    What is a good freeware file sync program for USB drives?

    I believe the title says it all.

    Why don't you just use Dropbox or similar?

    I have 1GB + datafiles that I transfer so it would be too slow to use dropbox.

    Initial transfer would be slow but incremental should be as speedy as your internet connection.
    Just a thought.

    I use it to sync my NAS device to my backup device. Been using it for a while now.

    There is also an alternative as well. http://synkron.sourceforge.net/ A few options that Freefilesync doesn't have. But FFS has some things that Synkron doesn't have that I use.
