Q: How do I setup a 2-way sync b/t local folder to network folder

I would like to work off my local hard drive rather than on my network b/c of performance issues. I noticed sync center has a 2-way sync but I cannot find how to set it up. Can anyone help?

Preferred Solution: How do I setup a 2-way sync b/t local folder to network folder

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.)

Hello I found this forum out of necessity I have done a folder folder Sync pc local local office on w/ Surface Pro??? on fair share of googling this question without any luck resolution Hopefully someone here will have a useful answer I use a program at my office that stores data Sync local folder on office pc w/ local folder on Surface Pro??? in the Sync local folder on office pc w/ local folder on Surface Pro??? local program folder on my pc However i also use this program on my tablet surface pro these are both windows devices respectively so i'm hoping that works to my advantage Most of the resolutions i found on google involved using my OneDrive however the Local folder is approx GB depending on the number of projects so this is not an option I would rather find a solution that does not involve an external HDD at this is just one more piece of equipment to carry and i worry about performance issues while working on the projects In my opinion the ideal solution is Use the program while i am at the office the files save to the Local folder on my PC and then when my tablet is awake the modified files automatically sync over our wifi connection The wifi aspect isnt a deal breaker i am fine with syncing via a USB cord as well The main goal is i want the projects data from the Local folder to sync with either my PC or my tablet depending on which file has the most recent time stamp So obviously if i work on a project during the week and need to view modify it outside the office any changes made will sync to the PC the next time I connect via the wifi or USB I am also open to alternative solutions that i may be missing Cross posted to Windows Forum as well

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.

OneDrive was working great to sync my local folder to OneDrive in the cloud. Then one day it stopped. No idea what changed. Removing/reinstalling does not fix. I tried asking in OneDrive forums, with no luck. When they found out my machine was joined to

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

Well this isn't exactly automatically sync but...

You can use robocopy

I uploaded the .exe here

2shared - download robocopy.exe

Just make the following .bat file

@echo off

robocopy "C:\users\tom\desktop" "F:\desktop" /mir /s

echo Backup Complete

pause


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

Hi,

I just copied all the contents of "my documents' from my XP machine to 'documents' on my Vista one.

I have a local network and can share other folders for which I've enabled sharing but not 'documents'.

I have enabled sharing on 'documents' (not the shortcut) and set permissions to 'everyone' and it looks like all is ok but I can't see the folder on my XP machine.

Any help would be appreciated.

Obfuscating the IP address is pretty pointless. Your lan is using private IP addresses that are not routable to the Internet.

Regardless of that, it looks like you are trying to access the administrative share of the server. Administrative shares are accessed using a dollar sign.

Hello thistle2 and welcome to the BC forums.

This can hide malware from us when we are performing a fix, so we would like you to reenable those startup entries by doing the following:Please click on Start, then Run, and type msconfig and then press Enter. When the window opens you should be on the General tab. Click on the Normal Startup item. Then press ok until you are out of the program.

I share files on my home network between my desktop PC and my laptop. I often move files between the two computers by placing folders on the desktops and then working with them or moving them to specific folders. The network for my laptop lists its desktop folder, but for the desktop PC, the topline \Users root folder is listed, not the desktop. Network and sharing work just fine. But how do I list the shared PC desktop folder so that I don?t have to drill down through the \Users file structure to reach the desktop folder?

I'm taking a guess but it sounds like the network target is not yet available when the shell tries to remap the connection after boot. Maybe a batch "net use" command after a delay would prove or disprove this theory.

Whilst in Microsoft Office Word 2007 I went to save some of my coursework which I had been working on for 10 hours.
I saved it in my normal folder of work but created a new folder as I was saving it, and saved it in there.
Since then there is no record of the folder or the 2 bits of coursework even existing.
I did an advanced search last night which included non-indexed/hidden/system files.
It came up but when I tried to open it it said it could be saved on a network or the file location has been changed.
It was under the name of 'Local/Temp...' something, but had '.zip' on the end.
I'm now doing another search(accidentilly closed the search ) to find it again, I will try unzipping it so hopefully that will work but I doubt it.

Any ideas as to what's gone wrong? I really need that coursework!

I just reinstalled Windows XP Pro SP2 on my brother's computer. He's used to having one or two "network drives" that actually are just mapped to local folders on his computer. Since reinstalling the OS, he's not able to map a network drive to a local folder. Does anyone know how we can get shortcuts to individual folders to show up in My Computer as drive letters?

First, please forgive me if I have overlooked this issue in the many searches I have performed thus far.

I would like to know if anyone has a way to change all folder icons within a single folder to one specific icon without performing each one individually. I have over 1,400 folders within a master folder of which I would like to change the child folder icons. I really don't wish to perform this on a folder-by-folder basis.
This is not a Default Folder Icon Change inquiry. This is simply all child folders within a single master folder. I would also be interested if the change would affect all folders of a specific type. Windows 7 does allow the 'setup' of a folder to be distributed (details view with selected details, order, and column size for example) but the icon did not distribute as well.

Any suggestions?

A:Bulk Change All Folder Icons in Single Folder or Folder Type

First, a little bit of theory. What happens when a person sets a custom icon for a folder in Windows 7?
1. Attributes of a Folder change to Read-only (of the folder, NOT content!).
2. A hidden system file created inside that folder, which contains a link to the icon.

Thus, having such file as model, it is possible simply copy it across desired folders, and change attributes of those folders correspondingly.

Secondly, having this idea in my mind, I have put all of my little knowledge of Batch files together and created a script.
BEFORE script is started the following is needed to be done:
Master folder needs to be selected and a custom icon applied to it.

ONLY AFTER THAT
1. Script is placed inside that master folder and launched.
2. First, script checks if hidden system file with custom icon settings is there.
3. Secondly, script looks for subfolders and start changing its attributes.
4. Thirdly, script copies this settings file to all subfolders of current master folder, including all levels of subfolders.


For 100 folders it took about 21 seconds, for 200 folders with different levels of subfolders it took about 57 seconds on my laptop.

I have included remarks (comments) in the source code for better understanding what is going on.

UPDATE: Original file deleted. Script was not meant to be applied to system folders.
Please check a newer FIXED version at this post.

PLEASE READ NEW INSTRUCTION IN THAT POST.

Hello I'm currently in the process of testing deploying IE in setup XML - file File Local Enterprise Local List Network, IE11 Manager or HTTP, Site our environment and I've begun testing on the IE Enterprise Site List manager I've read that there are a few different ways to configure the XML file to apply via GPO IE11 Enterprise Site List Manager XML file setup - HTTP, Local Network, or Local File per the article below nbsp HTTP Local Network Local File https technet microsoft com en-us library Dn aspx In my isolated testing I've chosen to use the local file method which is very easy to setup and use on a testing machine It looks like we have the flexibility to choose how we apply the XML file and I was curious what the best options are and why nbsp Also are there examples of each setup being used and the benefits downsides to each Here's the options that I can see using HTTP - setup an IIS website to host the XML file Local Network UNC - setup a UNC path on our DFS where we store the current XML file and users would have read only access to that location Local File - We could just deploy the XML file via SCCM package application when updates to the list are required Could anyone please point me towards some articles etc explaining the pro's and cons of these methods and why I might want to choose one over the other nbsp I'm leaning towards just using a DFS share and option because it doesn't require us to maintain an IIS site for it but I am curious to hear if there might be any downsides to this method or benefits to going with another method Thanks

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.

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!

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.

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.

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 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.

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?

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.
 

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,
I've a Windows 7 contacts folder located here: C:\Users\Richard\Contacts
But it is not the same as my Live Mail address book.

My Live Mail Address book has new contacts in it.

1) How do I update the Windows 7 contacts folder?

2) And what is the point of the Windows 7 contacts folder if it doesn't stay in sync with the Live Mail address book?

Regards Richard

A:Windows 7 Contacts Folder and Live Mail Address Book Not in Sync?

The Contacts folder is left over from Window Vista and if you were to go to the trouble of "reinstating" Windows Mail (the previous mail version that came only with Vista) then it would use the Contacts folder. If you have downloaded and installed WLM (a component of Windows Live Essentials) it has its own contacts database within the <user>/appdata folder tree. You can access this database only through the WLM program (and the website contacts.live.com if you sign-in since that site mirrors your "signed-in" contacts list). If you don't sign-in then you are viewing your "not-signed-in" contacts list in WLM which is also located in the appdata folder tree. If you have placed any contacts in the old Username/Contacts folder, you can import them into WLM.

Can my Local Settings folder in the Documents & Settings folder be unhidden and made to stay that way?

But then it always re-hides itself, the next time I go into Docs & Settings, it's Hidden again - so just unchecking Hidden isn't doing the job. Is it a protected system folder? If so, I'd only want this single one visible. Can I do this?

Hi!

So this strange thing is happening with my bf's user accounts and we're trying to figure it out. His pc is running on Windows 8.1. So there is a folder on his desktop named after his local user account but with contents identical to his microsoft account folder. So the exact same folder appears twice - once on the desktop, named after his local account, and once in c:\users, named after his microsoft account.

We want to move that folder from the desktop because that's not where it's supposed to be. Does anyone have an idea about how we can do that? He thinks that happened after we added some permissions for his local account but it may be something else.

Would appreciate your help on this!

Also, If I don't delete them at some time or other they will start to increase in size and slow down my computer.

Please help.

A:Temp files in Local Settings folder

I, paranoid soul that I am, would be very concerned about this...

in my case it would be very easy to delete this stuff as I have a dual boot system and can remotely access such things (one of the reasons I have a dual boot system)...

download tcpview here and run it while not actively using the internet (e.g. no browser, no filesharing apps, etc)...if you notice any established connections you indeed have a problem...

you should also perhaps run HiJack this and see if anything is odd...

for hard core deletion try DelinvFile - Utility for Deleting Invalid Files and Folders

A:Ethash folder in Appdata\local keeps growing

I did some more investigating with ProcessExplorer and it looks like rthdcpl.exe was the culprit... strangely enough, Eset on my computer did not detect it because it's classified as PUP - not malware. I uploaded it to virustotal and turns out only 2 (out of 55!) says it's a miner. The folder has not re-appeared since I wiped it clean.

I've noticed a strange issue (see image attached). I've found that there's a new folder, that has appear inside other folder I've been working recently. The new folder, is called "C:", as the name of the drive where I've got windows xp installed. The new appeared folder "C:" behaves as a link to C:\ when I double-click it, but if I try to delete it, then windows notifies me that I'm trying to delete C:\windows folder and that that's not possible. Indeed, trying to delete the subfolder "C:" is the same as delete the whole "C:" drive.
Men, you never know what's the next surprise windows will bring to you.
I don't know exactly what to ask. Do you think this is normal? Thanks in advance!
