Best File Synchronization Program Bar None

5,0 vor 6 Jahren

Kommentare: For those who do not know what FreeFileSync can do for you, let me sum it up for you: it's a program that allows the user to manages folder synchronization jobs. RAID configurations and cloud storage solutions have their place, but they cannot solve many of the problems that this program can. - How do you make external hard drive backups efficiently? The external hard drive naturally exists outside of a RAID configuration and a cloud storage sync folder and it could be very difficult and time-consuming to do the backup manually.
FreeFileSync can solve this problem
- Suppose that you regularly receive a data dump via an FTP. How do you efficiently determine which files are new compared to the last data dump that you kept? You could manually compare file times between your files and the files of the new data dump, but you can lose a lot of time doing so.
FreeFileSync can solve this problem
- How do you synchronize folders of two or more cloud storage solutions in real time? I don't know of any cloud storage giving you that option and a RAID configuration is possible, I suppose, if you give each cloud storage a partition (i.e. Partition_1 for OneDrive and Partition_2 for Dropbox). The problem with the RAID configuration is that it would make your computer environment a little complicated and you won't have the option of synchronizing select folders. I use FreeFileSync to solve all the problems mentioned above. I've had a great experience with this program so far.

Vorteile:

- Open Source so it's open for independent audits - Regularly updated and incredibly well-developed - You have many options in terms of which comparison method you want to use to compare the files and which type of synchronization you prefer (mirroring, duplicate, update-only) - You can see when it was the last time you ran a particular sync job and you can customize the location of where the synchronization log files are kept at (can be useful for record keeping and audits) - You can choose to sync folders in real time and choose to have the real time sync program run at startup - It's never failed to deliver

Nachteile:

- Maybe if it had an option of encrypting on backup, I guess that would be cool - I did look to see if there was an option of verifying successful synchronization with checksums like SHA-256, but after reading their article on the CopyFile function, I saw that it was nearly pointless to do so. Instead, I put my trust in the program and I make sure that my computer hardware is running smoothly (i.e. no bad hard drive sectors) and that there is no malware present.

FreeFileSync one of the best synching tools.

5,0 vor 2 Jahren

Vorteile:

It was easy to use from the moment i began to use it. I use it everyday with no difficulty. The copying direction can be changed with ease simply with right click on an individual file or a group of files.

Nachteile:

I cannot find any con. The only issue I have: Donation is refused with PayPal and Credit Card from South Korea with this message: "Donations to this recipient aren't supported in this country". I am still using the 2021 Donation Edition.

only syncing tool you need

3,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: perfect for when you need to move files over or back it up to another location

Vorteile:

i can schedule sync jobs how often i want and get data where i need it go go. really helpful when moving to another server and migrating the files over. this can definitely be done using a command prompt but I'm more of an interface kind of guy.

Nachteile:

would be nice if there was a notification system where it could send an email if a job failed, apart from that it runs great

The most important is I use FreeFileSync for ALL of my Media, Pics, backups for 5 people. It has so far been very reliable. It does what it says in its name, FreeFileSync!!!

Vorteile:

Ease of use. Easy learning curve. Very adjustable parametrs.

Nachteile:

So far for my use there has been none. I am sure if I were an experienced IT guy maybe could comment. But for me its Great!

Start for free! Donate for the time that you save! Best of the bunch for Synchronization!

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: FreeFileSync has helped save our data multiple times in the past. Setting up and scheduling sync between multiple locations both on site, off-site and to the cloud has never been easier - or this reliable. We've tried multiple vendors in the past. While backup was always easy, restoration used to be time consuming. FreeFileSync solves that issue while providing multiple options for syncing files, both non-destructively and securely.

Vorteile:

While all other sync programs have helped a lot, variable drive letters is what has made the biggest difference for us. Since the team uses only cameras from the same brand, all we need to do it pop in the memory card, and voila, all the pictures are copied without us lifting a finger. RealTImeSync + Variable Drive letter support is where it's at. Light years ahead while still being simple.

Nachteile:

Someone using it for the first time would find it a little confusing. Though things are straightforward, there are a plethora of options that can be used. Too many options sometimes can get very confusing, even though a detailed manual is available.

I love free software, and this is one of the better ones!

5,0 vor 6 Jahren

Kommentare: It is an absolutely vital part of my backup strategy on a daily & weekly basis.

Vorteile:

FreeFileSync is a great app for performing file comparisons & backups. I use it daily to compare all of the company's ever-changing file additions & edits, then mirror them to a mobile backup drive that I move offsite weekly. It is very fast when performing the initial comparison of changed & new files and will display the before presenting the option of synching or mirroring to the new location. It also has a feature to do a constant sync/mirroring but I have yet to utilize that feature.

Nachteile:

I have no cons to speak of. It's funny, but because it's open source and free I think it has a bit of a malware reputation but I have never seen any kind of issue with this at all.

If you need to regularly back up your files, you need to try this

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: I use FreeFileSync to back up my files from my desktop computer to a removable drive, to protect against failure of my desktop computer. I have scheduled it to automatically back up every 4 hours, and it has always worked quickly and reliably, and hasn't bloated my computer with junk files.

Vorteile:

I love that FreeFileSync is free to download and use. There is a donation system if you find it useful, which I have donated to.

Nachteile:

I would say that it doesn't have access to cloud storage, but recent versions have added this feature. Great!

5,0 vor 6 Jahren

Vorteile:

It is very easy to manage I only need to plug my tablet or smartphone on the computer, start the app and in few minutes my files can be updated and I can continue my work with my ready for another actualization, just like that.

I will not recommend this app for people who works with heavy files, because it can be very difficult to update the files because it takes so much time to do the job.

FreeFileSync makes syncing data simple

5,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: FreeFileSync quickly and reliably copies data between locations that I use regularly and is the perfect complement to a fully featured backup solution (for example, Acronis).

Vorteile:

FreeFileSync is an easy, free way to keep your data up-to-date in multiple locations. You only need to specify the target and source directories, and the sync option that you require (such as mirroring or two-way sync). I use FreeFileSync in a couple of ways. First, it archives the majority of a network attached storage device to a large disk installed in a PC once per week. An exception to this is that on the NAS and PC there are some business folders which require a two way sync. This two way sync is helpful as I can add business data to my PC or the NAS directly and know that once FreeFileSync is run the data on both devices will be the same. To help with the two way requirement and prevent conflicts I have used the create batch functionality in FreeFileSync, and use external triggers like Windows Tasks to run this batch automatically at regular intervals. The ease in creating a batch file and the ability to easily edit it in FreeFileSync if target or source destinations change saves a lot of time compared to trying to create an adhoc solution such as using Windows command line/batch files.

Nachteile:

A minor inconvenience, but sometimes when files are synced it does so successfully, but still displays a warning symbol by the job. If you run the job again no further files are changed, and this symbol changes to a green tick.

Superb value-for-money file synchronization software for small businesses!

4,0 vor 7 Jahren

Kommentare: It automates a lot of mundane effort to keep a perfect backup of my important files. Without it, I would have to open up a file manager with dual windows, and manually inspect files on both sides to determine which files to backup/delete in order to keep a mirror image. FreeFileSync helps me to perform this task in seconds! Now, I am able to keep a mirror image of my important files inside an external hard drive which I keep with me at all times. In the event of an emergency which incapitates my main computer system, I would be able to continue my business using another computer with literally no downtime because I have a perfectly sync mirror image of all my important files.

Vorteile:

We all know it is important to keep multiple backups of our computer systems but for many small businesses, the owner may not know how due to lack of knowledge and/or cost consideration. Ever since I discovered about this software, I am full of praises for it. Being free (donations welcomed), you cannot complain about the price. It supports Windows, Mac and Linux systems so another big plus there for any business. What I like most about it is that it has advanced features which will meet most if not all of the needs of even the most demanding user. You can set it to sync files meeting certain criteria (e.g. only those with .DOC extensions); you can then specify whether to do a mirror sync (one-way) or a full-time sync (two-way); you can set it to perform the task at a preset time or in real-time (though I haven't tried this yet). Now, you really have no excuse not to make a backup of your system!

Nachteile:

Being open-source software, there is no dedicated telephone support. And for the novice, setting it up right at the beginning can be intimidating. But trust me, once set up, file sync becomes a breeze and no-brainer. Other than this, I really have no complaints about the software. It is also regularly updated approximately once a month.

Usando FreeFileSync a diario

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: Mi experiencia es muy buena. Uso este software hace años y se actualiza muy a menudo, así que de alguna manera soy testigo de su evolución, y ésta ha sido siempre para mejor.

Vorteile:

Es muy sencillo de instalar y de usar. Funciona prácticamente en cualquier pc y utiliza muy pocos recursos. Está traducido a muchos idiomas. Es un software gratuito que no muestra publicidad ni mensajes invasivos. Tiene diferentes opciones de sincronización, con muchos ajustes de configuración. Funciona muy bien a través de la red y distintos almacenamiento en la nube. Yo lo utilizo para mantener sincronizadas dos computadoras (una pc y una notebook) y lo hace perfectamente. Ofrece una Donation Edition para colaborar voluntariamente con los desarrolladores con la cantidad de dinero que uno elija. La diferencia entre la versión free y la donation es muy poca (actualización automática) y se puede usar perfectamente cualquiera de ellas sin ninguna limitación.

Nachteile:

En realidad no le encuentro ninguna desventaja. Con versiones anteriores a veces me ocurría que se interrumpía la transferencia de datos por la red, con archivos relativamente grandes, pero se solucionó en versiones posteriores. Como detalle a mejorar, es un poco incómodo cambiar la ubicación de las ventanas, arrastrándolas. Tienden a reacomodarse muy rápido y a veces no se logra lo que uno deseaba. Para minimizzar este efecto tiene una opción "Restablecer diseño" que devuelve las ventanas a su posición original.

I depend on this software daily!

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: This software runs on a scheduled task probably 20 times per day, backing up network drives to other storage, and multiple forms of cloud storage. With the exception of an occasional file name error when going from Mac to Windows file shares, the program works flawlessly. I use the donation version which allows more simultaneous threads for speedier transfers and it works really, really well. For the price, it can't be beaten! And the free version is just as powerful, albeit a bit slower.

Vorteile:

I'm really up tight about file retention and backups. I run a combination of backup schemes to multiple destinations. Box.com, Google Drive, and local hard drives. FreeFileSync seamlessly allows me to move updated files through scheduled tasks without thinking twice. It's great.

Nachteile:

The interface is intuitive, but rather amateurish looking. Aesthetics aside, the program does exactly what it's supposed to do. I can't complain about its functionality - only its amateur UI.

FreeFileSync - It syncs your documents and it is free.

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: FreeFileSync does what it claims to do and so far I have been able to sync my documents without any problem. I also like it that the software is open-source.

Vorteile:

Pros: It does two-way synchronization. It is free and is relatively easy to use. I used Microsoft's SyncToy for a few years until Microsoft stopped supporting it, so I searched around and found FreeFilesync. FreeFileSync does what it claims to do and so far I have been able to sync my documents without any problem. I also like it that the software is open-source. Neutral: The free version of course comes with limitations. For instance, it does not have the "parallel file copy" option." I assume one can do this manually anyways. * The "donation version" has more belts and whistles. The software will regularly remind you to auto-update or download the donation version. The good news is that you can decide the donation amount. If you feel like you want to support this open-source software, you can decide how much you are willing to spare as compared to paying a fixed price.

Nachteile:

Cons: The interface looks a bit antiquated. You can use the "Browse" tab to select the two folders which you want to sync; the file paths will then show up in the tiny windows. I personally would like to see the complete paths displayed fully so that I can ensure that I have selected the right folders to sync. Overall assessment: Worth trying.

FreeFileSync - Backup on Steroids

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: FreeFileSync provides me with a simple and effective backup solution that also works in part as a defense against Ransomware when off-site disks are used for backup.

Vorteile:

The ease-of-use of FreeFileSync is remarkable. There are essentially four operational modes, and once you understand the GUI, learning all four takes about thirty seconds.

Nachteile:

This is one of the few products that I really do not have anything negative to comment upon, except for the rare software crash (and I mean VERY rare - it happens maybe once every six months).

This makes perfect and easy backups; to Dropbox, in my case. Doing it automatically is tricky.

5,0 vor 6 Jahren

Kommentare: Safe, easy backups.

Vorteile:

It is extremely easy to set up for manual use. (As in "back up now.") It only copies changed files, which is the secret of the fast backups. You ban back up as large a set of files as you wish. If your office burns to the ground, you still have your data safely tucked away.

Nachteile:

The learning curve in general is not bad. Setting up backups as a "task" is more difficult, although there are helps online, here and there. I back up once a day, but, it could be every hour.

No competition, and open source!

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Vorteile:

There is not a lot of competition. We have started using FreeFileSync in our company some years ago (syncing large amounts of data to our server). We use it daily and it is a workhorse. Great for backing up and cloning projects.

Nachteile:

The UI isn't amazing. If there are a lot of files, it is hard to keep track of what is being synced and mistakes can happen.

A bit more of your basic syncing needs

4,0 vor 5 Jahren

Vorteile:

I like the way the product maintaining synchronization silently, once providing the proper privileges it can go independently while keeping the changes in files and directory updated using minimal CPU and RAM resources.

Nachteile:

I leased liked the fact the program gets the red flags from my anti-virus, changing the anti-virus program not necessary will fix the issue.

The only solution you will need to keep your files in Sync

4,0 vor 6 Jahren

Kommentare: It enables me to automate part of my workflow. Now, I no longer have to keep track of when and what files have been synced to the server.
The single click, takes care of it all for me.

Vorteile:

It allows drag-and-drop interface to facilitate the sync folders along with options to "mirror", "copy" or simply "add the changes". It also allows multiple sync modules to be run at the same time. So all it takes is one time set up and any number of folders can be set up to sync in very specific way. Its ability to integrate into any given batch script is in short, amazing! After the initial set up it allows you to simply copy the batch script, which can be added to any other batch file or even the windows task scheduler to automate the process even further!

Nachteile:

Its in-built memory feature only remembers the latest set of sync files. So if you want to run any sync module that was created before that, you will need to navigate to the saved file location or the batch script.

Free, and can synchronize to your Google Drive account

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: I have used FreeFileSync for many years. Before that, I used Robocopy, which was a command line utility. It worked fairly well, but had problems with file permissions. I then started using FreeFileSync, which has a graphical interface, and some friendly options such as mirror and updating. I find it indispensable. I also like how it has cloud features in the form of Google Drive backup.

Vorteile:

I love that FreeFileSync can use my Google Drive storage now, and as I have unlimited space, I have a free solution to back up my files without needing an external hard drive.

Nachteile:

Google Drive backup is a little slow, but I believe this is the fault of Google, rather than FreeFileSync, as they provide a very slow API.

Una ottima utility per sincronizzare cartelle e/o dischi

5,0 letztes Jahr

Vorteile:

E' un programma gratuito ma molto funzionale. Offre differenti opzioni di comparazione e successiva sincronizzazione tra cartella o addirittura interi dischi.

Nachteile:

L'interfaccia è forse un pò troppo semplice e qualche volta il programma sembra non rispondere immediatamente, piccole imperfezioni non realmente importanti.

FreeFileSync - Awesome File Backup and Synchronization Software

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: FreeFileSync offers solid file synchronizations, that can be done ad hoc or set up as Windows tasks, all in a nice graphical user interface.

Vorteile:

FreeFileSync has a great graphical interface that makes it easy to set up new folder/file synchronizations. Besides ad hoc synchronizations initiated by the user, you can also save your synch settings and set them up as tasks in the Windows task scheduler, so the jobs can run unattended at predetermined intervals. You can of course use filters to include or exclude files from the process.

Nachteile:

It is hard to find Cons for this software. Sometimes the synch process can take longer than initially estimated but that is normal for this type of process.

FreeFileSync

4,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: I don't have any complaints. The software works well with just a little effort on the user's part in identifying the source and destination files.

Vorteile:

Reliable and easy to use with options to include/exclude. Quickly compares and syncs folders/files with little effort on the user's part. Best part is it's free!

Nachteile:

The software seems to get a little "confused" when syncing folders across a network on different servers. Still, a small thing to deal with in a free program.
