Dear all,

I'd like to backup an external drive the way Time Machine does with the computer's internal drive yet I couldn't find any unambiguous information on this. I have 2 external hard drives - 1TB one - sort of internal drive extension - containing data I work on everyday and thus keep changing its structure. The other one is 2TB drive which I bought for backup purposes and so I would like to keep the two in sync somehow. Is there any software I could use?

Thank You in advance
Pawel

ChronoSync = $40 and simple

rsync & Automator = free but a little fiddly

Best,
Andy
