  1. Hi all....

    At the moment I have all my music stored on the file server, I have a copy of it also on my laptop as I take this out to do some dj'ing work, the kids are always updating the music folder with new tunes and I find that I have to sort of pick whats been added and manually transfer the files across to my laptop, thing is it's getting kinda hard now as there is over 12gig of music.

    So is there any thing in XP that I can use (or a 3rd party app) to copy only the newly added files, something that looks at my version of the folder then at the file server version, spots the difference and copies over only whats not on the laptop.

    thanks for the quick reply i'll take a look at both and see if they are what I need.

    Seems daft that XP doesnt have anything that can tell the difference between to folders and list the difference between them with an option to update the larger to the smaller.
