Cannot get this program ( Copywhiz ) to work correctly on Windows. I only want to paste the new or modified files from a portable hard drive backup to my computer. I select the "new or modified files" setting. The operation appears to be going through all the files, but when I check I still have old files. Can you suggest any remedy.

It would appear as if  Copywhiz  is copying all files on Windows. But in reality, it would skip files that are not required to be copied.

When you paste new or modified files,  Copywhiz  does not copy old files. However, this does not mean that the old files will be deleted from the destination folder. This functionality only means that same files will not be copied again. This way, you will save a lot of time.

The new update also displays how many files were actually skipped. You can download and install new update from here: http://www.conceptworld.com/Copywhiz/Download 

If you want to pick files created & modified after specific date then choose the 'Paste files by date" option inside a new folder. With this feature, you can be sure that older files are skipped completely.
