Script to move only modified content to folder
Posted on 2014-01-20
This has probably been asked before, but I searched and couldn't find exactly what I was after.
Its a simple thing I'm sure but scripting is not my forte.
Basically I have a client who works away from her server, but comes back in house to that server every Friday of every week.
On the server there is a shared folder that contains all her work, which she has a mirror copy of stored locally on her laptop. Obviously she works on the local copy and then when she comes back on Friday she needs to copy all the modified data to the servers copy.
Now my question is would it be a good idea to use something like Bit Torrent Sync or Wuala to keep these in sync? Or is a script just as good?
The total folder size currently is 4GB, and it contains a lot of static unchanging files. I'm guessing that she only edits a fraction of those files around 100 MB per month maximum.
The other option is to use a simple script that she just runs each time she comes into the office.
Ideas are appreciated guys thanks in advance
