FreeFileSync – free and open source data backup software that helps you synchronize files and folders


You can compare folders:

  • Compare by File time and size. This variant considers two files equal when both modification time and file size match;
  • Compare by File content. Two files are marked as equal if they have identical content;
  • Compare by File size. Two files are considered equal if they have the same file size;
  • Symbolic Link Handling. FreeFileSync lets you choose to include symbolic links (also called symlinks or soft links) when scanning directories rather than skipping over them.

  • FreeFileSync supports additional synchronization scenarios via a command line interface;
  • It is possible to include or exclude elements using filters;
  • You can create configuration profiles with the specified settings;
  • Performance settings FreeFileSync can be set up to issue multiple file accesses in parallel;
  • Various types of synchronization settings are available: two way synchronization (identify and propagate changes on both sides. Deletions, moves and conflict are detected automatically using a database), mirror (create a mirror backup of the left folder by adapting the right folder to match), update (copy new and updated files to the right folder), custom (configure your own synchronization rules);
  • Support for batch job scheduling;
  • FreeFileSync supports synchronization with Google Drive, SFTP and FTP;
  • RealTimeSync option available;
  • Keyboard shortcut support.
