I have a folder on SDA1 that I want to back up and sync to SDA2. What is the best tool for this. I just want to set it and forget it so that when I make a change to the folder on SDA1, the change will be made to the folder on SDA2 automatically.

Am I using the right tool because when I make a change to the SDA1 folder the update is not reflected in the SDA2 folder

Hello, rmcellig

I find jFileSync quite efficient for this. http://jfilesync.sourceforge.net/

It requires java, however. http://www.java.com/en/download/

Best regards.

Can you just clarify what you want?
Do you want it to be backed up immediately, or at regular scheduled intervals? Pbackup or Pmirror can organise the latter.

In the screenshot it looks to me like you haven't scheduled a time for it to be backed up, as the "Schedule" column is empty.

Basically what I want to do is sync two folders at specified times of the day, like every 10 minutes, something like that.

What I want to do is test it with two sample folders and make sure it works before using it on my actual folders I want to sync.

I will be syncing a folder on my HD to a folder on my external USB drive once I figure all this out.

With Puppy Backup and Pschedule it would be easy to mirror
two folders every 10 minutes.

Puppy backup has a feature -----> the command to
do the backup procedure is written out in a log .

So you just have to cut this line out of the log

and paste it in Zigbert's pschedule.

Note that only mirroring can be done by puppy backup.

Here's an example...
