    Syncing 2 folders on different drives?


    Hi,

    I have 2 folders on different drives, one on internal drive, the other one on an external drive. Now how can I have them synced (automatically or manually is fine) when I have my external drive plugged in?

    I know this is kinda basic but cuz these files are important to me so I wanna ask first if you guys are familiar with some good ways.

    Thanks heaps!!!
