SyncToy vs. Media Collector RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi.  First time ever on one of these forums. 

    I love synctoy.  I use it in contribute mode to store all of my images (I'm a photographer) on external hard drives. I like it because in "contribute" mode, when I delete a file or folder from my computer it doesn't delete if from the external hard drive (like window's back-up does).  Today I purchased and installed the HP MediaSmart Home Server and set up "media collection."  I'm hoping media collection will work like synctoy but collect data from multiple computers (I use more than one in my home for my work).  I'm asking if anyone knows whether that is true or not, becuae I'm sure it will take hours for me learn it and do the initial set-up.  So, will the media collector function as the contribute mode in synctoy, and do it over three or four laptops in use on the same network?

  • Have no idea for media collector.

    But I am wondering, why not continue to use syncToy?
