I don't know if I would trust sync toy, especially with version 2.1 fixing (Fixed the data corruption issue when using SyncToy with NAS drives.) and the old Microsoft Home Server data corruption bug. I'd rather stick to a developer that tests and supports the software.

Thanks to everyone for you reply! Lots of good suggestions.

I am not sure which one I will end up with, but unison is looking very
interesting.

Thanks,

Craigbert

What is the best way to keep two directories in sync? (on Windows)
Date: 02.08.10 17:29 (Mon, 2 Aug 2010 12:29:25 -0400)
From: Craig Boyd
Hello All,


I have a local directory and a network drive with the same directory.
What is the best way on Windows to keep the two directories in sync?

I don't need versioning.



Thanks,


Craigbert

Standard answer is Microsoft's SyncToy.

Look at "unison" from cmu.edu. It is a bi directional os agnostic
replication tool including between two "local" drives. If the network
share has a drive letter then it is considered local for the tool
under windows.

I highly recommend it.
