I am curious to know if there is a method of automatically synchronizing two or more different file paths for backup purposes.

For example: whenever I save a document to my shared documents folder, I would also like it to automatically save to my flash drive.
AND/OR
Given a certain command, windows can compare all of the files in either folder and replace older versions of a document with newer versions, and add any new files to the other folder.

I am well aware that it is possible to just copy and paste, but this is a big hassle because both filepaths are used frequently, and often I will have new files in both folders when I want to synchronize them, and I can't just copy and paste because it overwrites some things I don't want overwritten.

So the bottom line is I want to know if there is any way to synchronize and update two folders.

I certain it could be done - but it sounds to me like a job that is best suited for either a batch file or a bit of ad-hoc programming in c/c++ (or whatever language is most suited set out for the job in hand.) Unfortunatly im no programmer so I cant advise you further :whistling:
