Remember: It must be easy to use.

All tools can be configured once and then run automatically when the drives are connected or on time based schedule. I wouldn't say that one is harder than the other, just different UI's.

webfrasse, I have a similar question. Will these software programs work if I have image files on several different external hard drives and want to regularly back up to a single large external drive? For further info: I keep images from each year of shooting on a separate external drive. As I do post processing, the information on each of these drives may (or may not) change between back-up cycles (typically every couple of months). Is the software smart enough to find and back up those changes when I connect the backup drive to the computer and run the back up?
