All the options are listed below it at least. There are some issues with posts on this site. + 1 Votes Not Helpful P_Faber February 20, 2013 at 10:41am PST That wasn't much of an answer, was it, ComputerCookie? How'd you go, markoalleno? FWIW, Total Commander has an excellent 'Synchronize Directories' (American spelling) function. Under Commands. See if that helps. + 0 Votes ROBOCOPY donr484 February 21, 2013 at 8:05am PST I'm a first time poster. I tried answering this several times. It doesn't seem to accept for some reason. I'll try several smaller answers... + 0 Votes ROBOCOPY Command Line donr484 February 21, 2013 at 8:14am PST I think you'd want to use this command line: ROBOCOPY \\sourcepc\sourceshare \\destinationpc\destinationshare /COPYALL /B /E /XN /R:10 /W:2 /LOG:\\loggingpc\logfileshare\logfile.txt /NFL /NDL Options: /COPYALL copies all file attributes from source /B uses backup mode /E copy subdirectories including empty ones /XN skips newer files already in the detination /R:10 /W:2 will attempt with 10 retries and 2 seconds between each /NFL don't include every file name in log (for a summary count) /NDL don't include every folder name in log (for a summary count) Note: If you want to list all the folders and files affected in the log, remove /NFL /NDL --- I usually build a summary log file, overwriting the last one. Then I use a vbscript to email the text of log file when it completes. ROBOCOPY is very robust and flexible. On a WAN where manually copying and pasting 2GB+ files causes older WatchGuard Fireboxes to crash, ROBOCOPY will copy dozens of GBs of huge SQL BAK files over the internet without fail. You can also specify complex scenarios like only copy the newest source file that starts with a certain name to the destination from specific sub folders in the source, which is great for folders containing timestamped filenames. Hope it helps!
