Sync to more than one computer

Post by thewolfe »

I sync my important files to a slave drive on my main computer.

Can I also syn to a networked computer so I have a set on a completely different computer in case my main computer crashes both of it's drives or is destroyed somehow?

Hi,

Yes, create a new profile in SyncBackFree with source pointing your files on the main computer and destination to a network drive using UNC path (\\HostName\ShareName\ or \\IPAddress\ShareName\). If your network system/device requires a username and password credentials to connect to it, you may need to save these credentials under:

Modify profile > Expert > Network > enter the credentials to connect to your network

Please read the footnotes provided in the Help > Expert > Network settings page to understand and try the different ways of entering the username credential in the username field and use the "Test Connection" button available in the Network settings page to ensure the connection work as expected, before running the profile.

Thank you.
