Keep local directory up to date

Just thought it would be nice to keep the local directory up to date. That is, make sure you have the latest versions of programs, databases etc :)

Re: Keep local directory up to date

How do you want to do that? There's no way to be notified about change in remote directory. All you can do is to scan it yourself. And that's what function "Synchronise" is good for :-)

Just put a timer on it :) Check for changes every n'th minute (No need to wait out the synchronizing process).

That's what you can do with Windows scheduler yourself.

Re: Keep local directory up to date

tried Windows Scheduler but no luck. It only goes to weekly, daily but not intra-day. If I'd like the scan to happen every 10min it's not possible. Is there an equivalent of Unix's "sleep 10" in Windows? so at least I can write a script that does synching. Thanks!
