    i looked into it. almost too complex for what i need.
    can you confirm this will allow incremental sync of 2 external hard drives ?

    I'm not sure if Carbon Copy Cloner can do what you want, but it might be worth checking out.

    this looks great. lncremental backups and can be scheduled.
    does CCC app need to be open/running for the scheduled backup to initiate ?

    No, scheduled tasks run in the background. CCC scheduled tasks FAQ.

    I love the "flexibility" of SuperFlexibleSynchronizer (pun intended)
