    is there a program (free, preferably) that can "update backup" various folders to an external HD?

    by "update backup" i mean it will copy onto the ext. HD but will not remove anything from it.

    say i used to have files A and B in a folder Z on my PB and made a backup in an ext. HD. since then, i erased files A and B, but created C on the PB. now, i want to backup folder Z in such a way so that C gets added onto the backup folder Z and Z will contain A, B and C... (note that if i simply dragged Z from PB to external, A and B will be lost because they aren't on PB anymore...)

    i found many choices in versiontracker - is there any that any of you guys recommend?

    You can use Apple's Backup 2.0.2 if you have .mac.

    silly me, should have looked further... (i only saw the first page on versiontracker -> search "backup", there were 4 pages total...)

    there's an app called synk. it's free and it's perfect. it gives you preview and does what i needed...

    here's the link for anyone interested.

    too bad i had lost a few movies due to stupidity. they weren't critical, but they will be missed. :( (i know, i tried using free data recovery, but i am not getting through... oh well. one was a particularly sweet clip of red wings scoring a power play goal at joe louis... surprising clarity even though i took it with my compact digital camera...)
