Wow, what is this? I currently use robocopy in a .bat file to do my syncing. Windows Live Sync created way too many duplicates. Manually copying folders was not going to work, so I developed a rather crude solution.
I share my music collection with a roomate. We have different podcasts so I exclude that folder. We both sync to a centralized computer, replacing everything there. Then the other user would pull from the server with another script.
Each time a change is made, a "to" script must be run. The other user must run a "from" script to sync that change.
robocopy D:\Users\Trix\Music \\win-server\All\Music /MIR /R:0 /V /FP /XD "D:\Users\Trix\Music\Zune\Podcasts" /LOG:\\gambon\All\b-music.log /TEE
robocopy \\gambon\All\Music D:\Users\Trix\Music /MIR /R:0 /V /FP /LOG:\\win-server\All\b-music.log /TEE
Could sync toy be a simplified solution?
ohh ya... Sync 2.1 is blazing fast and really simple... you make a folder pair (Left and Right) and then choose sync, echo, or contribute... I would think you could put sync on each client computer, and just sync with the "server"... no scripts or a "to" and "from" approach... just sync... the only think to look out for is file deletes.. it will sync those too.
