Windows 7: Can Win7 copy the new\modified files and skip the same

Can Win7 copy the new\modified files and skip the same

I have Win7 Ultimate SP1 x64 and I want to copy my second partition but not as single image file but by normally like simple copy=>paste.
I did it once and now I want to add only the new\modified files and skip the same but I don't know how to do that(the partition is little above 1tb and I probably have around 3-4gb of changes since the last time)

If I need an external program,can someone suggest something free and portable if possible.
The Windows Backup feature doesn't look very user friendly...I can't just plug the external usb hdd anywhere and simply browse the files

What's on this "second partition"??



Data--pictures, video files, mp3s, Excel workbooks?

All of the above?

Do you want this copy of your second partition to be bootable?

FreeFileSync does that job beautifully, and easy to setup.

You may have to copy all files the first time you use it (have to try it, no idea), but later only changed files are copied.

(And if you wish you can keep some versions of deleted files too. - optional)

See how it looks like
