Synchronize over the internet? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it possible to synchronize folders over the internet?
    I need to synchronize some folders at my computer at work with some folders on my NAS at home.
    I never get the OK-option when I select these folders in SyncToy.

    Thx.

    We do not support sync'ing over HTTP so I am afraid you are out of luck on sync'ing like this through SyncToy

  • PC to PC sync would probably be better served using Windows Live Sync instead. Also, Microsoft Live Mesh is a good solution to store files on the web and between PCs but has a 5 GB limit.

  • What protocol are you using to access your NAS? 

    SyncToy does allow you to have a network folder as an endpoint, you can either enter the full path (ie. \\address\folder )  or map the network drive to a local drive and provider that path (ie. X:\folder).

    What do you mean with you never get the "OK-option when you select these folders in SyncToy"?

    What version of SyncToy are you using? On what OS and architecture?

  • I have the same problem with web folders. Synctoy works fine within my home network and VPN (excellent, in fact), but if I try to select a web folder accessed via https: to create a new pair the OK button is dimmed and Synctoy won't select it. This is using Vista Business with SP2. I am using Synctoy 2.0.
