FreeFileSync 5.12 Portable by Evan

FreeFileSync is an Open-Source folder comparison and synchronization tool. It is optimized for highest performance and usability without restricted or overloaded UI interfaces.


  • Compare files (bytewise or by date) and synchronize them.
  • No limitations: An arbitrary number of files can be synchronized.
  • Subfolders are also synchronized, including empty folders.
  • Network support.
  • Lean & easy accessible UI: Highly optimized for speed and huge sets of data.
  • Algorithms coded in C++ completely.
  • Focus on usability: Only necessary functionality on UI: no overloaded menus or icon jungle / Select folders via drag & drop / Last configuration and screen settings are saved automatically / Maintain and load different configurations by drag&drop, load-button or commandline / Double-click to show file in explorer / Copy & paste support to export file-lists / Delete superfluous/temporary files directly on main grid / Right-click context menu / Progress indicators, status information and error reporting / Sort file-lists by name, size or date / Display statistical data: total filesizes, amount of bytes that will be transfered with the current settings.
  • Easy configurable commandline mode for automated synchronization.
  • Support for filesizes > 4 GB.
  • Option to move files to Recycle Bin instead of deleting/overwriting them.
  • Automatically ignore directories "RECYCLER" and "System Volume Information" when comparing and syncing.
  • Localized German version available.
  • Delete before copy: Avoid disc space shortages with large sync-operations.
  • Based on wxWidgets framework => Portable to many operating systems.
  • Filter functionality to include/exclude files from synchronization (without re-compare!).
  • Include/exclude specific files from synchronization manually.
  • Create sync jobs via GUI to synchronize automatically (can be scheduled or executed directly).
  • What's new:
     Dynamic statistics adjustment during synchronization.
    Allow to save active view filter settings as default (context menu)
    Stay responsive while checking recycle bin existence on slow disks
    Reset option "Delete on both sides" upon each manual deletion
    Added context menu to allow deletion of last used configurations
    Support numpad add/subtract keys for overview tree
    Revised external application integration
    Call external applications for multiple selected items
    Automatically schedule abandoned recycle bin temp directories (.ffs_tmp) for deletion
    Binary comparison speed estimate considers errors and short-circuit evaluation
    Use full time window of sync phase when calculating overall speed
    Added Arabic language
