Hi,

This is not really a specific slimdevices question, but pretty common I would guess. I'd basically like synchronise my whole music collection with another Windows machine, and get them to synch up over the network every day. If I was on *nix I would use rsync for this, but this appears to be pretty tough to install on Windows.

Has anyone else found a solution?

It would need to handle deletions and modifications as well as newly added stuff, much as rsync does.

Thanks,

Steve Button

I'm regularly using rsync on Windows. Just google for Windows and rsync:

Microsoft have their free SyncToy tool - should fit the bill
