I want to set up a folder that saves/duplicates everything from another folder...HOW?
    #3691562 - 01/28/05 12:43 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

I basically want all the contents of a folder to keep a backup of everything that is added to it - but also not remove what is removed from the main folder. Basically keeping an archive of everything I put in it regardless of how I change it.

Can this be done automatically?

XP Professional by the way

Googled for backup or archive software yet?

(linux by the way, before you call me an asshole - I just don't want to google for you if you haven't already)

i've wondered how to pull off a similar stunt. in my case i don't need deletes to be ignored and the 2 folders are on separate machines. this is easily accomplished with LVM in linux (or RSYNC or even some judicious linking). i'm not sure how it's done in 'doze. It seems like you'd need some kind of network RAID implementation (basically LVM).

i'll be watching this thread

PowerQuest used to make a product called DataKeeper that would do what you want. I don't know what happened to the product since symantec bought out powerquest.

I can guess. They messed it up, making it bloated and a resource hog, and then charge too much money for it.

HagbardCeline: Try Karen's Replicator. It's freeware, and I have heard it's also spyware/crapware free. I've never used it though, so YMMV...

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

Yep had the exact same dilemma the other week, on a windows based network. Got a solution from a bud at work, now synchronizing folders by dates added and between multiple OS. (just make it run in the background shhhh every so many mins)
luvdemshrooms app looks similar to what you want + tolietduck, any probs pm me :wink:
