I know that Backup All Files synchronizes the source drive with a clone drive. It makes the clone drive excatly the same as the source one.

But what if your clone drive is twice the size of your source drive, and while you want it to be just like the source (being bootable and having all the files synchronized) - you also want it to have couple of folders that source doesn't have and they always reside there on the clone...?

Is it possible that only folders and files identical to the source will be updated and synchronized, and other folders on the destionation clone drive would be left untouched?

Thank you!

The User's Guide deals with this, Izzy, but the best way to do this is to partition the destination into a "Backup" partition and a "Data" partition, and NOT mix the two...

You bet, Izzy. Other options are in the User's Guide chapter on "Storing a backup alongside other files..."
