I have an external hard drive which I use to store my files on. It's had problems in the past so I bought another hard drive to use as a backup for these files. I wanted to use the briefcase feature in Windows to make a briefcase and store a copy of the files in the briefcase in my other hd and sync it as needed so that when I make changes to the original files (on my external) they will be copied to the files on my other hard drive.

I tried to make a briefcase on the new hard drive and copy my files to it, but the process would not go thru (I guess because the files are so large - over a terabyte in size), so then I copied the files to the hd and tried to cut and paste them into the briefcase. When I went to update the files as they had been modified in the external original files I got no results.

What am I doing wrong? Do you know how I can use the briefcase feature to do this. I really need to back up my files and want an easy way to do it successfully. Please help me out.

Thanks Smile
