What is the best application for me to use to make sure that USB drive 1 is always synched up to USB drive 2. I see some options under the Utility menu but am not sure what the best and most straight forward method is to use. Should I use those tools or go with maybe Pschedule task on Time using code like I do with my other cron jobs. I'm just looking for the easiest method that requires a set it and forget it kind of thing.

Thanks!!

You could try xdelta file difference manager, I know it's in Slacko531 menu/utility, but not sure about lupu528

For more thorough syncing you'd need to try something like Unison,

Its an older dotpet, so not sure it'll run OK in 528
