Windows 7: File Manager.

File Manager.

I've a folder in my pc, in which the contents are changed every now and then i.e files are copied, deleted, etc. And to keep it from losing, I keep a copy of it in my external hard disk. But it is tiresome, because every day I've to delete the folder in my hard disk and paste from my desktop.

So, is there a software which checks the content of the two folders and copies from the parent folder to the other?

I've heard that there is no need to use a backup software, instead there are file managers for it.

Any suggestions?

Well, the problem is, I need to save it in my external hard disk. Internet is not really an option for me.
