What is the best way to keep a folder synchronized with my USB drive?

I know there is a similar topic on syncing between computers, but I'm looking for an application to run on one computer that will sync a "document/file" folder with a folder on my secondary/external USB drive.

You could run a freeware synchronization program. I've used SyncBack (freeware) and I'm very happy with it. I use it to synchronize some folders to as NAS at home.

I use Unison with Windows/Cygwin as well as with OSX. SyncBack is a pretty good choice for windows though.

WinMerge could also do the trick.
