hi all, I need to implement a synchronization solution for files and folders (also containing subfolders) on S.O. windows. Synchronization must be done from “local” to a server (shared folder). We have usually used FreeFileSync, but we would like an “invisible” solution, without ever seeing GUI. I know that scripts can be used (but I should go deeper into that). But I wanted to ask if anyone knows of alternative solutions. thank you
Hello. In the meantime, thanks for the answer. I’ve already evaluated robocopy, but it doesn’t seem to work for me, as I understand that it works one way. My scenario presents a server and various machines that will write files locally and, when the connection is available, on that central server. with robocopy, I believe that, when I have files on the server, not present on machine A (because they were created by machine B), I would get the deletion of the files on the server, not the distribution of the files of B on A
I have written SyncTwoFolders for Mac but I didn’t make the modification in order to make it run under windows. (5 of my 11 applications run under windows).
SyncTwoFolders has a schedule and a Timer function (it launch sync every x minutes). If you want you can try it on Mac and I may have a look to what modifications I have to do for run under windows. I don’t say that to sell it to you, the 6 € won’t cover the time I will spend to make it runs under windows.
I know FreeFileSync but its name only. I don’t know what it does more or less than me.
Edit : if you test it and are fed up with remind donation window (which appears after 2 or 3 days), just send me an email from the about window and I will send you a serial.
