SyncToy fails to sync data and files in Windows 10, how to fix it?

"Hey there, do you have any recommendations about replacement software for Microsoft SyncToy? SyncToy was really amazing for syncing files and backing up important data for me in Windows 7. Now I've upgraded my Windows 7 into Windows 10 and bought a new computer installed Windows 8. 

I was planning to continue use SyncToy to protect my data in two computers. But it won't work. I indeed installed it on both PCs but it just won't work. I tried to find out the problem and got that SyncToy only supports Windows 7/Vista and XP. So how to fix this awkward situation? If you do know any free sync software that can replace SyncToy, please let me know."
