w/o any explanation of what this utility is I'd say Microshid can not be trusted...
on/for/w/about anything...
look what they just did to AMD users...
the havoc they have caused w/ W10...
and they want us to blindly use ''another'' something of theirs...

This utility has been around for years. It works great. You should try it sometime. It is one of the Microsoft Power Toys, and the only one I use.

I use the MS Task Scheduler to fire up SyncToy every night at 3AM and copy new files from my E:\Drive to an external drive. Then it runs another file that does the same thing to my Western Digital MyCloud. So, in a matter of a couple of minutes, the program makes 2 backups of my daily work...whilst I sleep!

and you use the cloud too.. eh...
did you know that Microshid doesen't use any servers on US territorial soil and that's how they beat several ''infringement'' lawsuits...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....
