PDF Print E-mail

Mostly, it’s the value of the data stored in a hard drive that motivates us to create backups. Since the data keeps changing, regularly updating the backups in accordance with the data is a lot of hassle. Windows File Replicator is a simple backup tool that replicates changes made in your source folder to your destination folder in real time. It is capable of monitoring multiple source folders for changes, and automatically makes those changes to your multiple backup locations. You can set the application to replicate data when it is renamed, created, changed or deleted in source folders. Windows File Replicator monitors all the errors, warnings and messages, and allows you to export list of alerts in an excel file.

The interface of Windows File Replicator has three tabs; File Replication Tasks (to start and edit replication settings), File Replication Alerts (to view errors, warnings and messages) and File Replication Log File (to view exceptions). To start, right-click File Replication Tasks and choose New File Replication Task in the left pane to enable the File Replication Task Editor. Now, choose a task name, check the operations that you want replicated in your backup folder, select a source folder and a destination (backup) folder, check Task is Enabled, and click Update. You can include sub-folders for backups by selecting Include Sub Folders, and can add multiple tasks in the same way to backup more folders. Finally, start, pause or delete a task at any time by right-clicking the task name in the left pane.File Replication Console Tasks

Open the File Replication Alerts tab if you want to view the Errors, Warnings and Messages that appear while replicating files. You can save the list in an XMLX format for future use.
