Syncing files, rather than folders.
Hi, I wonder wether some-one could give me a bit of assistance ? I am looking for a way to synchronise two or three files - not folders but files. I want to do this on one drive but in different folders. I keep a list of applicants to a course in a couple of folders in different directories on one hard drive on a PC. This prevents the loss of the data in the case of some-one inadvertently either deleting the file or even moving it by mistake and not knowing where it went.
We have found that it can be fairly easy to move a file to an unknown location, particularly on a Win 7 laptop with a large mouse pad. So I would like to be able to keep two or three copies of the same file, and to update or synchronise the files whenever I have added data to one of the files.
Any good suggestions would be welcomed, but I would rather not get suggestions referring to synchronising folders as I don't need this information thanks.

Hi, thanks for the suggestion. I have seen quite a lot of posts here and there regarding SyncToy so I may as well give it a go. I do know that programs such as FreeFileSync and PathSync don't do what I would like. I wonder if there is an alternative to synchronising,
I have a recollection of updating files at one time, where copying the data from one file into another file only highlighted the information that was different when it was copied across, but I don't know what the program was. It could have been something along the lines of Adobe, but I don't think so.
Anyway, I am open to other suggestions on how to achieve a solution.
