hi guys
i back up ALL my photos to a SSD regularly, but have decided to also backup my RAW files to another drive as well. this just my RAW files. my current system means dragging and dropping folders of all my monthly photos to the SSD. apart from choosing the raw files individually, is there a better way to choose them to transfer.

Depending on how technical you are, ROBOCOPY is an option. I use it nightly to an external drive.
There are additional options.

Scooter Software Beyond Compare
Siber Systems GoodSync
