You could go "commando" with a few lines of commands.
http://blinksync.sourceforge.net/ and others are widely available and free.
About 5 years ago, a backup application that I was using (forgot the name) got me in real trouble when it was backing up the stuff in format that no other application could recognize. Hence, I could not recover that data.
Since then I use free version of Syncback to backup my stuff on 2 external HDDs, which is working pretty nicely. Only complaint is, I have to do this backup twice for 2 HDDs. It will be great if I could backup in single attempt. Any application suggestion for that?
There are tons of other backup applications that perform what is called as incremental backup. I wonder if the data in these backups is as easily accessible as you access files through windows explorer. I do not want to burn my fingers as I did 5 years ago. Is there any advantage of using this system over my current set up?
Many thanks in advance.
