Love this utility,
I'm using FreeFileSync to sync LW directory on portable HD between work and home
saved me tedious minutes checking and transferring files across.

Here is the link

The installer will ask to install a browser plugin but just click 'decline'

Interesting, thanks for the info.
I'm using BeyondCompare since years, it's not free but only $30 for standard or $50 for the pro version. It's perfect to compare / sync files and directories but also to compare files content (for example lws files, images, source code etc.). It also has ftp and dropbox support. Single button filters show you for example differences, orphans and you can define more complex filtering criterias. It's very fast in scanning whole drives and once scanned it does a quick refresh with F5.

Yep, I use BeyondCompare (4) here too on Mac and Win, and highly recommend it.
