Thank you, I was hoping to find a utility like this.

I used to use this app on early versions of OS X and was super simple to set-up and use, and it was also quite a bit faster than just manually copying a folder using the Finder. I now use the almighty CarbonCopyCloner for macOS X 10.13, but it seems to be incredibly slow at doing a simple 'sync the changes' compared to this app - I may have to look at getting the newer versions of this one again.
