Due to a mess up in mapping, a user in my domain was working for few days on his backup homefolder instead of his "live" homefolder.
So now I have 2 folders for that users with some file newer than other but in both ways...
How can I re-merge them and get a folder that has all his newest version of each file ?
PS: He has many sub-folders and his homefolder is around 20Gb.

Thank you.

I have rsync some files to a remote server.  Some of those files have been updated on the remote server and others of those files have been updated on the original server.  

I want to update the remote server so that it includes any changes to updated files on the original server but I don't want to overwrite anything on the remote server that has more recently been changed on the remote server than the original server.

Which rsync option should I use for this?

Hi,

I've been using Dropbox for years, the 1 TB account and I think it's great.  I have some clients that use Google Drive and they think it's great--until lately.  One of the users deleted a bunch of random files in many different folders.  Being familiar with Dropbox, I was thinking that it was going to be simple to restore these deleted files from the trash.  I would just go in there (past the meatloaf from last week, egg shells, etc) and sort the trash folder by date deleted or date modified and restore the data back to its original location. Apparently, it's not that simple.  The trash is all mixed together.  It has a "last modified" and "last opened" column option but there is no chronological sorting when those options are selected.  Please say that I'm missing something here.  I googled, "google drive restore by date deleted files" in hopes to find someone else that had this issue.  I found an old Google productforums page and the conclusion by the Google Drive tech was, "Thank you for posting and sorry you're running into this issue. The only way for you to restore files on specific days is to do it manually."  So, no sorting in the trash?  You must restore the whole thing and then sort through it?  I checked out Dropbox again and I see that you can sort the deleted files by date/time deleted.  Please let me know if you have some experience with this or if Google Drive is not a good option.  Thank you!

Hello EE,

We are migrating our file server and need to maintain shares and permissions.  The first I am looking at doing a full copy to see how long it takes with retaining all time stamps, permissions and shares:

robocopy "\\server\share" \\server\share /zb /MT /mir /copyall /dcopy:T /V /tee /LOG+:C:\robocopy\log.txt /r:3 /w:240

It's been a while since I've used this so want to make sure if I am missing anything.
I would then like to migrate only changes, but am not clear how to edit the above.  Any input would be great.

Evernotes files can get corrupted if the file is closed before the sync is completed.  Dropbox's sync process seems to be different.  If so, what is the difference and how does each system function?

We are looking for a solution to provide a redundant file server (file sharing) where we can have 2 copies of all files stored simultaneously.  Active failover would be the great but manual failover would work too provided we could do it quickly.

The share names and permissions would have to remain the same on both instances.

What's out there? I know windows has Dfs replication but have usually heard there are problems with locked files.

A customer of mine wants to install dropbox on her computer but when we installed it  and try to open it, it says that there is no internet connection.  but that can't be because I was remotely on her computer and we was connected fine.  If i click on the icon in the sis tray is says "connecting" but that is all.  I shut off Norton scan and Norton firewall but that did no good.  
How do I resolve this issue?

Hello SQL Server Gurus!
I am relatively new to SQL Server and I need to export data to a CSV file from a stored procedure.  The data is a SELECT from a View in the database.  The export needs to include the column names are the first row in the export (acting as the header).  This SP will be executed from another integration type tool and the requirement is that the SP generates the CSV file.  Can someone please either point me in the right direction (i have been googling without success) or maybe send some sample code?

Many thank!

We have a business scenario in which our clients send PHI to us. Our policies mandate encrypting the payload (containing PHI) prior to transfer, and then using S-FTP to conduct the transfer. We're getting complaints from our clients that the process is cumbersome.  We ask them to encrypt using 7zip, and then open Filezilla to send the payload. We think it's pretty simple but alas, some of our clients think otherwise. What we like to have is one application that can do both with a very simple UI:
1. Select the files to be shipped.
2. Under the covers with some configuration files perhaps, specify a client name and a public key for encryption.
3. Provide a username/password for the S-FTP.
4. Send.

Does anyone know whether such a tool exists, or would we be scripting this ourselves?

Hello Experts,

We are looking for a file sharing solution which will consume minimum Internet bandwidth and minimize data usage. This is a MUST.

We have a central office with fast/fat bandwidth and 5 satellite sites with VERY limited bandwidth and low allowable data usage (5 GB/month). Have been using Dropbox but the usage can be over the top.

Looking for a solution to have tighter management over file sharing and program updates usage.

Does anyone have a good suggestion?

Thanks!

Is this possible??
 
  "A folder management system whereby if and when a person attempts to move or delete a folder they must obtain the administrators consent or that only the administrator can move or delete folders or a two factor authentication for this where one of the authentications is from someone other than the person attempting to delete or move the folder. "

Thanks

For cells in one column, I want to be able to upload a XML file to each cell and have it saved there, and then another user should be able to download this file.

For cells in another column, I want to be able to upload a BMP or JPG file to each cell and have it saved there, and then another user should be able to download this file.

Is this possible to achieve in Google Spreadsheet, or by help from a plug-in?

Hi,

We are migrating our fileserver which has over 3 TB of data to a new server but would like to keep the folders and files structure with the shared and NTFS permissions and date created and modified dates. We do not want to use Robo copy because of it's limitations.

Which tool have you used migrating such a large data and keeping the folders and file structures with it's shared and ntfs permissions?

Thanks,

Is it possible to bypass the need for a LAMP server (LAMP = the Linux operating system, the Apache HTTP Server, the MySQL relational database management system (RDBMS), and the PHP programming language)?

I am looking for a way to simply put some files on a file share for a specific group and let everyone have access to whatever is required to run the application, but without having access to a full LAMP server.

Can writing php files that conform to newer standards accomplish this?  If not, is there any way to accomplish this without any installs?

We are running a fairly large peer-to-peer network.  
Recently, the Master Browser failed to list ONE of the computers on the network.
The missing computer is pingable using its IP address.
And, if one uses Start  \\computername it shows up and is added to the local computer's Network list.
When the network list is closed and reopened, it is again missing.
When the computer acting as the Master Browser is turned off, eventually the ONE computer shows up on the Network list .. coming from the new Master Browser.
Nothing else seems out of order.  Everything seems to be working as expected.
But, since the missing computer is *important* to operations, having it missing is problematic.

What could cause this?
What is the fix beyond what we did (which was to turn off the Computer Browser service on the computer which had been the Master Browser)?

A freind has a samsung 6 phone and wants to be able to tranfer files from his windows computer to the phone over wireless or bluetooth or whatever would be easiest.  Is there an app that can do this for someone with limitied tech skills?  Maybe where the program can be on the computer and you right click a file and tell it to go to the cloud and then it is accessible on the phone?

I am running ubuntu 14, using the built in FTP server.
When I try to connect to it, it connects, but I get this error below

Status:      Connection established, waiting for welcome message...
Status:      Logged in
Status:      Retrieving directory listing...
Status:      Server sent passive reply with unroutable address. Using server address instead.
Command:      LIST
Error:      Connection timed out after 20 seconds of inactivity
Error:      Failed to retrieve directory listing

Yes, I know I can change the setting in filezilla to active mode and then it would work, but that does not solve my problem.  I have a computer running a script FTP'ing files to my linux box, and it stopped working.
The only thing I did yesterday is disable and enable the firewall on the linux box, and it almot seems since then, it stopped working.

I'm thinking the problem is on the linux box?
