I am trying to setup a way to sync the folders (1 way from source to target) & automate this to run every night to capture all the new files added to the source & then copy them to the traget.
I have initially done a baseline copy to a external nas, & shipped it to the location of the target machine. So right now the target machine has about 90% of the data, however it has been 2 months since this inital copy & the folders have grown approx. 40gb since then
the 2 sites are connected with a VPN.
My initial idea was to use something like Live Vault, however, it does not seem necessary to use it since there is a VPN connecting the 2 locations.
for smaller types of these migrations i use Richcopy & manually run it, or setup a schedule to do so, & then the night of the live cut over/migration i preform a initial sync of the 2 locations (1 way) & then restore their DB's
however, this client is 1 that plans on testing for a few months before going live on the new system & quite frankly i do not have the time to connect all the time & initiate the process.
any information would be greatly appreciated.
(also yes i know that hundred's of thousands of document files sitting in 1 directory is not the best thing on windows, but that is how their application does it.)
