looking for simple file mgmt /file mirror app..

Basically, I like to manually backup/mirror a folder/subset of folders between my primary drive and an external backup drive. What I have been doing is just naming the folder with the date and reimaging every once in a while.

What I'd like to find, is a small app that can compare the contents of two folders (and their subsets of folders), find the differences from the source folder, then give me the ability to just copy the newer files over to the backup drive.

This way, I can manually duplicate whats on the two tree's w/o recopying everything.


That make since?
