What are you guys using to sync files between two computers? One has Win 10, the other Win 7.

I am trying to get work done in two places...

Thanks!

Has many advanced features.

A no cost advanced solution is robocopy.

Opensource single exe, "fossil sync", for source code and supporting files.
All other backups, I use PB & zlib code to pack targeted folders to multiple physical and cloud drives.

Robocopy Command line tool. Exists natively in Windows from Vista.
For help:
Code:
robocopy /? > help.txt & notepad help.txt

SyncBackSE (an old version SE v6). There is a free version with less options
https://www.2brightsparks.com/freeware/index.html
Works in directory monitor mode to backup my data directories to another internal physical disks and then to my NAS.
(Robocopy can monitoring folders too)

:idea: Backup, backup, backup, a hard disk can fail at any time without warning.

:!: Avoid using Synchronize for data, use incremental backup and manually delete olds files from backup.

:wink:

Git with a private repository (free) on bitbucket.org. But you can use github if you pay the $7/month for private repositories. Just push/pull as you're ready--works great.

Thanks a lot for the suggestions. I guess I have some testing to do. I haven't used a sync program for nearly ten years, and was hoping there might be something better these days.

Thanks again!

I use it for file sharing, but I found out they still keep files you have "deleted", and it's also no good if you are on an airplane...

Somebody here wrote a very handy little sync/backup utility several years back. Unfortunately I needed to make a few tweaks for it to meet my needs and double unfortunately, it was closed source. I have yet to find anything I like as much as that little program.

RSBasic's Live Backup System 1.1.9 (Download at his homepage)
This is made with PureBasic !
I use it nearly 2 years, to make backups to my NAS.
Other "Outsourcing" : Dropbox in crypted containers (Nobody except me has to read my crazy codes :mrgreen: ).
Full HDD Backups : Acronis True Image (yes, its not free, but worth to buy it!)

But there are many nice free tools out there... FreeFileSync, PersonalBackup just two of them.

Native telemetry and sharing options in Windows are unreliable do to policy and telemetry policy changes in the background, and they also expose SMB which is a hot target even on a subnet.

I wrote a tool that does this infinitely-deep on a list of folders and sends changed, new, and deleted over SMTP or PB file function years back for someone with a enterprise network. It was just tens of lines of code because shares, idle states, ACL, and domains don't need handled if you just make a special user for the process or run it as admin..

I don't understand why there are commercial solutions for this unless they are just to sale embedded ads or licensing.. You can write it in most languages in minutes.
