Re: [Free] Syncing Software
said by OZO:Hmm, I'll have to see how this works too, as this could work for me. said by Black20VT:
I'm using FreeFileSync at the moment, but as far as I'm aware, and please correct me if I'm wrong, but it doesn't sync as soon as a file changes, only on a set schedule?
There is RealtimeSync component coming with it:
RealtimeSync is a small tool which executes a command line each time it detects changes in one of the monitored directories or a directory becomes available (e. g. insert of a USB-stick). Usually this command line will simply trigger a FreeFileSync batch job.
I don't use it though, I use sync on demand manually to see what was actually changed...
said by OZO:Being a laptop, it's often off site with me whilst I work. However, the server remains at home, where I'd like to be able to sync (probably manually) from my laptop away with me, to my server at home.
Also, can it work when not on the LAN?
You lost me here. If it's not on a LAN, where is it. If it's connected to the internet and is able to open a host via system means - you can sync files between your computer and that host. There is also FTP support for other cases too...
Does that make sense?
Yes, it does. At your home you have to run VPN to get connection to your local server from any location on the Internet. I'd recommend to look at OpenVPN project.
Keep it simple, it'll become complex by itself...
Well, I've FreeFileSync working perfectly with RealTimeSync.
Thanks for the pointers, totally forgot about the RTS option.
Just need to test off site now...
Thank you for feedback.

Apologies for opening this topic again, but the RTS option on FFS just doesn't seem to be working for me anymore and I've no idea why.
So I'm back to the drawing board looking for an alternative.
So can anyone recommend anything else?
