    Folder Syncronising?

    Folder Syncronising?

    I tried doing a search to find something but I think it is best that I get exactly what I want... Myself and tider was speaking to each other last night about this.

    My home PC is labled A51HPC on the network. The CarPC is A51Eclipse. Both computers are setup somewhat the same. They have a 160gb hd that is partitioned in 3. 20GB = C:\Vista/CF, 32.5GB = Installations, 100GB = Storage.

    Inside of Storage there are 3 Folders, Music, Video and Photo.
    My home PC is what I download music, video and photos to. But my Eclipse is setup as my mobile photo booth. I have a card reader and all my camera equipment... even some custom stands for camera's around the car.

    So what I want to do, I want my car/home pc's to sync up when specified and update each other's folders. If there is something new in the Music Dir then it will add it and keep my playlist up to date. If there are new photos in the photo directories, They will copy the new files over and everything will be kept up to date. This way I dont have to manualy copy things.

    I'm sure making a batch file or something in vb wouldn't be hard to do at all... but I'm not that computer literate any more. Maybe a few years ago I could have easily pulled it off... but now.... I've been out of computers for a while.

    But I know I could make a command file with the lines of:

    Code:
    xcopy E:\Music *.* \\A51Eclipse\Music
    xcopy E:\Video *.* \\A51Eclipse\Video
    xcopy E:\Photo *.* \\A51Eclipse\Photo
    The only problem with that is that going over wireless... it will overwrite all the GIGS and GIGS of files I have. I have 20gb of just music!

    And I was thinking that I could set it up to run when I click Standby on CentraFuse...It will run some schedualed tasks of updating all the files and then defragmenting and then go into standby. I really want this to be as automated as possible. Nothing manual!

    So hopefully this is enough info on what I want. Lemme know if you guys know of anything that would help me out.

    If Centrafuse is running in RC4.2 and you copy files to one of your selected music folders everything will be automatically added to your library...

    As for the sync part, there are options out there for syncing folders over networks...

    I use SyncToy from Microsoft. It is a power tool and is setup as a windows task. Works great. You can download it for free on microsofts site.

    Ok, so I am working with SyncToy now and it is pretty much everything I wanted! I can come home, park the car in the garrage, the pc never shuts off, just standby after a few minutes of the ignition being off. So I can come home, park the car in the garrage, go to my home pc and do whatever I want and then sync the files and go to bed... get up the next morning to go to work and there all the new files are! YAY! Thanks!
