I have plenty of storage now in my HTPC.

Is there a simple way to back up any incremental changes on, say, Drive D, to another Drive, say E, on a scheduled basis?

I would like to store all my movies on 1 drive, say a 4 TB HDD called Drive D, and maybe every Sunday morning, at 2:00 a.m., copy any changes (additions/deletions) to another 4 TB HDD called Drive E.

Seems simple. I don't want to restore from this, nor have any OS files or program data, just my media...and when done I would have 2 exact copies located on 2 hard drives.

Thanks in advance,

David

FreeFileSync. RoboCopy has had some problems recently, especially in Windows 7. It can also use Shadow Copy and back up open files.

Thanks,

Can this be scheduled to execute at a certain time?

Well,

I went with SyncToy and have it scheduled with Task Manager, and that is slick!

I have it syncing one drive to the other, only copying adds/changes/and deletions at 2:00 a.m.

Great find, and it's free!!!

Thanks everybody!

David
