I have a directory structure with thousands of directories and around 100k files. (Actually it is a large java project's source tree). I have to replicate this to 10-20 windows machines.
What I do today is one of the options in Options for continuous one-way replication of tens of millions of files on Windows Server? -- rsync.
I share the source directory on the master. This is mapped on all destinations machines. Then use rsync ( from a cygwin installation ) I to copy files over. The copying took 30 minutes. The process slows down as number of salves increases. I hope there is some better solution. What is it?
