I have a WG flash drive, 100 GB and need a synchronizing program to use with it. Can anyone advise of several that are reputable from which to choose? Thank you.

Thank you so much for the referral. The program I am trying now seems rather complicated. When I tried to use it for sychroniztion, it took a full day plus to do so! Is that the way they work?

Are you open on this thread to any more questions about using my Flash DRive in connection with a software program? If not I understand.

Am trying to figure out the difference between: sychronization and copying and another term the program I am trying is using but I cannot locate that term right now.

Found the other terms this program is using:

backup, consolidation, replication and of course syncronization

am not clear on their meanings and so far have not found clearification on their site.

Backup = A copy of computer data (as a file or the contents of a hard drive); also, the act or an instance of making a backup.

Consolidation = Unite two or more backups into a single new backup.

Replication = The process of reproducing or duplicating.

Synchronization = Maintain the same version of files across multiple devices.

Thank you so much Spyware dr. Appreciate the info - will try to absorb and make judgment of the software I am using on trial basis. Since I am new to all of this, all programs right now seem daunting to me though they declare themselves very easy to use.
