Any pay-for replacement for FreeFileSync?
Regarding the subject of copying, does anyone here know of a utility, preferably pay-for, that can replace FreeFileSync -- in its EZ-to-use, without any added PUP?
Free is just not cutting it. I need something that is not a "bus" where a "VW" [such as FreeFileSync] will do perfectly.

Not sure what it is exactly you're looking for other than a pay for option. But take a look at this comparison matrix and see if it helps you narrow down the number of candidates to look at closer:

Hi AnimalKat!   I've been using FreeFileSync for some time now, I really like the way it is EZ-to-use, however, the install always tries to sneak in a PUP [or a kitten if it could].  There must a serious EZ-to-use folder/file sync utility out there.  I'll check out the web site you gave me, thanks!
