Editors' Review

+

FreeFileSync provides a straightforward way to compare two files and then synchronize them through one of several methods to free up space.

Pros

Comparison options: In order to find similarities between files, you can choose from several comparison options. For instance, you can compare file time and size, or you can look at actual file content. And there are also several filters you can put in place to fine-tune your results further.

Clear process: To compare files through this software, all you have to do is select two files and click compare. All advanced options for filtering and other features are clearly displayed, should you want to use them. When your comparison is complete, you can quickly decide if you want to synchronize the files and what method you'd like to use for this.

Cons

Insufficient Help: The Help file is really just a list of features without much explanation or context. While the app is pretty straightforward, novice users would probably benefit from guidance.

Bottom Line

FreeFileSync is a good tool for helping you to consolidate and update your files. Its smooth interface and clear options let you add and compare files quickly, and although there isn't much in the way of Help, most users can carry out the basic software functions without it.

"Virus Detection"

July 09, 2015  |  By jaq2012

 |  Version: FreeFileSync 7.2

Pros

None. I can't run the install file. I give 5 stars for past versions of the software.

Cons

My anti-virus software will not allow this program to run. It finds a WS.SecurityRisk.3 and quarantines it. A google search shows this as a dangerous risk to your PC. CNET should correct this.
