Hello bleepingcomputer geniuses, I come to you with another question of mine.
I want to synchronize different files on my external HD to sync up with different files on my laptops HD so whenever my external is plugged in it will automatically update with anything new that is added on my laptop (example: music folder on external will stay updated with what is on my laptop). However, I don't want my laptop to get updated with files that are on my external HD as I have files on my external HD that I do not need cluttering up the smaller space on my laptops HD. I am using windows 7 Professional.

Try Goodsync. It's free if you stay within the free license restrictions, which your usage seems to.

You'll just have to learn how to configure it. It won't automatically sync, but that will be a simple 2-click process, if properly configured.

I recommend Allway Sync. I've been using it for a long time.

It has auto sync and you can change the settings to only go one way (laptop to external hdd). There are plenty of customizable options.

Check it out and see what works best for you. :huh:
