I have a Laptop contains windows 10 and I need to sync 60G to windows server 2016 which is in a different network (100km far away ), then I would like to have a nightly daily sync process that syncs the updates only without having to copy the entire 60 gigabytes every time. So essentially a delta or block-level sync and then file-level sync. So, what is the easiest way to get this going?
None of these offer an off the shelf solution as such and will require some reading of the documentation but if you’re setting up automated batch processes / scheduled it should be fairly easy to script these.
I searched so much and found how to do Block level copy using Robocopy !, my problem is how exactly can I do File-level replication and how can I sync the updates only without having to copy the entire 60 gigabytes every time using Robocopy ?
Both the mentioned tools sound good , I will give both a try besides 2 recommended tools by a colleague , Carbonite and Gs Richcopy 360 ,I wish any of these can help
My experience of doing this sort of thing on Windows however is quite limited; though I have used rsync in the past on Linux with great success to run offsite backups for various projects including a live ecommerce site.
If you could potentially have the data on Linux machines at both source and destination rsync may be an option, otherwise I do believe there are ports of rsync to Windows though these might be quite tricky to install and use.
