I am using a network disk (that's connected to my router by USB) to store several data files. A simple .NET application that I've created is supposed to read and modify these data files. However, some security issues are preventing this application to access these files directly. (Actually, these have been built-in to my application on purpose since it's not going to support NAS disks.)
Since this disk is shared with several computers, I just want to have a simple synchronisation method, which will copy the files to a local folder where my application can access them. And, once modified, it should send back the modified files to the NAS disk again.
I have two options:
- Build a second application to do my own synchronisation.
- Find some build-in function inside Windows 7 Ultimate which can do this for me.
Option 2 is preferred. Option 1 is something I can do easily, if need be. I don't need third-party tools. (Still, feel free to add some references to good tools, although I won't accept them as answers.) Basically, is this possible with Windows 7 and if so, how?
