[thelist] How can two folders be synchronized on NT?

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:

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.  :)

I think I asked the wrong question.
Not synchronization like that but like this:

I have two folders:

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
