I want to synchronize files between a server share (2003) and two other computers.

Basically I have a 2003 Server exporting a share and I want it to periodically write the contents of that share out to two other locations (one is another Server2003 share while the other is an XP workstation). It is obviously very important that the common server overwrites the two other locations, and not vice-versa.

Will Xcopy work for you?
XCOPY /D C:\MyShare\*.* \\MyXPMachine\MyXPShare
XCOPY /D C:\MyShare\*.* \\MyOtherServer\My2k3Share

/D "copies only those files whose source time is newer than the destination time."

That's pretty slick.

So I just make a batch file and run it in scheduler?

Now, I like the idea of doing it this way rather than through the goo, but
synchronization can be triggered by logon/ logout or after an interval.
I suppose I could build it into a login script...

I like it, but I think I would prefer using offline file synchronization. Given the
likely realization that synchronization is broken or sucks, this would be an excellent
fix..

Thank you sb .

Yes - logon script or via task scheduler should do it. . .good luck!

I feel, by the author's last comment, that it's been appropriately answered, but need author response to be certain. . .
