  • Synchronize: New and updated files are copied both ways. Renames and deletes in one folder is repeated on the other.
  • Echo: New and updated files are copied left to right. Renames and deletes on the left are repeated on the right.
  • Subscribe: Updated files on the right are copied to the left is the file name already exists on the left.
  • Contribute: New and updated files are copied left to right. Renames on the left are repeated on the right. Similar to Echo, except there are no deletions.
  • Combine: New and updated files are copied both ways. Renamed and deleted files are ignored.

I’ve been using SyncToy for doing some occassional backups on a Windows pc. It just works.
