Hi! Thank you for this excelent app!

Have 2 questions:

1. Is it possible to copy files which were created from specific time period in source? For example compare and copy source files which were created in period between 30 and 60 days ago?

2. Is it possible in sync batch to delete successfully synced files in source?

1. The answer "No" is not fully correct.
FFS allows to limit the files considered for sync to a date window. See here.
However, this is about dates and not about age, so it may not suit your needs.

2. As the name suggests, FFS is s sync-tool.
What you describe is not a sync, but a move, and is (as stated) not supported by FFS.

I believe that this feature does not make sense for FreeFileSync.
If you want to delete it afterwards, then just do it manually or write a script to delete it.
