    I gave this to someone a while back whom initially preferred suggestions involving a fancy GUI, only to revert to this for their "humble" needs. Look around as you'll find several similar such articles including a corresponding Robocopy GUI to simplify it all. Don't ask, I don't run Seven.

    Oop's, no real-time.

    I haven't used backup genie nor do know how it works. But I have used syncback freebie and it does offer a synchronization profile

    I regularly use Syncback Pro both for backup and sync, and have never noticed it either on my previous rig with XP or the new one with 7

    ozSync has real-time monitoring. I haven't tried it (yet) personally.

    Syncback has a free version and a pretty good rep.
    Also take a look a GFI backup.
    It's free and it syncs.
    Enjoy.

    No it doesn't have that feature although you have the option to run the sync profile every few minutes or so.

    Yes, it does.

    I'm talking about the paid version. Trial Syncback SE. I myself use Syncback Pro.

    Make profile > modify>options>expert>when>changes:

    *run this profile when any files or directories are changed


    I have trialed all the main players in the backup/sync department. Syncback stands head and shoulders above the competition. It is very RELIABLE and reasonable priced given the options.

    Do any of the programs also copy the registry paths for whatever program I would backup?
    Thanks.

    I'm not sure but I don't think so. Syncback is not an imaging program.

    FreeFileSync has a separate RealtimeSync program that can be used to launch any command when monitored folders change. One command that can be executed is a FreeFileSync sync. FreeFileSync is open source and works on Windows (x64 included) and Linux.
