Robocopy Bidirectional Mirror
Posted on 2009-04-16
I have a Windows 2000 Server (Domain server in a 2003 AD domain) which has a folder I need to sych to a remote share on a Buffalo Terrastaion Pro II . Users will be be making changes at both locations so I need a full two-way sync. I've testing robocopy for this purpose, in particular the MIR command. What's not clear to me is if the mirror option is a one-way or two-way process. I can see that any change made on the "source" is mirrored to the "destination" but should I expect the opposite to be true. If not do I need to run a 2nd robocopy mirror command and flop the "source" and "Destination"? BTW, I've also tested RichCopy but as with Robocopy, the same question applies.
