I find myself needing to sync one or two directories out of a long list of directories from time to time. Being able to check/uncheck, or right-click and sync would be very helpful.

Many thanks.

In the GUI, just right-click on those files and/or folders, and include (or exclude) those.
If you want that to be permanent, save the sync, if not, do not save the sync.

You can "Select multiple configurations at a time", including only those folders that you need right now: https://freefilesync.org/manual.php?topic=tips-and-tricks#select-multiple-configurations

As an alternative, I've added the ability to synchronize only the selected rows:
