    FreeFileSync is an Open-Source folder comparison and synchronization tool. It is optimized for highest performance and usability without restricted or overloaded UI interfaces. FreeFileSync enables you to synchronize files between two folders or drives. You can either mirror two folders to create an exact copy of the source folder, or perform a two-way synchronization that will copy new or updated files in both directions. FreeFileSync has Unicode support and Network support. Synchronization database for propagation of deleted files and conflict detection. Support for multiple folder pairs with distinct configuration. Full support for Windows Symbolic Links and Windows Junction Points. The program also supports an Update mode which will only copy files that are new or have been changed. You can also choose how to handle file deletions by either sending them to the recycle bin or moving them to another folder.

    Key Features:
    • Detection of moved and renamed files
    • Copy locked files using Windows Volume Shadow Copy Service. (Windows only)
    • Support for multiple folder pairs with distinct configuration
    • Compare files (bytewise or by date) and synchronize them.
    • Create Batch Jobs for automated synchronization with or without GUI.
    • Optimized performance, coded in C++ completely.
    • Native 32 and 64 bit builds
    • Transactional file copy
    • Synchronization database for propagation of deleted files and conflict detection
    • Cross-Platform
    • Full support for Windows/Linux Symbolic Links and Windows Junction Points.
    • Full unicode support.
    • Full network support.
    • Built-in support for very long filenames (more than MAX_PATH = 260 characters).
    • Copy NTFS alternate data streams, compressed and encrypted file attributes
    • Lean & easily accessible UI: only useful functionality, no feature bloat.
    • 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)
    • Delete before copy: Avoid disc space shortages for large sync-jobs.
    • Filter functionality to include/exclude files from synchronization.
    • Automatically handle daylight saving time changes on FAT/FAT32 volumes.
    • Portable version available (selectable via installer).
    • Opt-in for automatic online update.
    • Localized versions are available for many languages.
    • Create recurring backups with macros %time%, %date% within directory names
    • Copy file create/modification times when synchronizing.
    • Advanced locking strategy to allow multiple synchronization processes (e.g. multiple writers, same network share).
    • Case-sensitive synchronization of file, directory and symlink names

    - Dynamic statistics adjustment during synchronization
    - Allow to save active view filter settings as default (context menu)

    - Added context menu to allow deletion of last used configurations
    - Support numpad add/subtract keys for overview tree
    - Revised external application integration
    - Call external applications for multiple selected items
    - Automatically schedule abandoned recycle bin temp directories (.ffs_tmp) for deletion
    - Binary comparison speed estimate considers errors and short-circuit evaluation
    - Use full time window of sync phase when calculating overall speed
    - Added Arabic language
