With fast operation and easy setup, FreeFileSync lets you sync files seamlessly.

Use FreeFileSync to sync content between different folders or drives and more, you'll be able to manage three different sync modes available.

Attention, however, it is important to make and backup all the important files that we use daily in the workplace and it is very important that the old files be replaced by the new ones, but in such a way that we can maintain a consistent folder structure, with the goal of avoiding creating a whole new backup every day.

FreeFileSync will allow you to choose which files to sync, how to make a custom filter, and two-way sync to copy or update new files and in addition, it can handle deleting files, sending them directly to the trash or folder specific.

To choose the folders or drives path - on the right side under the 'Compare' button, press browse - and for the second folder press the browse button under the 'Sync' button, moreover, the software accepts file synchronization from Google Drive or SFTP and FTP.

In conclusion, FreeFileSync is a free software that can analyze folder data, separate frequently used files and create backup copies of them. Keeping the contents of two folders in sync is to make sure that a backup of important files is available.
