So Billy, I would be able to set up the BXCopy program to "watch" two or more physical locations, and back it up to a new target location? Also, found it at: http://www.nt2000.com/software/bxcopy/bxcopy.htm Yes, it's just for IIS on Windows NT Server 4.0. Is the above the most simplistic technique to do what I want to do?

You might want to look at "BXCopy". It's a "background backup and on-modify directory mirroring utility". It's what we use to synchronize our web server farm. Upload files to on folder on one machine, and the other machines are updated automatically. I'm sure the utility would still work if the source and destination files were on the same machine. If it's just for IIS, you might just want to do multiple virtual directories. But I don't think that's what you're after. :) - Billy -----Original Message----- I think I asked the wrong question. Not synchronization like that but like this: I have two folders: D:\FOLDER\SUB1\SUB1_IMAGES1 D:\FOLDER\SUB2\SUB2_IMAGES2 Right now, both are physical paths. Suppose I want any images placed in the above locations to appear in a third, common location which may end up being the only physical path with the above being virtual paths, so that the new path is D:\SUB --------------------------------------- For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archive of TheList go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt !
