Used Dsync for 2 decades, free and functions. Try it.

The "backend" is the command line tool. The frontend is the gui for said tool.

Can it backup the whole system, i.e. all os2-visible partitions to an
USB stick formatted in JFS because JSF can take files greater than 2Gib
in size. And She will have two USB sticks for backup/restore function,
the 1st is for Week1, the 2nd is for Week2. Can EasySync backup
cat/files where changes have taken place, for example in the mailer and
FF where for example bookmarks and history are changed? With PM Backup,
She can set up a backup scheme where the whole system is backed up every
Saturdan and Incremental backups done on Sun-Fri, then switch USB stick
to the 2nd one for the week after the first FULL backup and doing the
Full + Incr backups for week two. Then switch back to the 1st USB stick
and repeat the cycle again. Did just that when She backed up to a DAT74
tape with BackAgain Pro, had two tapes, one for week1 and the 2nd for Week2.

Btw, why shouln't She use the Migrate Mail function to the new profile
rather than the "hand copy" method you suggested? It's not only the mail
that must be migrated, the Newsgroups must also be migrated AND the
Adress Book, too. Are there risks using the Migrate function for
mail&newsgroups that She isn't aware of?
