FreeFileSync is a free and open-source program used for file synchronization. It is available on Windows, Linux and OS X. The project is backed by donations. Donors get a few additional features such as an auto-updater, parallel sync, portable version, and silent installation.[2] It has received positive reviews.[3][4]

FreeFileSync works by comparing one or multiple folders on their content, date or file size and subsequently synchronizing the content according to user-defined settings. In addition to supporting local file systems and network shares, FreeFileSync is able to sync to FTP, FTPS, SFTP and MTP devices.


Earlier versions were packaged with OpenCandy,[5][6] an adware module which many antivirus software vendors classify as malware.[7][8][9][10]

Since the release of version 10.0 in April 2018, the software is ad-free.[11] In November 2018 Norton wrongly considered FreeFileSync installer as a malware and blocked its installation.[12]

FreeFileSync is available for 32bit and 64bit operating systems.As of May 2020 the then current version 10.23 of FreeFileSync supported the following operating systems and versions:[13]
