Hi,

 

My system is set to backup all my computer files automatically.

 

What I would like to do is to backup one folder, Navy, to a separate external drive.

 

This folder holds World Wat Two photographs and texts.

 

I do back it up manually but I would not like to miss out as some of this research is not replaceable.

 

I am not a computer geek so please make your reply to factor this in

 

Regards

I use Syncback free version and also GFI to back up my files and folders. With either one you can set when and which files/folders.

What were you having difficulty with?

Why didn't it work?

I have it running on win 10 and no issues what so ever. I am actually running 6 profiles and they all work.

Do you still want help?

I have an old windows sync I use.

I can give step by step if needed.
