"Syncing" folders on HP Mediasmart Server running Windows Home Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Can I "sync" specific folders on the HP Mediasmart server with folders on my Desktop and Laptop (both running Vista Ultimate) using any / some / all of the following methods:

     

    MS "Sync Center"?

     

    MS "Briefcase"?

     

    3rd Party Sync software, e.g.  "Syncback", "Allway Sync", etc.

     

    Any tips, ideas, suggestions, instructions welcome.

     

    Thanks,

       The Wob

  • I have been using Always Sync since the release of WHS with no problems at all to sync some critical data as I have the 64 bit version of VIsta which does not support the connector software (at this time).  I am doing this on three machine and so far do not have a prolem.

  • RoboCopy will also work for this, as will SecondCopy. Also, don't use SyncToy, this is one of the programs in the KB which is noted, might cause corruption.
