SyncToy to synchronize or backup files and folders automatically - video tutorial

Hi friends, in this video tutorial we will talk about SyncToy application, this folder synchronization software is produced by Microsoft and does not cost anything, anyone can download from Microsoft's website or on videotutorial.ro at end of text Introductory video tutorial above.

SyncToy helps us to synchronize folders in different locations on your hard drive or hard drives of our computer, for example you want to NCR all the documents you save on your desktop or in My Documents with SyncToy is very easy to make that, even more, it can schedule automatic synchronization at intervals that Schedueled using Tasks in Windows XP, Vista or 7.

Data sync specific folders puts us important files shelter so our data will be safe because there are two different places, it is best to use hard drives different (if possible) to prevent a total loss of data important in case of a hardware failure (failure hard disk), I actually passed some time ago through such an experience and please believe me that it is not nice to lose in a second database to which you have worked for months personal archives of digital photos or tight in years.

SyncToy application is very easy to use, do not think that will pose problems even for beginners, but instead have to be very careful when choosing the sync option, these options are three in number and do the same thing at first, but if you are careful you will notice that differ in how the application behaves according to the option chosen, these options are:

1. Synchronize. This option synchronizes folders in both directions, you put the left goes right and vice versa, the same is true when you delete or rename a folder or file in the right or left, the same thing happens automatically in the other.

2. Echo. This synchronization is done from left to rights only if you add a file folder on the left it will automatically add the folder to the right, the same as deleting or renaming, if you delete or rename the left and it will happen-n right. Warning, if you add a file in the right folder, it will not go on the left, de-also if I delete or rename the right, the left will not happen anything, that synchronization is only from left to right.

3. Contribute. In this case it looks like setting "Echo" except for the deletion, that everything goes add the left and right, the same as renaming, deleting only difference is, that if you delete something from the left to the right will not wash off. If you add something or delete something right nothing happens on the left, that synchronization is only from left to right, right to left nothing works.

You specified something, I determine the folder that will be the left and right, you'll understand better after watching the tutorial video, whatever your partition layout or folders in My Computer, right or left folders you set them in SyncToy application wizard.

I hope you find this program useful and do not forget, your opinions and your suggestions on the comments section.

Enjoy. SyncToy 2.0 DOWNLOAD

    The best solution in my opinion is backup. A friend of mine had bought not long ago brand new pc. I firstly I download ZoneAlarm at Paragon and after that I did a backup disk C. After several hours, began to annoy ZoneAlarm that bothered him at every step. A firewall uninstalled ter and put one in Win and put it up on their do windows update. When you open up the PC the next day sees Advandge's ready to detect. Then even caught very well that made me Bacup.

  23. Hello and congratulations for tutorial and for all make very good idea!

    I have a small problem on the breaking of large hardware, are happened with 80 250 g g and all we (I lost everything) and give an idea blossomed thousand not know how I can achieve, I 2 main computer p4 / 1700 and secondary 2 p3 / 400 2 all internal network ip output and how I could make a pair synchronization between primary and secondary calc Thus incited mainly run on any date to be automatically transferred in real-time operating system including secondary but go and vice versa mention as soon equip all 4 with large hard drives 1000 g (1,5 terra) and me a strong fear of system failure or hard. (for this reason we delayed the provision of older drives do not guarantee long-term shows 5 -10 years, although I have a hard to 13g of 20 years go xp pro, 20 years!)
    In 2 kind words automatically Bacup but between computing and networking - the smallest being a miniature copy of the great but without the possibility of large permanent exception interrogate the great sal and its the data and in case of system kolaps take command and reinstall all head tail - (database)

    Do you have a solution to make this program and backup pst files when the program is open?

    Thank you very much

    All software backup recommend closing any applications you want to make back-up. For those software or files being use backup software may not work properly with them! It's like trying to change the wheel of a car while walking!

    I found Dropbox software http://www.dropbox.com which is similar to SyncToy.

    Maybe you're tired you send email or many files always carry with you a USB stick with those files now importante.De free use Dropbox.

    Once you have installed on your computer, any files placed in the Dropbox folder is synced and available on other computers that have Dropbox. Also, any changes to a file in Dropbox is felt and available in other calculatoare.Programul is available for both MAC and Linux 10.4 +.

(ie, start again to copy all movies, make them again backup the entire to "s1") do not know if I made too understand what I'm trying to ask is, each time you access the program, "s2" are small changes that I did in the meantime "s1"? Or whenever you access the program, delete all the "s2" and start copying again "s1"? For it is very important for me this is a waste of time if he ever again ... delete and copies the .Multumesc, expect an answer soon and ... .tineti up the good work, bravo !!!

      tutorial was clear as can be, most forgotten once to him to the end without scrolling if you still did not get the idea means you're dumb

  28. The 3 synchronization modes are explained in the text above tutorial, you read it?

  29. can be programmed in any way so as to make it automatic backup operation without making them give you manual "Run"?

  30. It is not just about timing, but a kind of automatism as the timing. Moreover, it can be used in conjunction with the application of face even present.
    A progam that will automatically register Santa's movements and keyboard, then it will play, step by step exactly the operations you made.
    For example, log-area registered in an account with typing username, password. If you have multiple accounts, record for each account and thus do not have to sign in every time u redo steps browser and log areas for each account.
    The program is called "Mouse and Keyboard Recorder" and you can download to the here.

  31. Thank you very much! I really was helpful!

  32. hello. I would like to use the app to work. if you edit certain documents doc sync keep in mind that these files were modified files and rewrite them in the "right" in your tutorial?

    Howdy. Now I've found this tutorial very interesting ... I've been hit by such a loss of files when the hard drive went ... But let's get to my question: can I sync a folder that has several subfolders? For example in pictures ... I have them in a folder named Pictures and inside I have other folders in years, and every year other subfolders with the date I made them (pictures). Thank you.
