Since someone else mentioned a non-free app, let me add a recommendation for ZtreeWin.  It's a great and speedy file management tool that can perform all kinds of tasks with just a few keystrokes.  Old-timers like me (who only gave up Xtree when they pried it from me with a crowbar) love ZtreeWin.

For the fun of actually finding files, I couldn't live with Agent Ransack.

Runs fine on everything from Win2k to 7.

Directory Opus 9 is definitely NOT freeware, it fact it's bloody expensive. It is, without a doubt, the best file manager I have ever used, bar none. Batch renames, dual listers, flexible formatting, photo manipulation, thumbnails, 32 and 64 bit versions, compatible across network drives, just chocked full of stuff. I hate it when I am forced to run Windows explorer now. Does all of the above and way, way, way more.

  Wait for a sale (they do happen every once in a while!)

PS nope, don't work for the company, just want to get the word out.

I'm sure most people already know about it, but Teracopy is extremely valuable to me.  using the default windows copy sometimes yields a fun little error about how one unimportant file couldn't be copied and then the whole operation aborts... Teracopy eliminates that.

I second this.  Teracopy is a MUST-HAVE for any system.  I swear, it speeds up the normal Windows file transferring like woah.

like woah.

Vano

you are correct about "whoah".

Here is my test result copying files from network computer to local computer:

windows native file transfer: 90-120MB/sec

teracopy: 11-12MB/sec

whoah indeed...

thank you, but no thank you.

 

P.S.

Using netmeter to see network transfer speed.

Hmm.  that seems unnatural to me.  Let me investigate...

PS to previous post: I am obviously AWARE that the JMultiFilesAndDirsCopy is a probable answer - but JavaScript apps aren't compatible across all of these systems - and once loaded, Java makes constant interruptions for updates.

I travel between 3 remote offices and a shop syncing 7 computers with a 16G thumb drive - each receiving different client file downloads and files in various stages of completion. I currently use a USB thumb drive with an old DOS script to sync/replicate the MAIN CLIENTS directory on each computer. The computers have various OS'es for intrigue but this has worked for years. The script had to be loaded onto each machine and specifically configured for the unique directory location on each machine. The script is coded to NEVER DELETE files only to ADD NEW and REPLACE EXISTING WITH LATEST DATE STAMP. I realize there are probably many network/internet syncing options BUT these computers are primarily stand-alone workstations and print servers networked only to specific printers. It would be nice to have a more 'visual basic' option with more options and 'on-the-fly' switches for directory changes and file preferences for this basic sync operation.

Here is the code:

begin-->

echo off
cd\
cls
echo.
echo.
echo.
echo.
echo Ready to Sync up all DATA files from PC and Jump Drive
if exist J:\ goto CGIjump
if not exist J:\ goto NOKCGIjump

:CGIjump
echo.
echo.
echo.
echo.
echo.
echo.
echo Starting Sync
echo.
echo.
echo.
echo.
echo.
rem switch /e is to make xcopy copy subdirectories
rem switch /d is to make xcopy copy only those files who's date is newer then the destionation date.
rem switch /y is to turn off overwrite prompt
xcopy "E:\CGI\Clients 2010\*.*" "J:\Clients 2010\" /d/e/y
xcopy "J:\Clients 2010\*.*" "E:\CGI\Clients 2010\" /d/e/y
cls
echo.
echo.
echo.
echo.
echo.
echo.
echo Sync is complete
pause
exit

:NOKCGIjump
echo but the Jump drive is not connected, Sync Terminated.
pause
exit

 

<--end

I think what you're looking for is the SyncToy.  Use it with the "Contribute" function.

Dropresize is now a household staple, like Oreos and toilet paper. Thank 'ee for the tip. Saves firing up that pic reducing app every time we want to post pictures in Web 2.0.

DropResize seems great.  But if you're using the ImageResizerPowerToy (or it's Vista/7 clone) then image reszing gets embedded in your shell.  Right-Click and Reszie ftw.
