Any Sync software that uploads the files in a folder to an Online server?

Q: Any Sync software that uploads the files in a folder to an Online server?

Well I just realized that about half of my life is stored on my hard-drive. I'm backing up with an external HD but being the paranoid I am, if the house is burnt down.. the backup doesn't help much.

Any software that automatically uploads any file that I put in a specific folder to some server? So I can access it from another computer and download the stuff back, just in case.

Preferred Solution: Any Sync software that uploads the files in a folder to an Online server?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Any Sync software that uploads the files in a folder to an Online server?

You will hardly find a software doing that. But you can always upload it with:

http://www.megaupload.com
Rapidshare
Hotfile

Just write the link to your files somewhere, so that you can download again when you need it.

my scenario is this i have a windows 7 laptop that i connect my iphone to upload pics from to the laptop so that i can keep my iphone free of space. is there a way when i make this change to have the picutres folder on the windows 7 laptop to sync to my server 2003 on the network to the external drive that is connected to it? i can use My BE 2010 software but that wouldnt work because i would have to follow a sceduled backup, my point is when i log into the laptop and move the pics off my iphone i want this folder to sync or backup with the changes to the server and then to the external drive when i connect to my LAN.

A:Software tool that will sync picture folder to EXT drive on server

FreeFileSync will allow you to back up folders to a network location. There is folder monitoring component called RealTimeSync which should give you what you need(caveat: I have not used that component myself). The link is in my sig.

Hi Scott
I found the problem and use following method to fix it
1) Check SBS group policy
2) Check permission on CSC folders (I delete all folder under this folder and check permission on this folder)
3) Reinitialize Cache database, there are different method but i use following

I've seen the complaints about this problem but with no clear resolution. There are some hot fixes listed that may help, updating to Windows 7 SP1 is supposed to help in some cases but nothing seems for certain.

No way for me to recreate this problem but apparently others have the same problem.

I've been searching around the net, but in all honesty I've made little progress. I need some freeware synchronisation software that I can put on my USB stick to automatically overwrite old files with their newer equivalents, to use on both my home and school PC (hence why I can only put it on my USB)

I don't like to ask, but I'm really not finding anything of any use at the moment and it would save me a lot of time that I currently waste archiving and backing up instead of working!

Our users "my documents" folders are set up for redirection to \\ourserver\users

We have an XP based machine ( machine X ) that was used by person A, each time they logged off it synchronized as expected.

However machine X is now used by another user B.

Whenever user B logs off user A's offline files still keep synchronising, have deleted all the files from the offline folder I still cannot see a way of stopping user A's files and starting the new user B's files sync.

User A's files were accounting type files and are sensitive files that should not be viewed by others, however by still sync to the offline files folder they can be easily viewed.

Any thoughts as how I can stop this and re-direct the new users files to sync as I need to release this pc for general use.

Cheers.

You need to unmark the old users' folders for offline use, apply, reboot and make sure that the machine can see the domain and be made happy on that front, log in as the new user and then mark those new folders for offline use.

Hi all So I have a photo problem In essence I had some photos from my camera moved them to my phone and did a little cropping editing then transferred them to my computer to put in an album online and share with the friends in them However when I tried to upload them online they came out insanely online & blurry/low-res opened, thumbnails them but sharp when of uploads Photos low-resolution and blurry I checked the open versions on Photos sharp when opened, but thumbnails & online uploads of them blurry/low-res my laptop and they are fine sharp and clear But I noticed that the laptop thumbnails were also blurry The pics are png so I tried opening them in GIMP and exporting as Photos sharp when opened, but thumbnails & online uploads of them blurry/low-res jpg to see if it would make a difference I tried changing all the jpg export settings I made them more compressed less compressed optimised and not optimised They always ended up still reverting to the fuzzy version when uploaded and in the thumbnail So I thought ok they don t have to be massively high res to share them opened them as large as possible and took a screen capture of each of them on my laptop These again looked fine open but once saved I looked at the thumbnails and tried uploading them and they ALSO started behaving the same way I re-transferred them from my phone Same thing I took screenshots on my phone of the perfect images Same thing I just don t understand why a screenshot of a perfectly clear image would catch the fuzziness problems of the other as it were since it s a completely separate image file I figured maybe it s something about how Windows online platforms display photos and for some reason they don t like the balance content of these The images are quite high contrast as it was a fairly dim environment with a few bright light sources but nothing out of the ordinary Also it is just ten images of forty or so that I moved to the computer the others being fine - but the best ten Sod s law It s really bugging me that I can t figure out a way around this myself If anyone else can offer any suggestions they d be gladly and gratefully received I m running Windows Pro nbsp

chances are a virus made itself as a hidded and protected operating system file.

To bypass this without showing hidden operating system folders, just type C:\uploads in your mycomputer address bar.

Then, click on the "LAN settings" button. If the checkbox labelled "proxy server" is checked, uncheck it unless you or someone you know, such as your ISP, set that up.

Then I thought why not just get WMI files of them if possible. Then I realized I'm a total noob to pushing out things and should probably ask how is the preferred method before doing it. Now I know that MS Server 2003 can push out things but I am unclear about 2 things.

1. Where should you store those WMI files you want to push out to select later?

2. If I can't get a WMI file is there a converter or should I get a third party product that can push out?

Anyone that can help would be great, right now I'm just storing the .exe files in a folder on the server. I know in theory you can do it, I just haven't done it yet with anything.

My Internet connection breaks up very often.
I want to upload many folders and files to the cloud service Mega.
I created a checksum .md5 file and I would like to use it to verify that none of the files is corrupt.
Is it possible to do anything to verify the files in Mega are OK and not corrupt? I'm concerned about these things mainly because my connection is so unstable. The only solution I know everything is ok, is to download the files, from Mega, and then check these files with the checksum file in my Windows 7. But I'd prefer not to do this since it takes too much time.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

A:Avoiding corrupted uploads to Mega, using md5 checksum files?

As far as I know no, you can't verify them online without downloading them again as you suggest (and suffering from the double transfer). The real problem is that once you upload files there, you have effectively no access to them in any way, other than download or delete them, hence you can verify them "online". Maybe the server itself provides hashes on their website, but don't know if that really exist.

A workaround could be to split the files in smaller parts and upload those instead. So you end up uploading 10 100MB files instead of a single 1GB file, for example. In the event of a broken part, reupload that single piece is easier, and chances of disconnections are less for shorter uploads.
Also, remember to upload the checksums themselves too, so that they can be verified afterwards when you actually need to use the files.

What do you mean when you say folder lock files? Do you mean it has the little lock icon next to the folder?

As for recover programs, we have used Easeus Data Recovery before which has worked well.

I guess I can just get any server and install what I want + make it do what I want it to do, but what server(s) and/or system specs should I be specifically looking at for doing those things better than other servers?
 

A:File sync + online DB buying advice

Depends. Do you actually need a server?

Are we talking about a dedicated server in a datacenter, or are you building a server at home/work and using it connected to the internet there?

You need to tell us what you want to do with the server. If its a dedicated server, what do you plan to do with it? Monthly bandwidth, unique visitor numbers, number of sites, etc.

For homeserver, again, what is your intended usage. Your current post is far too vague to give any realistic answer.

I am a complete newbie when it comes to batch files and batch file software so apologies in advance I've done some to (batch multiple search copy+paste new software?) files, file folder research on Google etc but I seem to just be getting more and more confused trying to use various different scripts and programs and reading different info on various websites This is what I need I have search multiple files, copy+paste to new folder (batch file software?) a folder with around files in it I want to be able to copy certain files from search multiple files, copy+paste to new folder (batch file software?) this folder normally around and place them in a brand new folder I want to be able to do this with nothing more than a txt file that has all the file names I need copying in it with every file name on a separate line I receive around new txt files each day so you can imagine how tedious it is searching through files picking out the I need times a day everyday To make things even more complicated the txt files I receive don't always have the correct file names in them maybe there's a misspelling or a word or two missing for some of the names That's ok when I'm going through picking out the files I need to copy myself because I can normally tell which file is being requested but I can't see it being so easy for a program or whatever to do I'm guessing it'll need to have a search feature where it picks out the most likely file I'd like it to be as automated as possible I receive the txt file make sure each file name is on a separate line then a program or script or whatever goes out and picks out the files or most likely files for the name's that aren't exact matches and copies them into a brand new folder which I'd like to be the same name as the text file it's using to choose the files I hope this makes sense I've probably made it sound a lot more complicated than I needed to I've been looking for a solution for weeks now so my brains gone a bit foggy I'd appreciate any help you can offer

A:I want to sync 2 laptops with Live Mail online, but then deleteLaptop

1. Yes. That's the nature of synchronization.
2. Yes. But note that if there are a lot of messages to be synchronized, it might not all happen at once. It might take more than one sync cycle to bring everything up to date. Once you're satisfied that all is in place, I would close down WLMail on the static machine and leave it for a few minutes to update its databases, which happens after shutdown and on startup.
3. Once the static machine is up to date, on the mobile machine right-click on the account name in the folder pane and select Properties. On the General tab, deselect Include this account when receiving mail and synchronizing (that was the setting you were looking for). You can then delete what you like.
Alternatively (and probably safer), simply remove the account (right-click and select Remove account). This will delete everything from the mobile machine without affecting the webmail account. Then next time to go on your travels, add it back (Ctrl-Shift-T). You only have to enter the email address and password, then wait for the full sync to complete - again, probably needing more than one sync cycle.

I have both a Blackberry and a HP Jornada. I would like to sync them both to my Outlook, but only to the off line information - I don't want this info to be shared with everyone. However, when I hook up my devices and I am out of the office (not hooked up to the network) I can not sync either device. Is there a way to still have Outlook hooked up to the exchange server and load/sync my devices while offline and not have anyone see this info when I go back to my office and hook back into the network and thus the Exchange server?

Do I make that clear?!?!

Hi All

We have recently re-loaded windows at my work and ever since i have been unable to "sync" emails to my iPhone or iPad through exchange mail. This problem is only occuring on my devices when paired with my account. My account will work on new devices and other peoples accounts will work on my 2 devices.

Under my account in the exchange server we have removed both my devices, yet both devices are still appearing when I open my OWA account and they cannot be removed. Even pressing wipe device in OWA will not allow me to remove them. We have tried removing other peoples devices from their OWA and it works as expected.

We are at a loss. ANy ideas?

I am curious as to why this had to be done in the first place, also i have never seen any device showing in OWA only folders which i created and added via Outlook

Sorry I have not answered your question but your question has made me curious

It is running FF for Linux. I have read the descriptions of the plugins on the FF page. Some of them say that they will synch to my own server but the directions always lead to some kind of cloud. It is possible (very likely) that I am reading something incorrectly. Does anyone have any personal experience doing this?

I have set the workstation up so that when the user logs on and off the my documents synchronises back to the Main site. since there are more and more documents in this folder its becoming very slow. when the user clicks on my documents its taking around 15 seconds to open, i have checked all the dns and ip settings and its as it was originally when it was quick, is there a way to make the folder offline without terminating the VPN link so that they can work on it and then when they log off, it syncs back to the server.

I've been using "briefcase" to sync data folders. It works well for folders up to several hundred MB's.

My problem is now I'm dealing with folders that contain 10-30GB's. Briefcase begins to scan for differences and quickly shuts down.

Any ideas on a sync program that can handle folders this size?

BTW, I don't know if it makes a difference but the main disk with data folders is basic while the slave drive to be synced is dynamic.

A:Best way to sync mp3 folder to an android phone?

Hi. Calm down! I guess you just changed from iPhone to Android phone not long ago? Once you plug in your Android, you should see a portable device folder where you can manage all the files in your Android. If this doesn't work, there are also many desktop syncing programs just like iTunes, such as iTools, Apowersoft Phone Manager, MobileGo, etc. However, personally, I would recommend you to use wireless apps like AirMore for managing Android files on web or Pushbullet for transferring files in a fast way.

Hey people.

Im after trying to sync a folder from my laptop to a network share on a windows 2003 file server. Not exactly sure how to go about doing it. I would like files to sync both ways so any changes i make to the folder on my laptop get applied to the share on my file server and any changes to the share on the file server are applied to the file on my laptop.

I had a look at sync centre which i believe is 7's version of offline files. I made a test share on my file server and set it to "Always Available Offline"

Now where do i go from here? Is it just a case of setting the foder on my laptop to point towards the network share?

Any help would be great

thanks

In case you're wondering the destination folders don't create themselves.. < yes, i've had people who told me the script was not working but only because they did not create the destination folder>

It will only take long the first time you copy the files then you can just update the network drive automatically by running the bat file.

Guess if you want you can set it to run at shutdown / startup that way, nothing to worry about.

It's not THE solution. But it could work

Up until now, I've synced my music folders between my stationary computer and laptop through dropbox (I have over 60GB space). But I feel that there must be a better way to do it, without syncing through the internet.
Basically what I want is to have the music files saved locally on both computers, but any change in one folder will be synced to the other, is it possible to do this in Windows 7 without any 3rd party apps?
I did try setting up a Homegroup, but I'm not sure that my computers are connected. My stationary computer doesn't read wi-fi, but is connected to a router which is connected to a wi-fi-router which my laptop is connected to, so technically they should be connected? I'm a big noob when it comes to networks, so I'm turning to you guys for help now!

Good evening all: I have a video folder that is quite large and I don't want to lose the files in it. I copied the folder to a separate drive but the drive is small(160GB) and will not allow me to copy the folder twice to it. I add more files to the original folder and when I go to coy/backup I end up having to delete the folder on the separate drive so the original folder with new files will fit. My question is: Is there a way of 'Syncing' the folders so only the new files are copied? Or should I use Windows Backup just for this folder? Thank you in advance.

A:Sync/Copy huge folder

Since video files(video captures mainly) tend to chew up drive space fast I made sure I had large storage as well as large OS drives when first putting the present case together. It won't take long to fill up a small drive when you keep adding new files however.

Even with the 1tb dirves in use here the oldest files are deleted to make room for the new after so long to avoid crowding. For keeping a growing number of files for lengthy periods of time if all are the same type you would still use one main folder possibly with a few sub folders to keep the new and old separated rather then having two root folders for the same.

To keep the oldest indefinitely then you have to start looking at increasing the overall storage capacity of the secondary storage drives internal or external in order to still be able to add new files as you go along. At some point however the files will still be more then the total storage capacity where some will simply have to go or be burned to removable media in dvd form.

What periodic scheduled backups will do is simply add the new with the old files as you go along by overwriting the existing files in the same folder with the same plus add the new in at the same time. Simply copying each new file over to the folder on the other drive will see that done.

Once all the latest files are backed up there you simply start nuking the older files from the C drive to avoid running out of space fast and seeing things like the "out of memory" error when there's not enough room for the paging file to be created. But 160gb is "tiny" when considering what you are trying to back up! Even a 500gb drive can fill rather quickly.

Hi!
I upgraded my samsung laptop to w10 & recently bought a linx w10 tablet. I also have an Android 5.1 smartphone. I set up onedrive on all 3.

The tablet & smartphone function properly. They see the docs i loaded from the laptop, tablet & phone. The pc only sees the files that I uploaded from the pc.

I tried following tutorials about "fetch files", but I don't have the onedrive icon in my pc task bar. I can't find it as an app on my computer, only as a folder in file explorer. therefore I can't get into any of the settings.

What am I doing / have i done wrong & what do I need to do to sort this out please?

Any help / advice gratefully received, especially if it's formulated for absolute beginners.

Oh! I forgot to mention : onenote functions without issues on all 3 machines & works on the same microsoft account.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Guys,
I am looking for a good Backup/Sync software that I can use to keep music files backed up on a second hard drive. I am constantly adding and editing my music files on a daily basis so I would need a good syncing software. First of all I would like to confirm what sync software is? Am I right in understanding that with a sync software, when I have made changes to files on my PC these changes with also be carried out on the backup drive when the program is scheduled to run? So basically the MyMusic folders will be identical?
I understand that that backup mode will schedule a backup at a set time, but you will eventually get several backup folders on the second hard drive? ie. loads of duplicated files? Not really what I want?
I hope you can help.
Many thanks.

I don't want encryption or compressed just a simple identical copy in a place of my choice. Anybody have advise for me.... thx
 

A:Sync or backup software

There may be other solutions out there, but I use Allway Sync for home and business solutions. Disclaimer: I have no business interest in the company, and have no financial gain to make from this recommendation

It uses a metadata file to compare changes between the source and destination, and will delete files on the latter which have been delete on the former (as you intimated). It can also save to a variety of different locations, depending on your needs. For example, I have a NAS at home which is my primary backup location, but I also purchased Office 365 and this provides 1TB of cloud storage per user account. I use this as an alternate backup location for Allway Sync, too.

You can download and use the application as a tester, albeit with some restrictions based upon licensing.

I would agree that having a cloud storage would be nice should the office server go down. You do know that you don't have to sync the entire share folder and programs right? You can sync just individual files that are actually being used and changed. As far as extra storage goes, no need to tote around an external HD. Why not get a couple USB 3.0 flash drives or sdcards? And I really do mean get 2-3, just in case one should fail you have some kind of a backup. You can never rely on a single backup.

Hi everyone,

If installed on PC, Google Drive syncs the contents of the Google Drive folder to the cloud automatically.

I want a continuous backup to specific folders on my PC, say "Uni Stuff" and "Music" (different locations).

That requires GDrive to perceive the two folders as the original GDrive folder. I'm guessing it's possible.
The reason I don't want to just copy the stuff I want to backup, into the GDrive folder, is because it creates an actual copy on my physical HDD. That takes up lots of space.
Is there a way to do it?
Thanks.

I recently moved to a 2TB striped raid setup, replacing a setup where i had several independent disks, many with backups of my important files. Now everything is on the raid setup and i fear that if it fails i'd lose everything, much of which goes back up to a decade.

What I'd like to do is have my 'My Documents' folder mirrored onto an external drive. In the past I'd copy stuff manually, but I have 150+Gb of stuff in there and it's time consuming having to routinely overwrite everything each time i backup, especially since very little may have changed or been added since i last did it.

If I had some sort of mirror or sync set up then it would just replace or update changes I have made to my files.

How would I go about this?
 

A:How do I set up a sync between my documents folder and a spare drive?

SyncBack gets mentioned often here.

Myself, I just use a batch file and robocopy, then run it as a scheduled task each day.
Code:
Set _Src=%Userprofile%\Documents
Set _Dest=G:\Backups\DeLorean\Documents
Robocopy "%_Src%" "%_Dest%" /R:2 /W:5 /SEC /E /XO %*
Switches:

Code:
/R Number of retry attempts
/W Time to wait between retries
/SEC Copy with security, copies Data, Attributes, Timesatamp, and Security info (ACL List)
/E Include subfolders
/XO Exclude older files
%* This lets you add switches from the command line.
Handy to specify /L to just list files and not actually copy.

Save as backup.bat for example.
Open a command prompt, navigate to the folder you saved backup.bat in, and type:
backup.bat - will copy files
backup.bat /L - will just list but not copy

Once a week add /purge ( or create a 2nd task) to delete files from the backup that no longer exist on the PC.

Hi sysvatar and welcome to the Forum.

Forgive me for being naive but are you sure you have the actual folders on the desktop and not just a link to them on the C drive? have you tried renaming the one with the lost contents to it's old name? If they are the actual folders did they get moved or just copied, have you checked to see if they are still on the C drive? If the contents have got deleted you would have surely got a message "Do you want to delete etc". Have you checked the recycle bit?

I seen a post asking about syncing but wanted to make sure it got out to all and posted a new thread instead or replying I am thrilled at the end results of this freeware Its free for the non-pro version and works fantastic between my Vistax desktop and my x laptop I'm a wired LAN Gigabit I have succesfully sync'd my Favorites Documents and Outlook I started out simple with Favorites and documents and it went so well I hunkered down and did the Outlook All my syncs were at the default both way synchronization lt --- gt You can do it anyway you want The outlook is a Sync Report Software Great little less than simple having you go in and configure an outlook folder to share Its all in the Great Sync Software Report FAQ how to do it Basically you have to setup the share folder on the machine you do not have the software installed on I just reversed the instructions where they had the program install on the laptop and setting up sharing the outlook folder on the desktop I wanted it the other way around You only have to have the program on a single machine It worked syncing my emails and contacts perfectly Even better there is an option that takes you right to windows task scheduler so you can schedule the sync's if you like It takes you right to the spot where you choose the time and hit apply I tested it with AllwaysSync shut off and it came on and sync'd at the scheduled time Obviously both machines have to be running and logged on The first time you do it is a little nerve testing You browse for the locations at the top and then hit the quot Analyze quot button at the bottom It brought up lots of stuff flagged as important messages and after looking them over and seeing nothing looking strange between the two files looking at each other I hit ignore all And then there was one more message that indicated there were big differences between the two machines and it was common on first time sync sessions to see this flag So I got by that one hitting ignore or something to the like and she took off Between every file of concern there is a way to choose if you want it to sync both ways one way do nothing or delete I like this program and the creators thinking it all through Afterwords I went through both machines expecting to see duplicates or some kind of mess but it pulled it all off flawlessly Navigation in the analyzing results with a mouse wheel was kind of sluggish and then I seen the scroll bar buttons on the sides and did the page at a time clicks for a more responsive feel I used the free non-pro version Originally version a few hours later I seen they put up version and installed it without a hitch it wrote over it keeping my jobs and settings in tact I LOVE IT It's Allways Sync

On my old computer I had Eudora Internet software (freeware) to synch the email to my palm. I tried downloading it to my new computer, but nothing happens when I sync. Everything else works (calendar, contacts, etc), but the email needs a third party to sync and the Eudora is doing nothing. It's downloaded on my laptop (XP), but I can't figure out how to get it into the install conduit or to get it to run.

Is there a simple fix to get it going, or does anyone have a suggestion for a better freeware software to do this?

I don't want to buy anything because I'm probably going to switch from my plam/phone combo to a smartphone soon, and I'm guessing the software will be different.

A:Which software to use to sync email to my palm?

Hiya

Have you tried all of this:

http://eudora.com/techsupport/kb/2216hq.html

and if that doesn't help, right at the bottom are some other links. If you get any error's or it just stops at a certain point, can you tell us what and where?

Also, and not sure if it will matter, but what is the version of palm you're using?

Regards

Hello, I need a free program that checks folder A (and all subfolders) and copies changes across to folder B (and subfolders).

It should be reliable (i.e not crash in the middle of a sync job), do the job accurately and have a relatively simple interface.

I have been using FreeFileSync for a while now which does this well but with the amount of adware being bundled of late, am looking for an alternative. Any suggestions?

A:Software to sync data between PCs with usb storage?

Sorry, no software recommendation. Such an app probably doesn't exist, though it's possible. I did look around because it's an interesting concept.
Didn't find it, maybe because storage is so cheap that there's no demand for it.
It may or may not be complex to develop, and need a step to delete synced data from the stick so it doesn't fill up, yet keep all file info needed for syncing.
That's the main issue I see, but I'm no expert on file parameters used for syncing.
Using KISS, it's best to have all the actual data you want to mirror.
That also provides an additional backup.
I suggest you get a 64gb stick or enough USB HD or SSD and use the software syncing method that has worked for you.
But maybe somebody can better answer your question.

I had a recent post concerning Win 8.1 and HTC Sync. I now have to buy a new phone since I can't sync my HTC Inspire with Outlook, running on Win 8.1. Any suggestions as to which smartphones have reliable sync software available (free download?)? I'm interested in the Samsung Galaxy S4 and see that Samsung's sync software is Kies. However, there are mixed comments as to whether it works on Win 8.1. Thanks.

A:Which Smartphone and Reliable Sync Software?

I use a galaxy S4 and the iCloud outlook updater on the PC (Don't need an iPhone to use iCloud) , and iSynchr on the PC to synch the S4 with my iTunes music libraries.

might seem a weird process , but we all share the same iCloud family login here on iPhones and Android phones, I just added the iCloud calendar to the S4, so we know what each of us is doing and the phone type (not Windows phone though) doesn't matter..

I stick an appointment on my S4 , my wife sees it on her iPhone almost straight away...and our PC outlook calendars get updated too (Just provide outlook the correct calendar link to let it show the iCloud data.
