I'm looking for a good Windows tool way that allows me to automatically copy files from my local pc to a development environment on a different server. I only want to copy certain files (aspx, ascx, resx) within a directory and copy should automatically occur when I do a save on the local pc.

The way I'm doing this now is manually and sometimes with Beyond compare

What are your development environment. – STTR Aug 9 '13 at 15:00
What are you using for a code repository? You can set up some (Like TFS) to automatically deploy on check-in, and I believe there are some that will check-in when a file is updated in the file system (I believe git does this, but don't quite me) – Taegost Aug 9 '13 at 15:02
I'm using Sourcesafe and could configure it to deploy the files at check in, but since I don't have and can't run IIS on my local pc to test them, I'm using the dev environment to test the files directly and I often want to test it once I save the local file. – Mark Aug 9 '13 at 15:08
@Mark I rephrased your question a little bit. Looking for a tool is considered as a "Shopping recommendation" and tent to get closed as off-topic someday. Just ask in a more general way. – nixda Aug 11 '13 at 1:44

I often use WinScp in Keep remote directory up to date mode. You could specify file extension to update. You could use it with multiple path when you use more than one tab.

for /f "delims=" %%F in (filelist.txt) do xcopy /D /I /S /E /H /Q /Y /Z "%%F" "C:\Project\"

filelist.txt - file and folder list.

/D:m-d-y Copies files changed on or after the specified date. If no date is given, copies only those files whose source time is newer than the destination time.

/I If destination does not exist and copying more than one file, assumes that destination must be a directory.

/Q Does not display file names while copying

Autorun autosync?

NTFS Audit event -> LogParser -> MSSQL (Stored Procedures (... xp_cmdshell ...))

or use

WMI Event
