So I transferred all my data from the PC (Windows 7 Home Premium) to my private iCloud. But on the one hand I want to have direct access on my PC, on the other hand I want to back up my data. To my disappointment, Windows 7 Home Premium does not have the function to access offline folders and files, meaning no sync center!
I googled a little bit around and I found SyncToy which is a freeware tool in Microsoft’s PowerToys series that provides an easy-to-use graphical user interface for synchronizing files and folders. For details, just have a look to the excellent and compact explanation of SyncToy in Wikipedia. There is a SyncToy forum, too, to get support.
I tested it, it is easy to install and setup, and it really works!
Stay tuned! 😉
