Just one thing

SyncBackFree is the freeware version of SyncBack. It is *not* an evaluation version of SyncBackPro/SE.

Just one thing

SyncBack's quite impressive, but there's one thing I don't care for.

If you change a subfolder's name in any way—even by one character—then do a backup, SB doesn't analyze the backup and realize that all of those subfolder's contents had already been copied, and its name was just changed. It deletes the backed-up subfolder and recopies the whole thing.

This just happened again, backing up a 4-gb subfolder to a flash drive.

Maybe no backup software is that "smart". And yes, I know you can do a simulated run first, each time, and sift through it so you understand everything that'll happen, before it happens. :-k But yeesh, y'know?
