I have a question about how to properly set up GoodSync to accomplish my backup goal.

Say I have 2 hard drives, A & B. I want to be able to run a process in GoodSync to copy any new files on drive A (that weren't on A the last time I ran this process) over to drive B. So basically copy anything new on the A drive to the B drive, but I don't want the process to delete anything that is presently on the B drive that is no longer on the A drive. Basically, I want the B drive to contain a copy of anything that was ever on the A drive. I don't want anything deleted from the B drive if it is no longer on the A drive, like what happens with a simple sync.

I hope this makes sense. Any insight or assistance would be welcomed. I'm using GoodSync version 9.9.16.6. The 2 drives are external USB3 drives.

Thanks in advance!

Dave

Free or paid.
The free works quite well. The paid version gives you the function of rolling incremental backups.
