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.

  • Unicode support.
  • Network support.
  • Synchronization database for propagation of deleted files and conflict
  • Support for multiple folder pairs with distinct configuration
