    Dear Tecmint > Mr. Ravi Saive:

    1. Your discussion on FreeFileSync is very informative. Thank you very much.

    2. I have a question for you: How do you synchronize a local folder with a remote folder via the Internet? How do you specify the address of the remote folder?

    3. Your response to the above will be much appreciated.

    Version 10 seems to have dropped the installation ads. They used to use OpenCandy, which is a bit of nasty program. For older versions, making sure you have no Internet connection during install will prevent OpenCandy from doing its stuff.

    Symbolic links disable seems to work only on local drives. When it finds any on FTP it follows it and this way it may loop deeply. (Checked on Ubuntu 16.04).

    There should be an option not to follow symlinks also on FTP directories.

    I installed the freefilesync program on ubuntu 16.04. Mirroring files on the external hard drive is no problem. However, the permission changes on the destination folder, which is the external hard drive. How can I preserve the permissions as it is when I mirroring files on ubuntu 16.04???

    The free edition of Windows version is ad-supported and as such your anti-virus software may report Win32/FusionCore. I or similar, which means you will be dealing with a PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program).
