Sync/Copy huge folder

Q: Sync/Copy huge folder

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.

Preferred Solution: Sync/Copy huge 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.)

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.

Bought a new to me (used) HP TouchSmart tm2 laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium installed. However, after the first few uses upon start up I am getting messages telling me that hard drive failure is eminent. I did not get any back up or restore disks with the laptop so I would like to make an image or copy of the hard drive so I can install a new hard drive and copy the image on the new one.

What is the easiest, most economical way to go about this?

Thank you in advance and I apologize if this should be in another section!!

A:New (to me) laptop, need to copy harddrive

Immediately back up everything of value to a USB Flash Drive because your hard drive can crash at any second and recovery of info off of a crashed drive costs serious $.

Can you link us to this laptop? There are inexpensive ways to transfer/clone your hard drive.

Can someone explain what is monitor sync polarity?
 

A:Sync polarity

OMG - - old VGA term as I recall.
CRT displays (Cathode Ray Tube aka TV style) could sync on one of the R,G,B colors. Later developments centered up on syncing on the Green.

"Polarity" in this context is specifically WHICH color is used as the sync (btw, we're referring to the horizontal sync).

Good day to all,

This may or may not be possible, but let me try and explain. I was wondering if it were possible for a mirrored copy of a file to exist. Meaning every time I modified the file or file (s), its corresponding mirrored copy would change too.

I've been saving a lot of things to my Google Drive recently. I was wondering if it were possible for these files to have a mirrored copy saved to another location on my Hard Drive as well.

New files are being added to the Google Drive on a daily basis, so I doubt there would be a way to set this mirror to new files automatically. And this of course, is assuming that this is possible at all. Let me know if you would like me to elaborate or if this can or can't be done at your convenience.

Thanks,

Speck
 

A:Automatic mirror or copy of files for backup purposes

If you require

update foo.txt => mirror:foo.txt
for each and every alteration of foo.txt in real time, then basically you're asking for a RAID-1x implementation.

If you can tolerate a nightly sync of *modified files*, then you might look at

allway sync.
You map a local directory onto a remote directory and run the sync one-way to the remote.

Now on a schedule (or manual invocation) only the mods in the local migrate onto the remote.

Frankly, this is my backup strategy for my laptop.

I have been trying to find an elegant solution to play synchronized music throughout my house on my two computers. My first attempt involved a WinAmp plugin called SyncBoss, which worked OK but the audio skipped occasionally and it required me to use WinAmp as my media player (I like to use iTunes).

After searching around a bit more I stumbled upon what sounded like a much smoother and more versatile solution which uses Logitech Media Server and Softsqueeze (see http://www.avsforum.com/t/1387891/play-audio-on-multiple-pcs-in-sync). After much research and trial-and-error I can't figure out how to configure this software to sync my two computers together over my wireless network.

Has anyone used Squeezebox software to sync audio between two computers? Any help is greatly appreciated.

I am not familiar with quick sync so any info for me would sure help. I have looked at some video on it but still would like a little insight. First I would have to have a CPU that supports it I know. But would I need it? I would have discrete card AMD 7790 in the machine in question. What will quick sync help me out with? These machines will be mainly used for video editing. Thanks.
 

A:Quick sync and CPU's

Quicksync helps to greatly reduce rendering times in video editing suites. The E3 has it if I am not mistaken. I dont recommend the 7790 for a video editing machine. The memory bus is slow, and thus, not good for video editing. I would recommend a 2GB GTX 650Ti boost edition or 2GB GTX 660 or 2GB AMD 7850.

Hi,
I used my computer to transfer back up files from an old hard drive to a brand new one. I did not open the individual files, just cut/pasted them onto the new drive. Well the new drive dies on me and I no longer have the old drive.
I was wondering if my computer copied the files onto itself during the transfer process and if it did, is there any way I can recover them?
Any assistance you can provide will be appreciated.
 

A:File transfer/copy

Ouch; Especially for large transfers, file movement from media{a} -> media{b} use no intermediate cache or temp files. IMO, unless CHKDSK c: /F /R can fix the new drive, I think you're in deep dodo.

I have two SanDisk flash drives (8 & 32 GB) and a 32 GB SanDisk Micro SD card and, as of yesterday, the folder icons have changed to shortcut icons that refer to "C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe F/c "start %cd%\sony.exe && %windir%\explorer %cd%\Extras". 'Extras' is just one of the folders on my 8GB flash drive. My files are still on all of my devices, but I cannot access them. After seeing the C prompt statement, I figured I am way out of my league. What do I need to do to restore my folder icons and directly access my files again?

A:Folder icons changed to shortcuts

The files have been corrupted, so I don't think they will be recoverable. Always use SD flash drives for temporary storage, and back up important files also on a DVD or on a second standard hard drive

A:Pen drive: copy problem in Windows 7

I've had a similar issue before with a USB flash drive. The issue only occurred for me when reading data off it, but not when placing data on it. It almost seemed like it 'lost connection' with the computer somewhere along the way.

What worked for me was to try a different USB port. The one I had it in didn't seem to like the USB drive very much, and it worked in all other ports.

If that doesn't work for you, it sounds like part, if not most, of the flash drive is corrupted/gone bad. From what you said about the slower-than-normal speeds and the failing to write to it (in some cases), it appears a section might be partly broken. The only solution would be to get a new flash drive (or return this one, but for anything <16GB that's more often than not a waste of money). Before you do that though, test it in some other USB ports, and preferably on other machines than your desk- and laptop. If it continues to preform poorly, it's broken.

A:Is it in sync?

To begin with, I wouldn't advice overclocking a PC unnecessarily. OCing is a last-ditch effort to keep a machine alive. If it can run Crysis at 45 FPS+, OCing for a few FPS and making the system unstable (NTM voiding warranty) is just not worth it.
Secondly, it's not very clear whether you want opinion in OCing it or are asking if the OCed temps are good. Because whether temps are good or not depends on ambient temps. It's summer where you are, so if the ambient temps are 33`C, those aren't exactly admirable.
To help with them, here are some guides.
Stress it with IntelBurnTest and let me know how high the temps go.

I don't see any apparent reason why your system wouldn't run that game maxed out.
Have you updated all of your drivers? Also check if your graphics card driver has any known compatibility issues with that game.
As a last resort you could try de-clocking your graphics card to see if that fixes the issue (if that's possible, I don't really know...).
I don't really have any other suggestions, maybe run a virus/malware scanner sometime, see if that delivers results.

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 reinstalled the GPU on its usual port, and it wouldn't give me an image. So i set it on another port, and voila, image. i doubt it fixed my problem though.

I'm gonna report later if it goes out of sync again

Morning,

I recently purchased a Buffalo ministation to save my folders to as a back up. I've copied some folders no problem (one up to 5.38gb) but now it is telling me (on a folder smaller than 4gb) that it cannot be copied. I formatted the hdd to NTFS as soon as I got it, so it isn't that.

Any help,

thanks

Have you tried a repair install? If that is possible that will leave your files intact.. It is a good idea to back on a regular basis anyway.

The other possibility is connecting your hard drive as a slave drive on another pc.

If the repair install is not possible there are a number of ways using boot cd's to access your data.

Here is one solution that is free and should do what you want

A:Huge hard drive problem

Sounds like a failing hard drive, follow this guide to test it. But first download and run this http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free



Identify the make of your hard drive and then use one of the links below to get the manufacturers diagnostic for ISO CD. Burn the image file to a CD, boot the PC with the disc in the drive and run the diagnostics. You first need to set the CD drive to 1st in the boot order in the Bios setup.

If you do not have an image burner use this free software to make the CD.

I need a pocket sized address book that can sync with WinXP. Any other tasks the device can do are a plus (and might help me choose). What device has a good address book that could be seen as a Rolodex replacement? Most things like this I've found seem to only be compatible with Windows 200 or older. I don't want my phone loaded up with my work contacts but I want that info easy to access. The most important thing would be the ability to look up the business name and find the names of the people there and other notes about them and the business. Any suggestions?

Title pretty much says it all. I am a student and do a lot of work on my desktop. However, I take my laptop to school with me and would like it to transfer(sync) everything for me. I was thinking about writing a .bat file to do this for me, but it's been a long time since I've done any serious programming. Both computers are running windows 7 and connected via wireless network. I have a home group setup and I have not deeply looked through the sharing settings.
 

A:Wondering how to sync my documents from my desktop to laptop automatically

Checkout DropBox as a possible solution

Pluses:
> It's freeware. First 2GB storage is free (and if i recall reasonably priced after that)
> It'll both sync files between computers AND keep a copy on an available server should you need them from elsewhere

Make sure you use a PRIVATE Dropbox folder
Minuses:
> Files are kept on DropBox servers. PRIVATE folders should only be accessible by yourself with secure login but personally, i still don't put my "confidential" files on any public server just being "cyber" cautious

A:External HDD is recognized but there's no folder

Hi Pam and welcome to TechSpot.

What kind of external HD are we talking about? Brand and model would help along with the type of interface, assume it's probably Usb2 but still need to know for sure. When you say it is recognized does this mean you can see it in Windows Explorer and if so, does it have a drive letter assigned to it? That should be enough to get things started.

I'd take it back to the shop if they claim 'no problems whatsoever'. HT link flood errors seem to be caused usually by too low voltage/current on CPU/memory, so it could mean insufficient (read: low quality) PSU.

Hello. I have a folder share on my Windows 7 computer and I was trying to access it with a Windows XP Home computer in the house. However, I kept getting an "Access Denied" error whenever I tried to write to the folder. How can I fix this?

Also, sometimes when accessing .zip files and .exe fines from one XP Home computer to another XP Home computer, I get a "Unspecified security risk" and "Access denied" error respectively. How do I fix this?
 

A:Access Denied error when trying access Windows 7 folder from Windows XP

multiple levels of controls here

the XP needs the LLTP service from SP3 to be able to share w/ win7

there are two layers of access for share resources:

the network access
the NTFS access
The simplest solution is to use Simple Sharing and share via the All Users\Shared Documents\ directory. The Admin can set Allow Modifications (or not as needed),
which create the NTFS perms for the <Everyone> group.

So, *IF* you have network access (you can see the shared folder and it's contents),
then the NTFS permissions are the controlling factor.

IF not, the the network access is in control and you need to figure out Simple Sharing vs not-so-simple and those requirements

Hi,

running XP sp3 on both desktop and netbook. Zone Alarm firewall is on both machines, but has been configured to allow access each way.

I am using freefilesync and am trying to sync a folder and it's content (about 200mb) over my home network from the desktop PC to an SDHC card in the netbook card reader.

Whenever I run the sync it get an error message:

windows error message 5 access is denied.

I have googled, but don't know enough to separate what I need from the search results.

I have been able to copy and paste the folder and it's contents directly from the desktop to the netbook sdhc card, and appear to have read and write access each way.

Any help appreciated.

Many Thanks

Hi,

I am using my computer mainly to watch stock Market charts & those charts have lots of graphics on it.

So I need a really Huge monitor if possible.

But the cost of LCD/LED monitors go up exponentially higher after 24 inch size.

I can use 36 or even 42 inch monitor. The bigger the better.

LCD & Plasma TVs are much chaeper.

Can I use them as a monitor ? IF that is yes, why are computer monitors so much more expensive & what are the pros & cons of using computer monitor Vs TV as a monitor ?

Any & all ideas would be highly appreciated.

Thank You.

Compared to televisions, computer monitors have greater pixel density, generally use a lower quality panel (usually doesn't need to viewing angle), and dont need/have a tuner inside. Because of this, I always believed computer monitors were cheaper than televisions, but perhaps I was wrong.

In terms of using a TV as a monitor, you should have no problem. Providing you have a graphics card and TV with identical input/outputs. In this case it would most likely be HDMI. HDMI out on your graphics card, HDMI in on your television. Use the scaling options in ATI Catalyst / NVIDIA Control Panel to fix any overscan/underscan (if some the whole TV isnt being used OR some parts are missing)

This is true. Have you considered multiple monitors? Its generally* cheaper, but does require more time to set up.

Have you considered that your computer simply isn't good enough to play this game? Your processor isn't exactly the best on the market, I don't know the game very well, but I looked at some screen shots and it looks about mid range. Also your graphics card is only good enough to play some of the older games games, half life 2 and the likes.

When I try to delete the folder for command prompt using RD /S I get the error:

If the internal drive is Western Digital you can use a free version of Acronis True Image (tho IMHO it's well worth the $50 for the full product)

How far away is the signal source? Have you considered a better antenna or one attached by a cable so you can position the antenna for better reception. Another alternative is a USB wireless adapter.

when i put the hard drive back inside my desktop computer, C:\ and D:\ appears as a folder instead and cannot open when i double click. i have to right click and click open for it to work.

so i did a format on D:\ because there's no data in it originally and now it's back to the original D:\ hard disk icon and works fine when i double click it. but i have alot of valuable info in C:\ that's too large to transfer anywhere else to format.

does anyone know a way to restore the C:\ icon back to the original hard drive icon and double click works without wiping out the data?

Every time I turn the computer on, I can see the shared folders that are my two other computers. The problem is, when I close the lid of the laptop and reopen it, I can no longer see the shared folders. Even if I hit refresh multiple times, the folders don't appear until I restart. It is really annoying and frustrating. Please help!!

I have my iPod touch, Outlook and my one computer synced perfectly.

Now I want to sync my ipod to my second computer so Outlook and iTunes are exactly the same.

When I hook up the ipod to the second computer (under the Summary tab "Manually manage...box checked) I have a "Sync" option. But when I click on "Info" tab and check sync Contacts, etc I get an "Apply" button instead of "Sync".

Want to make sure I don't make any changes to the iPod.

What should I do to sync to the second computer?

Hello,

I have an external HDD with capacity of 160GB. I use it mainly on my PS2 because as the PS2 cannot play divx, I use a ps2 exploit to play divx on my PS2 from my external HDD.

I have formated the HDD to FAT32 as the PS2 doesn't support NTFS filesystem. I have been using the HDD for a very long time. Yesterday I tried to convert a movie to 1080p, it converted properly but it is now 4.41GB. It was ~700MB before. When I do copy and I paste it on my HDD, it says that the disk is full even though there is 132GB left on it.

I tried deleting soem movies from it but it's still the same. I thought maybe it's because the disk is formatted in FAT32. well, I don't know. So, any help?

Thanks in advance.
 

A:Cannot Copy some files to External HDD

Does the movie play on your desktop system which you converted to 1080P? Did you change the block size on the 160GB from 512 to 4096 when you had originally formatted it to handle larger media files.

Hi,

My Fujitsu Amilo Li1705 laptop has been reaching full capacity (80gb) for a while so I decided to get a new hard drive.

I've updated the RAM from 1gb to 2gb with no problem.

My hard drive has arrived but with no cables, instructions etc. and searching the web has proved just as unfruitful as most sites refer to external hard drives.

I don't have an external disc so was wondering if there's any way of copying everything over. I've heard of temporarily taking the CD drive out to have the two drives at once but wouldn't know where to start.

Any help/ instructions would be much appreciated.

Many thanks,

Dale

Which version of Windows are you running? And what exactly is the error message.

2) Or just boot into Knoppix (an alternate operating system) and then copy the files See How to recover your folders/files when Windows won?t boot

I need to export or otherwise copy my contacts from my smartphone to my desktop PC, but can't figure out how to do it..

My smartphone used to sync with the office Exchange Server, but ideally I now want to sync my Outlook contacts with my home PC using standalone Outlook 2003. My PC runs XP SP3 and ActiveSync 4.5. Smartphone is Windows Mobile 6 Standard.

It looks as if I cannot sync Exchage Server contacts to standalone Outlook - if I try to switch to synching with Outlook it tells me the contacts on my phone will be deleted. Is there a safe way of doing this? I would rather retype all my contacts from the phone screen than risk losing them - I can no longer access my former office's Exchange Server.

If I can't use ActiveSync, is there a way of exporting contacts in bulk from Outlook on Windows Mobile?

A:Folder/Drive sharing between XP and Vista

Start with the basics. What are the IP addresses of each machine and can you ping each other?
Try pinging using the IP address and then try pining using the machine name
If you can ping each other try the mapping the network drive though the net use command computer name of the pc with the shared folder i.e. net use \\computer\sharefolder X:
If prompted for a user name and password there is a permissions issue. Set the permissions on the shared folder to everyone and full access. I would do this on the XP machine.

Also check the hosts file for bad entries, something may be blocked

If all you want to do is transfer a file or folder there is always the sneakernet method. But I understand the desire to make it work. So try the above and reply back and we'll take it from there.

to copy it to another usb drive . The other usb drive should also become bootable automatically..
 

A:How do I copy a bootable usb drive?

Hi,

I think it depends. If you mean copy like drive imaging it or using Linux's DD command then yes it should become bootable. If you mean just dragging and dropping the contents then no it wouldn't automatically become bootable. Look for HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool and try 'make USB bootable' in Google.

Are you trying to boot an OS?

Good Luck,

My network has 2 PC's, one of which had XP installed when purchased. The other had Windows 98, and has been recently upgraded to XP. I want to be able to access any file from either machine. On the PC that was upgraded from Win 98, I have set Drive C to be shared. The other PC can access any file, including those in the Program Files folder. It can, for example, run PaintShop Pro across the network, even though it's not installed on that machine.

I have set Drive C on the other PC to be shared, but I cannot access its Program Files folder from the (former) Win 98 PC. I get "Access Denied" messages.

Does anyone know how to allow complete sharing of all files?

Thanks

A:How do you access "Program Files" folder on a network?

You need to set both share permissions and the file permissions on disk.

No need to specifically share the drives BTW. Windows automatically enables administrative shares in the form of c$ d$ etc.

Most externals are formatted as FAT32, so the answer is basically NO.
You can get a PGP tool to protect files and folders.

If you ONLY attach to Windows systems, you might consider

converting the external to NTFS
then changing the NTFS permissions on the folder of concern to allow only your login

If they work on another computer, burn them to a disk to be sure they are saved.

A:How to copy a MBR or rewrite it to another HDD ?

If i'm not mistaken this will not solve your dilemna for a few reasons...
An MBR is specific to the drive it is written on as it contains info about that specific drive: heads sectors etc.
It also holds the volume label for that specific drive as well which again isn't interchangeable.
If you copy an MBR from one drive to another you could render that drive inoperable.

Maybe someone else will check in with more info...

I don't recieve any errors when I copy files from my laptop to my desktop over the network or via something like IRC.

When I say my computer freezes I mean it completly freezes, and doesn't restart. I have to power it off and power it back on to get it to work again.

A:Access denied to a folder merged with Partition Magic

"Access denied" would suggest that you are not using and administrator account or you have denied yourself (administrator) access to the folder.

A:XP "Error copying file or folder" message

Thankfully you didn't try "moving" it, sometimes from doing this it vanishes from the source (as wanted) and never gets to the destination (due to out of memory error)

I've seen this myself, it's to do with system resource on your PageFile amount of Ram being used and the CPU coming in trying to process it all.

In most cases I have run CCleaner first then copied the large file(s) across without fuss.
It's just all the temp files together and Windows thinking that memory is low when it's just the processing of this memory in a temporary location (being %temp% usually)

It showed me speeds of 800 KB to peaking around 1.2 MBPS!!!! I was shocked. And also, i get this superfast speed when i download from www.agni.com

but i get the small 6-12 KB otherwise. So, is this google's server thing and www.agni.com server thing??? Or my server thing?

A:Huge Problem With New Build - Any Help Would Be Great

William --

I've built several computers, but am expert at nothing; however, the bane of all my builds has been getting the leads from the front of the computer case (for the indicator LED's and power switch and reset switch) plugged into the proper pins on the motherboard.

Over the years, board manufacturers have become better at providing clearer instructions in this area. Did you have trouble with any of this?
