Hey, um tech people? If I need to copy only files that have changed from one folder to another on windows 7 on a regular basis, what is the best way to do this? I was using UnstoppableCopier but its started crashing on a regular basis. Help? (I can provide more details)


@Canageek May I suggest unison? It really shines for two-way sync between computers, but it can handle two local roots as well. FOSS, of course.

@solarchemist Can it do folder to folder? I've already got shared folders set up, and don't want to have to mess with university network firewalls and such.

@Canageek I feel you. I haven't used it in that manner myself. But I think it should work between two local folders. Although I've been googling it right now without much success :-(
