Hi,

Is there an easy way, or free program that will allow me to synchronize a My Music folder on an external drive with the one on my PC.

Cheers for any help,

Rob.

It takes a long time... I think select all > copy > paste is all I need :rolleyes:

Copy Paste?... lol wont that work good?

But syncing only updates the target folder with changes thats been made in the source folder. Copy & Pasting copies everything from source to target folders overwriting old stuff. Plus it leaves behind stuff thats been deleted in the source folder (unless you empty the target folder first). Syncing is faster.
