Where can I find a free file transfer/copier/sync program?

And I don't want no free trial crud or trial-play(play or play? i forget).

Update:

also, I really don't want a FTP program, they don't work, im trying to transfer files from my laptop to the external HDD on my other PC on my home network.

    File Transfer and copying is one thing. File synchronization is another.

    Is it file synchronization you need? Here are some File synchronization applications:

    http://allwaysync.com/index.html

    http://www.cis.upenn.edu/~bcpierce/unison/

    http://jfilesync.sourceforge.net/

    http://sourceforge.net/projects/freefilesync/

    Microsoft has sync toy: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?Fa...

    Gbridged has a synch optoin. It is also a remote desktop application using VNC. It has Gtalk built in for chat. It is possibly more than you need:

    If it just copy you need copying through the file system works. But, in cause of some error, using Windows Explorer to copy files can be troublesome. A better file manager with options to sync folders, options to retry if a copy fails, compare folders and options to only replace newer files can be a boon.

    Free Commander is one: http://www.freecommander.com/

    If it is a remote location, then FTP shouldn't be giving you such a hassle. It requires the remote location have a running FTP server. Also, the client you use should have the ability to track failed transfers and resume them.

    Filezilla is a good one: http://filezilla-project.org/

    Ftp can also be used to sync over a secure connection. Here is one program that does this: http://sourceforge.net/projects/winscp/

    If you need to sync things such as contacts, email and calender it would depend greatly on PIM, contact manager, or email you use. Yahoo has a ysnch program that can help. Gmail also has some tools that can help.
