So I have a Git repo on my local (Windows 8) drive and within it are several projects, each with their own sub-dir. I want to setup something such that as I update/save files within this one particular project, this process maintains a synced copy in another location/directory. If this was Linux I'm sure this would be easily doable with a cronjob, but I have no clue how to do something like this in Windows 8. How do I maintain an auto-synced copy?
Use junction points/symbolic links: nothing gets actually copied, and you just access the target folder from a different path. For example you could use the following command:
The syntax is:
Quotes are required to avoid issues with space characters.
Try SyncToy. The only problem is that this cannot be scheduled. But perfectly does sync the files over multiple locations.
