Windows Alternative to Rsync?

I have an external hard drive connected to my Windows7 and I want it to automatically sync with a folder in my hard drive.

On the Linux side I'm aware of rsync which is the perfect solution for me now. Unfortunately I have to use Windows 7 these days and I am looking for a Windows alternative that is easy to use.

Well I have not used it in a while, but SyncToy would be my first suggestion.

oooh...look, yup definitely a dupe. – EBGreen Jul 26 '11 at 17:36

Try "robocopy", Windows 7's in-built utility.

(Though, I think the question may be a duplicate.)

That's it, I think. – Shiki Jul 26 '11 at 17:45

I use CrashPlan, backing up to a local drive it is free. The only time you actually pay is if you use CrashPlan Central (their online backup service).

Previously I used FreeFileSync.
