Psychidellic Rev

Remotely managing my shit. .

So in XP I used a handy little utility from microsoft called synctoy to keep my mp3 directory on my pc synchronized with the mp3 directory on my file server.

SyncToy is not compatible with windows 7 as of yet. . . : /

this sent me on a search for a utility by which I can keep the data in the repositories synchronized.

Theres not a whole lot of free stuff out there, and what I did find, well frankly, sucks. . .

but then I found a reference to robocopy. . .

it's like xcopy on steriods with network support.

It's been part of the windows system forever. . . how did I not know about this ever before?

VERY handy. . . robocopy d:\mp3\ \\delta\Music /MIR /Z

I can create a batch file, run it as an administrator, and schedule it to synchronize the folders. . . and I never have to look at it again. . .
