Microsoft syncToy

Post by siby » Mon Jun 25, 2007 5:12 pm

If you have an external hard drive or other back up devices, you can try synctoy software free from microsoft download site. It backs up the entire folder you specify into the external drive. When u repeat it next time, only the changed/added files are backed up, so it is quick. If you store all your documents and information in "My Documents" folder, this is the right tool for you and do back up once every few days. It won't take even a minute unless u have created any large file since last back up. You can even use another partition of your existing hard drive for back up

Just the tool I have been looking for a while, especially with me having an awful habit of misplacing flash drives.

For some reason I could not find the download. But I found something else similar, free. Working well.

That seems to be interesting, especially being a free software.

Yes Siby. Goodsync is quite impressive - 2 way sync, automatic analysis and sync on connecting external device, multiple device setup etc. Maybe MS synctoy is better, I dodnt know. But I cant fault this one.
