Microsoft Synctoy alternatives

If and when I move up to Windows 10 and not sure if Windows 10 supports Synctoy, so what other similar sync tools are there? A google search provides a few, but would rather get opinions from other users then test one by one. Thx.

Synctoy is very slow-is there something that is faster/better to back up my media folder? One hard drive is primary-the second one is the backup... Or is it going to be around the same speed for anything that large?
