The latest build is not 5.1.2 but 5.1.320. The version history remarks that some fixes address BSOD and the product is now stable with Win 10. See http://www.techsoftpl.com/backup/verlog.php
. You can also download the latest by using the appropriate link. The latest build is free to users that had MF v5.0 / v4.x. Still have your license?
I have to say I actually don't see a 5.1.2 in the version history so maybe that was a typo. But if you have been happy with the product makes sure you try the latest.
Soryr my bad it was a typo. Yes version 5.1.320, it still gave me BSOD occasionally. It was running great for Windows 7 & 8, but ever since I upgraded to Windows 10 it made my PC crawl & BSOD on wake.
Thanks for the lecture mate, but this is not applicable for me. I was trying to sync just files from my internal HDD in my main PC to my portable HDD for my Surface Pro 2. I wasn't trying to sync OS drive.

I use Goodsync and disable the sync (i.e. only copy one way from master to backup). You can have multiple jobs and it does it all in the background. My local files get copied to 3 backups every night, and into the cloud as bandwidth will allow.
Cheers for the suggestion mate on the Goodsync. Is the app optimised i.e. not resources hungry on CPU & RAM? Can it runs on background & auto-sync external drive straight away?

I'm also quite happy with FreeFileSync, but use it manually only. I inspect what it wants to do to make sure it is OK before doing the sync. If I made a big mistake in the source drive without realizing it, I don't want to propagate that to the target drive.

I use FreeFileSync in basically the same way as Archibald and have, after many years of use, found that it is one of the easiest ways for me of keeping six to eight copies of my files on as many hard disks stored in three different locations.
Thanks again for the suggestion of FreeFileSync. The UI doesn't look very intuitive but I got to give a try.
