A versatile disc backup program

What is SyncDiscs?

SyncDiscs makes the contents of two discs or directories the same. For example, it may be used for keeping general backups on the same or different media, to keep an exact copy of a hard disc on a removable disc, or for synchronising a portable computers disc with that on a main machine.

SyncDiscs was originally written by David Pilling. With the full agreement and cooperation of David, Chris Johnson has taken on the maintenance and development of SyncDiscs, and the latest version is now available. A further consequence of this is that any correspondence about SyncDiscs should be directed to Chris Johnson, and not to David.
