I am also disappointed with the sync function and it's failure to sync deletions. When you sync, the Maxtor Manager program shows a preview window, where you can select or unselect the files you want to sync. In the screen capture below, you can see a table that keeps a count (supposedly) of Additions, Deletions, and Conflict. The text even says, "deletions will be synchronized."
Hope Seagate can fix this bug soon!

Backup normally is used to maintain a really old copies of the files.. Say 3 months ago.. .If I later change the folder with my photos, and instead of having 10 of them just got 1, I want Synch, not Backup. If you Backup, the new Backup will override effectively deleting other 9 folders that I did backed 3 months ago.. That's buddy what you say? Think first, then say.
This is a bug, and it's ridiculous that it's been 2 years as I see posts' date they can't fix that simple bug. Learn think or two Seagate maybe from Palm.
P.S..: I sort of 'invented' other way - not elegant at all.. .but ... if I do work on my photos on my local machine, and want to use synch , so 'updated' ver is alson on my segate external drive (1T) I fiirst delete all this 'photos' from 'synch directory' via 'encryption program' and later just 're-synch' . ... very sluggish, but works. People, don't convince and reinvent the wheel, and do not put sorry but excuses for Segate. Shame on them.

one more thing: when I say I first delete files (photos) from synch directory, I mean from they synch directory 'seating' on external drive' . This maneuver effectively fix problem of 'not being able to delete via synch files' and the new 'synced' copy on external exactly matches the current 'photo directory' of my local machine. This is a 2 stage solution, and lengthy, but works. At least this way Synch is Psyching updated copies, and do not have to go via Backup and problem of overriding and deleting my old files... (sometimes for instance your newly burned photos may be lost, corrupted, got DVD with screeches and hence non-accessible; then here you go: open your backup and 'restore' your precious photos'... ).
