    Synchronizing folders

    I have two similar folders on two separate drives, originally one folder copied to another but since I had add more files to one and not the other. Is there a way to synchronize these folders (or if that's not the right term, to make sure at the end that both folders have the same files)?

    I'm assuming your coping from your PC's HDD to a External HDD? If so Did you make a briefcase on your External HDD?

    well it's not exactly the whole PC HDD to the External HDD. Just a few of the folders of files. And no I did not make a briefcase for the external, can you tell me how to do it??

    Microsoft Sync toy is what you want, I used to use it to keep my Documents on my External Hard drive that I brought to Collage syncd with my computer at home.

    Its really easy to use, just set up two folders and hit a button and it does the rest.

    Download details: SyncToy v1.4

    Thanks for the recommendation, I'll give it a try first.

    By the way this isn't a cloning program right, where it just copies and pastes all the files??

    It takes one folder and copyies it to another place. When you run it again, and a change has been made in either folder, it mirrors the change in both folders.
