    Syncronizing program?

    Hey guys,
    Im not sure if a program of this sort exists but what better place to ask then TZ basically im looking for a program that will allow me to easily sync only certain folders from one hard drive to another on the same PC system.For example lets say i have a 250GB internal HDD and a 250GB external.Now i want to transfer my music folder from the internal to the external then be able to syncronize it as i add more music to the folder keeping it easily up to date as a backup.Any suggestions would be great and thanks as always.

    The best utility I've found so far is M$ SyncToy... very configurable, schedulable, monitorable... and any other ...ables i can think of.

    You won't be disappointed...

    else, you could try to use the media manager in WMP11, and use the External HD as an attached device to sync ala iTunes.

    Good luck.

    LOL, sorry for getting you in trouble BHX... my comment about double post was referring to the fact that I actually made a double post (same reply repeated), and edited one of them... (on side note Rev, I though VB stopped this?)

    On topic, Glad BHX, that MSSync Toy is good for you! It's very powerful

    Thanks cash,
    Yeah it is quite something alright.I love the backup all option it has makes it so much easier then doing it all manually.Funny thing it's made by MS lol they actually did something good

    and no problem there,i should have done a better search after all i notice a fair ammount of topics that seem to be in the wrong area lately.Just didnt think to look at the timek in the Windows help forums.

    Ever and always, but why would I waste them on you?
