synchronize files between two folders FreeFileSync enables you to synchronize files between two folders or drives. You can either mirror two folders to create an exact copy of the source folder, or perform a two-way synchronization that will copy new or updated files in both directions. The program also offers an "Update Mode" which will only copy files that are new or have been changed. You can choose how to handle file deletions by either sending them to the recycle bin or moving them to another folder. Other features include custom file filters, an option to ignore daylight savings time, and more. Copyright

FYI: This program offers to install promotional or third party software. Installation of these components is optional but you should pay attention during setup to avoid installing unwanted software. Read our policy.

Usable and very fast 5 stars by sergei.gnezdov770 Nov 17, 2017 (Read all my 3 reviews)
I have a Photo library collection with 47 GB and 84 GB. Smaller one was created with older Mac Photo app and bigger with newer. I run compare by file size and date time with this tool and it was very fast. In comparison, I used several other tools and all tools a much longer time (more like go make some tea, take out trash, talk to wife, etc.). The presentation of differences is superb. In my case I wanted to figure out how different directories are and not quite to synchronize. "Space" temporary hides directories. All in all the usability was top notch. show Review details

One major option still missing... 2 stars by Shodan816 Oct 02, 2012 (Read all my 43 reviews)
This would and should be one of the best folder synchronization utilities available with one exception: There is no way to set a 'default' set of folders for the application to open up to. Instead, it opens to whatever two folders were last used. It stands to reason that a Sync Utility would either allow the user to choose the default folders, or at the very least open to the top level of folders on the two drives - e.g., C: and D:. In past versions at least the user could set the GlobalSettings,xml file to Read Only to get around this issue, but that is no longer possible. show Review details
