I want to create a folder on my desktop.


I want to copy that folder on my external hdd.


When I want to link my external hdd to my computer I want them to be synced as two-way. Macrium Reflect finds the modified and missing ffiles and sync them.


Could you guide me?

FreeFileSync  (downloaded from fosshub) or 2BrightSparks' SyncBackLite (now version 8.2) may do the job much better than most backup / restore / cloning programs -- IMO.   I've been using MR6 for some time now, and do not believe it will sync folders and files, files.
