Backup to Ext. HDD

  Gary Wood 18:21 07 Mar 2005

I want to backup my documents etc. to an external HDD. I need a program that can syncronise folders so that I can point it to the documents folder on my computer and have this automatically syncronised with the external drive.

I've managed to find programs that do this. However, they are limited in that if I delete a file in the source folder, it gets copied back when I syncronise (assuming I do two way sync) or else just gets left on the external drive and I have to remember to delete it from both locations.

Does anyone know if there are any sync programs available that would monitor activity on folders all the time and act accordingly when requested to sync (i.e. a program that would run in the sys tray, take note of the fact that I deleted "text.doc" from My Documents and then, when syncronising My Documents with the backup drive, delete it from the backup drive automatically?
