Freeware application that enables you to sync or compare two folders
FreeFileSync review by Team on 09.12.2014
FreeFileSync is an OpenSource folder comparison and synchronization tool. It can watch the original file and upon saving changes, apply the changes to copies saved elsewhere. It takes just a couple of seconds to have FreeFileSync up and running and you can choose whether to install it the traditional way or as a portable application. If you choose to use it as portable application, you can store FreeFileSync on a USB flash drive or some other removable apparatus, save it to any computer and directly run its executable file. Therefore, you can always carry FreeFileSync with you when you are on the more. What is more important is that the Windows Registry is not updated with new entries, and no leftover files can be found on the hard drive after application removal. FreeFileSync lets you pick one of two modes for the comparison procedure, by file time and size, or by file content. When you click the Compare option, in the top left corner of the interface, FreeFileSync will show the contents of the selected folders right away. Compared files are aligned automatically, so you can spot any differences much quicker. If an item exists in a single folder, its corresponding entry will be blank. The program shows a series of icons between the files to let you know which files are identical or not. Additionally , you can choose a variant for the synchronization mode, between 'two way' and 'mirror'. Plus, you can make FreeFileSync dismiss all errors dialogs which pop up, send files to the Recycle Bin or permanently remove them from the system when deleting items, configure filters, as well as save the configuration settings for future projects; the file list can be exported to file. Filters help users control which files are overwritten, ensuring that nothing important is lost. Everything about FreeFileSync is simple to use, but the software still includes a comprehensive Help file which contains plenty of information about its moreadvanced features. For anyone who wants to synchronize folders and files, FreeFileSync is a great choice.

Download and install FreeFileSync safely and without concerns.
