Sync folders on different drives

  wescliff 14:18 13 May 2017

Have folders on both my PC and a removable Seagate drive which contain about 300Gb of music. They should be identical but the removable has fallen behind. Is there a way it can sort of interrogate the folder on the PC and copy to itself what is missing. Grateful for any advice.

what are you using to copy the folder over?

I use free filesync (but watch for addons when installing it.

Up to now I just copy over the top and tell it to ignore duplicates. But takes ages. I'll have a look at free filesync thanks, and will watch out for the extras.

Tried it, but Norton blocked site. Got in at second attempt and downloaded, Norton promptly removed it.

Disconnect from internet, close Norton and try again.

Incidentally, I use a program called Directory Toolkit from a company called Funduc Software.
