Hello. As part of my backup I simply copy those files I wish backed up to an external drive. Routinely I delete those files from the external drive and recopy and past them from the laptop to the external drive. This takes time.

 

Someone suggested I could use Synctoyt o speed up the process. Does this sound like a good idea?

That is basically what it is for. I know of people who do use Synctoy for this purpose, so yes it can work. Whether or not it works for you is only something you can decide. Since it is free, you can always try it out and see what you think.
