      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).

      In a quick test, I can tell it behaves almost identically to GoodSync. Seems to be a good program.

      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.

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

      T_N_T rsync is great, but for me the biggest flaw is not having two-way synchronization.
