View Full Version : Syncing music libraries (QNap 101)

Folks,

I have a lovely QNap 101 and a SB3.

I was wondering what software people use to replicate their music library across to the the music directory on the Qnap and then keep it in sync. I don't think much of the replicator software that comes with it as it doesnt appear to let you replicate to sub directories on the Qnap shares.

Any ideas on what to use instead?

TIA

If you're using XP, there's a Microsoft PowerToy called (something like)
SyncToy. Check out the Microsoft web pages...

Following some recent threads on the subject - I am now using robocopy in a
number of places - including backing up of my music library.

It is part of the Windows 2003 server resource kit and is available as a
free download from Microsoft.


Hope it helps.

I have a Qnap TS-101 & run Win XP PRO on my PC. In order to synchronise files & create backups of key data files onto my Qnap I use an excellent piece of software called "Second Copy".
It is easy to set up schedules & backup over networks, & having used this software for over 4 years I can recommend it 100%
