Hello Experts,

I need to copy the folders and images from one server 192.168.0.204 d:\optiximages to another server 192.168.0.79 d:\optiximages about twice a day for mirroring purposes. What is the best way to accomplish this? I was thinking of using Xcopy to create a batch file and then scheduling it but I'm not sure on the xcopy syntax to use for the folders and files in them.

Thanks in advance.

This was the batch file I was thinking of running.
xcopy /e /o d:\optximages\*.* f:\optximages\

I read another question along this problem regarding the use of ViceCersa Pro and am thinking about just using that and see how it goes for a few days. It seems pretty easy and straight forward. Any comments on this program?

This is what I use. Which works great.

* Local Coping *
F:\>robocopy G:\InetPub\wwwroot K:\InetPub\wwwroot *.* /E /T

* Network Coping *
G:\>robocopy G:\InetPub\wwwroot \\Carrz-Developer\G\InetPub\wwwroot *.* /E /T

Either of the above will copy to the destination directory, coping over ONLY the files that have changed.
RoboCopy, does get stuck on certain files that may be in use.
Have not found a work around on that issue yet.


-------
Not familuar with ViceCersa Pro, never heard of it, so cannot give my opinion on it.

Update...I have used ViceVersa Pro and it works great. I will be buying the full version after the 30 day trial. Here is the link if anyone else is interested in using this. http://www.tgrmn.com/

Thanks for input.
