It's true that I'd rather use rsync, but since I can't install cygwin on my work WinXP box (and rsync doesn't give you a chance to interactively approve file copying), FileSync actually does a better job for me.

Useful program - FileSync
FileSync is a Windows program that synchronizes two folders so that they contain the same files and sub-folders. I use it to keep a backup of my teaching files from my notebook computer on my USB drive. Then, I use FileSync again on a desktop computer to keep a copy there, too. FileSync is even set up on a hotkey so all I do is plug in the USB drive and hit Ctrl-Alt-S and it starts up.
