All of us keep a carbon copy of our important folders which we keep on updating after certain time so that in case the original document gets corrupted or lost, we can take the help of it. This process can be easy for small folders but for a folder which has many sub-folders inside it, is a difficult task. We have to first check which sub-folders have been updated and which are not. And then, copy the updated one to the copy folder. This whole process is very boring and confusing.
