Could someone kindly explain Sync vs Copy?
I have files stored in Music on the NSA and copied them to an external USB drive using the 'Copy' function. I have since added new files on the NSA and need to update the USB drive. How do I best perform an Update please? Thanks, Jeff

    I think the main difference is that "Copy"  can create a new folder for your new files and also keep the old files at the same time and "Sync" will replace the old files with new files. Therefore, if you want to keep the old files, I suggest using "Copy" and create a new folder for the new files.
