FreeFileSync is a tool that helps users synchronize files and folders while running backup tasks, saving time and providing high-quality work. An additional observation is a safety offered in every process that guarantees no bugs will interfere during any activity.

Firstly, one of the most important aspects of working with this software is that it offers guidance in a very accessible format. Specific buttons support each step.

You have the Compare function to compare two folders, which tells you the exact differences between their content, size, or date.

Secondly, synchronization can be done automatically or manually, depending on your preferences. You can update both folders, move them to one another, and create a mirror backup. Overwritten files can easily be controlled, avoiding any case of information loss.
