I am a Windows 7 user and looking for a sync tool that exactly copies the structure of the source to that of the destination.
The scenario is as follows:
- I have a laptop in which I save my daily projects. I always bring this laptop wherever I go to work, either at my school or at my house.
- At school I have a room in which I put an external hard drive to backup my laptop data. Upon arriving at school I always sync the external data with my laptop. Before leaving the school, I also do the synchronization if I make some modification in my laptop data.
- I do the same thing when I arrive and leave my house.
