about as simple as possible. Will do a sync as well as a backup .. It's small on resources and doesn't require dotNe, and can run at specified intervals. . Does what it says and does it very well. I've tried all those listed here and many others ( at least a dozen) and some are either overkill , have issues and too complicated to set up.
