Downlaod RealtimeSync. but no sure how to use it. I need to put "Folder to watch" but what do I need to type in "Command line" in order to synchronize files in both size...

I need to keep both size synchronize, (ie, only copy the changed files to the other size) and keep a log for any error. Can robocopy help under this ? Tks

FreeFileSync is very powerful and has a GUI so you don't need coding. It only syncs the changes. It is open source software. You can create batch files which you schedule as often as needed in task scheduler. In batch mode it writes a log file and the name of the file indicates if there are any errors. It will copy most locked files. Do yourself a favour and have a look at it.

Once you have created a backup, select File->Save as Batch Job. You then get options for where to save the log file, how to handle errors and what to do when complete.
Then go into Windows Task Scheduler and set a task along the lines of:
"C:\Program Files\FreeFileSync\FreeFileSync.exe" "c:\backup scripts\Server Local Backup.ffs_batch"
I have saved the batch to "c:\backup scripts" and called the batch "Server Local Backup.ffs_batch".
