If you’ve been reading my blog lately, you know I’ve been working to get my backup situation improved particluarly when it comes to DV tapes and photos. I’ve been using $g(Microsoft’s SyncToy), one of the free $g(Microsoft Power Toys for Windows XP) and I have to say it works fairly well and supports scheduling backups with $g(Windows Task Scheduler) using the -R command line switch for selecting particular file groups. I wish Microsoft would release the source code to apps like this so they could be picked up by the development community and further enhanced rather than releasing them with an unknown future. Prior using SyncToy I used a batch file and xcopy so to having a UI to configure targets source/destination directories is nice.
What do you use for syncing files/directories?
