SyncToy sounded good until I read the Wiki
"A significant weakness of SyncToy, including the latest release, is
that it does not notify the user of conflicts in which both copies of
a file have been modified. It simply uses the latest version and
overwrites the oldest. Without proper notification, the user could
lose important changes on the older version."
That is NOT good.
