Re: Backup files from my computer to home server?
The best way I can think of is this...
First copy all the files to the server using FTP, so you know that the copy on the server is fully up to date.
then write a batch script,
the batch script needs to copy all recently added or modified files, (there is a switch to do this) to a temporary file. then you need to copy the temporary file to the FTP server, (again can be done inside the same batch file), after that delete the temp folder on your local machine. and that's all there is to it.
the hardest part is getting a reliable backup on the server.
It is possible that you can get something that will log into the server look at what is there compare that to what's on your local machine and then only copy the things that you haven't got. but I don't think thi sis as good as the method above. for the simple reason that it's only going to look at the file names. if you've modified the files, (like updated the ID3 tags) then they won't be copied, because the file will already exist on the server even though it's a different file.
the first way I said will copy the new file to the server since the modified date will have changed.
