Re: thanks again folks! much appreciated :-)

That's great, exactly the kind of thing I was looking for.

Thanks for the additional info, it is a big help.

Hi Kerry,

Goodsync can be simply configured to be what you want it to be. I only run it after I have added new files or made significant changes to existing files. I have configured it to sync folders when I start the program so that when I am done with working on the PC I start Goodsync and just let it run. Depending on how much data you are syncing, the first run will be the longest but subsequent runs will be quicker as it is only comparing & updating the changes made since the last run.

I am syncing to an external Drobo unit via a USB2 connection so it is relatively slow. I shoot sport and a weekend may involve 5,000 shots so after they have been culled I will run Goodsinc that evening while I head off to bed. Next morning it is all done. When I have run it in the background while I am doing other work it does not seem to tax my PC anyway.

I hope this helps.
