Is there an option to change auto-update for manual checking? I hate when I can't control my software.

That option seems to be missing from the current version. I feel like I remember the option being there previously

Are there any plans to reintegrate this option?

Looks like the only current option is to block it in your firewall

Well it is not a good option to me. To clear my point of view I am a donating user. I am just like when software (developer) respect my need. As well as developer awaiting from users the same way.

I support the statement by "hqqddy". I am also a paying user and do not want to see these messages! Please give us the option to deactivate them again.

I second this.
I need an app without any unattended network connection.

I have noticed FreeFileSync automatically attempting to check for updates in the menubar and via an annoying popup. I wish I could disable all update checks, as they are annoying and unsightly. When I want to update, I check back here on the website periodically, but no features I use have been added in ages, and the flat comparison view I used was removed a few versions ago.

* FreeFileSync <version unknown> * and ERROR_INTERNET_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED are not very pretty or useful. I know the version I'm using is outdated, I know I firewalled it to block internet access, please do not remind me.
