Real time back up

  Liteman 11:31 22 Feb 2011

Does anyone have experience of Allway Sync or MirrorFolder? I need to backup a file/folder as it is being worked on over the course of a day?
Using XP SP3, need to backup from one USB HDD toa second USB HDD.

I have used Allway sync in the past and found it fairly useful.The free version would be adequate for your needs if the back files do not exceed 30,000 a month,if I remember correctly.
I now use GoodSync Pro which I found really easy to use and set here

Also consider Microsoft's own SyncToy click here. G

I also use GoodSync Pro and as per gengiscant found it easy to setup and use. Although I regularly clone my drive I use GoodSync for some backup jobs. Can recommend it.

I have been using AllwaySync for the past year backing up my data from PC1 to an external drive on PC2. It does it in the background and you tend to forget about it. Very useful
