Did you try Cobian backup? http://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=2563

Here is the home page of this software: http://www.cobiansoft.com/cobianbackup.htm
It is a pretty neat software, :) ... with LOTS of function and options.

Have a nice day.

@tactictoe
Yes, I have tried Cobian Backup in the past. The latest version is no longer portable. More- Cobian Backup is mainly a back-up program while I need a file-synchronization utility. Once Cobian Backup was open-source, later it became closed-source freeware, then it was no longer portable and finally it was discontinued, the forum- closed and the source code- sold.

Sad story, I read it on Luis Cobian page. Oh well at least all its previous version are still listed and link to download works, :)
