    Hello,

    Opening a Folder Compare session, opening a pair of folders and copying files can attempt to preserve NTFS file attributes if the Session menu -> Session Settings, Handling tab option is enabled.

    Opening the Text Compare allows you to see files and copy/edit text, but wouldn't copy over permissions.

        Beyond Compare can automatically update the comparison after a specified number of minutes, but it can't automatically sync every X minutes from the GUI.

        You can automate a sync using a Beyond Compare script, then run the script on a schedule using the Windows Task Scheduler. However, this isn't suited to syncing on a real-time basis, it works better for something like a nightly sync job.
