"Works great, my only Backup Software"
Best backup and sync software that I've found, for XP. For a free version, it does everything I need it to.
I've got it mostly set to backup my hard drive to an external drive, and I can tailor Profiles to tell it exactly which directories I want it to deal with, and exactly how to deal with any changed files therein. I've also used it to sync a directory between two computers on my LAN. Plus, when it's scanned a directory, it gives a list of what it's found, and you can at that point exclude anything.
And there's online documentation to help you understand anything that might not be obvious, which most all of it is.
I still use XP, so I don't know if there is a version that works on Win7. (I really hope that when I get there, there will be.)
This backup software has totally filled my need for a Backup and Sync program on my XP. And it has never ever messed up anything.
