SyncToy – Handy, practical free file/folder synchronizer from Microsoft

The significance of file synchronizing tools is: through simple actions to complete a large number of complex and repetitive, manual file/folder copying, moving operation. SyncToy is a free, easy-to-use, and full automatic file/folder synchronizer produced by Microsoft that supports multiple sync modes and command-line operation.

Unlike similar programs, SyncToy keeps very clear about the file/folder renaming process, it requires making an explicit confirmation to the synchronizing files/folders. In addition, its high freedom of customizations also can free users from heavy and repeated work like copy, move and synchronize between different directories. Eventually, we only need several mouse clicks to get all file/folder synchronization/backup work done.

I do believe SyncToy's 3 sync modes (Synchronize, Echo, Contribute) can meet the needs of most users. If let AppNee evaluate Microsoft's SyncToy with one word, it is "simple and practical".
