    What Did I Do Before WINMERGE...?

    A: I laboured up to my armpits through files and folders trying to synchronise various copies
    of backups, that's wot!

    Now I'm simply comparing folders and copying "left" and "right" depending on what's not where
    it should be. - It's so-o-o-oh-hh much easier!

    I think the name used to throw me, making me think it did something else

    Oh, Winmerge...

    I use SyncBack (fee version) to sync/backup my external drives. Come to think of it, been a while since I performed a backup!

    That's a good trick!

    I was being fooled by the speed of copying image files - no time for progress window to show - but it
    was a different story for video files. The trick is to stop or pause the background "Comparison" of the
    folders.
