I need a programthat can compare folder and files and then Synchronize them from source to target

This must be done via a scheduled time

I have tried Beyon comapre 2.0 - but the scheduling is weak

Also tried Backup&Synchronize but again scheduling is weak

Can this sort of thing be done with a script or xcopy or does anybodt know a good program to use ?

A simple-ish batch file could do your syncing...

What are your target devices? -ie, drive C and drive D for example

Which device would do you mormally add and delete to and from? - ie, C or D for example OR both???
