I need to transfer a dvd's worth of content in a folder - many small files, some big across servers on a consistent basis.
What's the best way of doing this?
This is for a windows server environment.
There any number of file transfer tools. If you need a scheduled sync up of folders you might try Robocopy or Richcopy. For a more pernament solution without having to script you might try setting up DFS.
Not the most sophisticated way but easiest.
Set up a share with correct permissions and run the copy over night...........
That would be my, 'anything for an easy' life answer.
Or burn the DVD, and put into the destination drive, copy of the DVD....
Given a professional setup (active directoy on both sides):
Establish a DFS-R replicated folder. I maintain this oneevery site allowing me nice background syncs between them. I transfer your amount pretty much daily.
