    Backup question

    I want external disks A and B to have exactly the same contents - but I don't want to sit there for hours answering 'Do this for the next 50 conflicts.' What's the best way to do it?

    A file comparison program wouldn't help because the disks contain movies in folders by category, I'd have to copy the differences one by one manually.

    I have Vice Versa so maybe I could setup some sort of backup profile A to B, then B to A?

    Thanks - rev

    Yes, I've seen a few (Iomega Backupper, etc) and I usually use Vice Versa but this might replace it.
