Well,
I am now using SyncToy, the Microsoft's freeware, but I don't like it, if I need to sync big drives of like 3tb with lots of many files, it just hangs the PC...

So, I am looking for bullet proof software to make SYNC between drives.
Better if it's freeware, but if the price is right and features/operations are superb, I might consider buying some shareware.

So recommend me please.

free file sync did the job without any problems in 11 hours, SyncToy couldn't do that in 2 days, so it got uninstalled.

What was the total volume you were syncing?

I use SyncBackSE for my back-up duties. WHS 2011 -> Synology NAS -> external HDs
I've paid for my copy, though, so I don't use the free version.

Mind if I ask what the application purpose is? Is this for a periodic backup, or some other purpose? What is the link speed between the two systems, is it on a LAN, or across the Internet?

If it's just something you do periodically, and not as a live sync, you can use ROBOCOPY. It's included in Windows 7/8 and Windows 2008R2/2012. Live-sync is another beast entirely.
