    I have an external 120 Gb Hard drive (USB2)

    I have been backing up using 'Windows Explorer' copy/paste method. Now
    becoming a p.a.i. to copy 20Gb+ at a time.

    Idealy I would like to do one initial backup of all 'My Documents"
    files and then only add to that, any changed or new files.
    (Synchonising the directories in the backup.)

    What backup sofware is recommended?
