I want to verify that my backups contain an exact replica of my profile folder in Documents and Settings, with emphasis on My Documents and Application Data. I have a vague idea of recursively outputting the file size and names of everything in a certain directory, but I don't know how to accomplish it.
- I use Windows XP on an Eee PC
- I don't have an external CD drive
- My external HD is connected (and powered) via USB
- edit I use SyncToy to copy everything in a specified directory; it supposedly only copies changed files
I would prefer a stand-alone GUI application if possible (because I'd like to recommend my solution to non-tech-savvy friends), but I am willing to install Cygwin and use a script. I have read a similar question about verifying Time Machine backups, but I believe my requirements are different.
2nd edit Thanks for all of the answers so far! I've tried to clarify my question a bit, but I left my Eee at home and can't pick a best answer till I start installing and trying out some of these utilities.
