The folder-pair relationship I've setup with Synctoy uses the
Synchronize-option (there are Contribute and Echo available as well), but I
don't see the Synchronize-choice working properly, other than adding files to
my home folder-backup, i.e. it doesn't delete old stuff that is deleted from
the flash-card.

Synchronize: "New and updated files are copied both ways. Renames and deletes
on either side are repeated on the other."

Sorry if I wasn't clear on this. I'll try some more and see if I can it
working properly.
