Windows 10: How to copy and sync my documents to a different location
How to copy and sync my documents to a different location
I understand there are lots of articles on how to move my documents (or other personal folders) to another location - what I'm interested in is creating another folder in a different partition and have my documents folder files copied (not moved) to the other folder/partition. Then have the two folders synced periodically to keep them up to date. Is that possible?
Note that I've heard people say it can be done with one of those cloud storage services like dropbox. I'm more interested in having it on my computer rather than in the cloud.
Be nice to all, please?!
Use built in robocopy it will do that and you can gdt a GUI for it now
Thanks guys. I just realized what I was thinking about was actually "backup"! Will look up your links and other backup software too.
I use Goodsync. It's not free but it's a great program for backing up and syncing folders etc.

When I had Windows 7, I had literally every single thing in My Documents. Every song, every file, every tax record, every picture...literally everything. That way, when I backed up my hard drive, I just plugged in the My Passport Ultra drive,...
