Folder clone/sync macro or plugin?

Post by Konrad » Wed 22 Feb, 2017 01:41

Is there a macro or a plugin that would allow easy folder cloning/synchronization?

Imagine a backup copy of some folder tree on external drive. Every now and then I'd like to refresh/update the backup, i.e. copy files that are new or modified in source folders while on the target side remove files that were removed from the source since last backup. After this clone/sync operation both folder trees would be identical.

Thanks for any hints!

(repeated thanks to all developers for a great tool I keep using on daily basis for over a decade now!)

Search the forum for “dir* synchro*”.

In the future, always use decent re-/search prior to asking.

See https://forum.farmanager.com/viewtopic. ... 37#p142637
I have no experience with this plugin but it seems to be of the kind you look for.

Thanks to all!

DirSync3 seems to do the job.

HaRT: I did some re/search before posting, but apparently not decent enough :)
