FreeFileSync – Release 10.2 highlights and review.

FreeFileSync is a free data backup and file synchronization app which is available in Linux systems enables you to seamlessly sync your backup data with the source data.

When you take a backup of your HD, or any other disk drive, you should keep it in sync for the file changes you do from time to time. It is often difficult to remember which file/directories you have changed/deleted/updated since the last backup. FreeFileSync solves that problem and it can determine and sync only those changed/deleted/updated files in your backup.

Recently FreeFileSync releases version 10.2 with various bug fixes and improvements. As per the official change log here are the changes for this release.

  • Limit number of file versions by age and count
  • Report not yet existing folders as warning instead of error
  • Improved comparison speed for high-latency traversals
