Default File syncing software?

Hi,

I tried googling but...

I have a USB drive with a backup from about a month ago of my audio and project data.

I remember reading about some preferably free syncing software that will look at what's different, then update the bu.

I looked at some, but they seem overly complicated. I just need one way. What do you guys use?

I used to use one on my Atari years ago that would compare two drives, then update the data. The mega:-)

Thanks in advance,

Guido

Oh yes...win xp

This!

If you need more bells and whistles, GoodSync is the way to go IMHO...

And as a bonus you can automate a setting you created via the task-planner so all is being backed-up in the background at a time you choose and it happend as often as you want: daily, weekly etc. Even hourly is possible whenever needed...
And all this for FREE!

Most of the complication with even the simpler programs is that you have to sit down with it for a little bit and set it up, which is unavoidable, sadly : ) But once you do then it's about the easiest thing to have going on your computer. So make a coffee and spend a half hour with it once and you'll be done. Some of the best features take a few more minutes to set up but don't let that dissuade you. Having a good file syncing routine is a great thing.
