Synchronize directories with Total Commander

It`s in some way, manual backup. Total Commander was the first file manager that I start to use on Windows OS. Was it on Windows 98? I thick it was Windows 98.

Anyway, I am fun of photography and I use  directory synchronization on daily base to synchronize my primary with my backup location. For this purpose I just created two directories with WordPress installation, one on each partition. I have changed few files on primary location in order to show you how to synchronize directories.

Notice on Slide 1. two wordpress directories on two locations. You need to navigate to them. I always navigate to original directory on left side and to backup directory on the right side of the panel. Select Commands  on tools bar.
