  • Transactional file copy

  • Cross-platform: Windows/Linux

  • Expand environment variables like %USERPROFILE%

  • Access variable drive letters by volume name (USB sticks)

  • Native 32 and 64-bit builds

  • Versioning of deleted files

  • Optimal sync sequence prevents disc space shortages

  • Full unicode support

  • Highly optimized performance

  • Include/exclude files via filter

  • Local or portable installation

  • Handle daylight saving time changes on FAT/FAT32

  • Use macros %time%, %date%, et al. for recurring backups

  • Case sensitive synchronization

  • Built-in locking allows for multiple jobs on the same network share
