good tool for syncing windows folders....

I have a set of folders on a network drive that I would like to sync over a limited bandwidth link to another location. Does anyone know of a good tool for this that would maximize bandwidth and allow me to run it on a schedule?

I've been looking at things like Unison Sync but it didn't install even after I installed GTK+. Are there some other free options out there for this type of task?

oh, and I forgot to mention, if you have windows 7 or 2008, it's already built in to the OS.

also look at using /MIR (if you want to purge anything that's removed from the source) and if you care about file permissions and properties, also use a /COPYALL

There's a million different things you can do with it but go through all the options (robocopy /?) and work out what you need and don't.

Thanks for all the input guys. I ended up using Puresync (which was almost free) but those other options were good ones and steered me in the right direction.
