After all my computer woes of the winter I finally purchased+installed an external hard drive. Someone at another forum helped me download+set up a MS program,SyncToy.

I am having a hard time in even understanding the help section for SyncToy,so I'm coming back here.
I would really like more information about the run results. I've run this program about 3 times now+I always have "errors".
The person who helped me set up SyncToy is busy now with exams+doesn't really have the time to help me further with this.
Thanks in advance to anyone who is willing to help me better understand this program.

I believe we have a simpler one in our Freeware Applications thread. I'll find it and repost

Here you go

Thanks,Mark,
I was told that SyncToy would be easiest for myself,the novice user, instead of Cobian.
Even the help section at SyncToy seems too "techy" for me. :thumbsup:
I'm really not sure exactly what I'm backing up even! I was told to run MozBackup first, then plug in my external drive+run SyncToy. I don't like all the error messages it gives me in the "run results"

I've been told that it's a good idea to backup my system's info weekly, but I don't fully understand,really.
I don't even understand all the info that pertains to "my documents"....sigh.....

So, I've got something I'm using, but don't know how nor why.

Thanks
