Thanks Alex, I just started to use bestsync, and it seems to do the job nicely. I found sync toy to be a bit quirky, but bestsync is quite easy to use.

I use allway sync pro on windows xp for this exact purpose. Cheap, simple and very effective.
Colleagues use bestsync and sync toy which also do the job but i found allway sync easier.

Subject: [ARSCLIST] is there any idiot-proof program to keep folders sync'd between 2 USB drives?
I've been very frustrated googling around. Does anyone make software that just keeps a folder in
sync between two connected USB drives, ie if I update a file or save a new file, it just gets done
to the other drive without me having to do anything? I don't need any stuff about keeping old
versions, in fact I don't want that. What I want is, the same-name folder on two drives, kept in
sync as I update it, so if one drive crashes the data is safe on the other drive.
This would be for Windows XP, for now, but should not need a whole re-examination of the issue if I
have to move to Win7 next year.
