CentOS does not supply FreeFileSync, and google did not turn up any RPMs.
See if rsync will do what you need.

Hmm...i tried compiling source code but ran into some errors
make
mkdir -p ../Obj/FFS_GCC_Make_Release/ffs/src/
g++ -pthread -std=c++11 -pipe -O3 -DNDEBUG -DWXINTL_NO_GETTEXT_MACRO -I../.. -I../../zenXml -include "zen/i18n.h" -include "zen/warn_static.h" -Wall -Winit-self -Wredundant-decls -Wmissing-include-dirs -Wswitch-enum -Wmain -DZEN_LINUX -Wcast-align -Wshadow `pkg-config --cflags gtk+-2.0` `pkg-config --cflags libselinux` -DHAVE_SELINUX -I/root/Desktop/boost `/root/Desktop/wxWidgets/lib/release/bin/wx-config --cxxflags --debug=no --static=yes` -c algorithm.cpp -o ../Obj/FFS_GCC_Make_Release/ffs/src/algorithm.o
/bin/sh: /root/Desktop/wxWidgets/lib/release/bin/wx-config: No such file or directory
cc1plus: error: unrecognized command line option "-std=c++11"
cc1plus: warning: ../../zenXml: No such file or directory
cc1plus: warning: /root/Desktop/boost: No such file or directory
make: *** [../Obj/FFS_GCC_Make_Release/ffs/src/algorithm.o] Error 1

I even tried to use alien to convert .deb into .rpm ; But i failed in that too
What else can i do?

We don't generally recommend compiling from source and the error you are seeing there says that the option is not recognised by the c++ compiler. That means that the version of gcc on CentOS 5 is not new enough to understand that. On el5 there is also a gcc44 set of packages and I checked on those too and that option is not understood by that either. That means you're pretty much out of luck compiling that app on CentOS 5 or 6.

Find a different application, sorry :-(
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!

CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.
