I'm using folder synchronization to create a second copy of my backup files to a removable drive that is smaller than my primary backup drive. By default it appears that robocopy will copy all files in my initial backup folder. This is a problem as my removable drive is not large enough to hold everything.
Is there a way to set up the synchronization script (vbscript) so that only the last full backup and differentials/incrementals done after it are copied?
Thanks for any help you can provide.

One approach might be to rely on Reflect's creation of new backup files with their archive attribute set.  The Robocopy "/m" option will copy only those file and reset the archive attribute. Using Robocopy's "/maxage:<N>" option might be another possibility.  A complete Robocopy command-line reference is available in this TechNet article.
