I told you about SyncBack two days ago. Have you checked it out yet?
It will do exactly what you want; I do the same thing. I don't even
use the high end version, I use the freeware simple version and it
works perfectly. Simply copies files that have been changed from
designated folders and leaves the unchanged ones alone. Doesn't use
compressed or proprietary formats. Maintains existing folder
structures. Files are accessible by any program, doesn't require use
of Syncback to access a file. Costs nothing. What else could you
want? Check it out. You'll be pleased.

Not yet. One per day is all I can tolerate. I started with second copy simply because they had a very good description of how it worked on the web page before I downloaded it.

It is having trouble with one file, which may be specifc to that file. Not sure why, but it always says the file is in use. I may reboot and see if that clears it.

I may have a problem if I unconnect the external, but I have no plans to do that.
