    Syncback and AllwaySync free versions do that quite well along with a whole bunch of others.

    Yes, I forgot to look and see if my Syncback copied all the contents over when we went on Daylight Savings Time (date and time change) but in the past when something changes globally like that in one set and not the other then everything gets copied over even though nothing really changed.
    Shouldn't have that problem if this is all on the same system though and for what its worth AllwaySync advertises, " Innovative algorithms do not rely on system clock accuracy."
