We have a file folder that has files that hit it on a irregular basis and we need it to replicate in another folder on when ever those files hit it. Do you have any recommendations or products that will do this. It needs to monitor a file folder and replicate it to another.

Have you already considered Robocopy?  It has the advantage of being built into the operating system, having a fair number of options, including the ability to monitor the source and resync the changes after so many minutes or so many observed changes.

I would take a look at vice versa for this. We used this tool at one of my last companies for almost this exact same scenario. It has lots of different copy options available and will allow you to monitor on file/folder changes

Razmus -
Can RoboCopy run in the seconds range or is it only capable of running minutes?

If you need to do this on the cheap and have time, write a Perl script.

If configured based on time, the time is set in minutes.  There is also the option to copy based on monitored changes.

If you opt for writing a script to synchronize directories, I'd suggest using the native powershell.

Looks like we currently have Automate and I created a unidirectional folder replication job that runs once a second. Seems to be working fine.  Thank-you!
