      Syncthing vs GoodSync opinions
      Most users think Syncthing is a great alternative to GoodSync.
      T_N_T Although Syncthing is a great file synchronizer, do not completely replace Goodsync, as it does not sync files on the same computer and has no option to move files (delete at source).

      JohnnyAlzheimer FreeFileSync is a disaster, it took 24hs to copy over all the files, GoodSync does it in 3hs (clean backup to empty local folder). And what's worrisome: it always finds some new 2-3 GB every time i compare the folders even though i didn't make any changes on the remote directory.

      pros, cons and recent comments
      It only allows backup local files to FTP, I needed the other way around i.e. backup FTP files on local directory.

      rsync vs GoodSync opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      T_N_T rsync is great, but for me the biggest flaw is not having two-way synchronization.
