Hi everyone, We're coming up to We Got Served's ten year anniversary and I've been taking a good look at the site to work through some plans for the future. I wanted to give you all a couple of weeks notice that I'll be closing WGS Forums at the end of this month. As you'll be aware, the forums were opened to support Windows Home Server users and have done so brilliantly, thanks to everyone's participation. However, with each day that passes, there are fewer and fewer WHS deployments out there, meaning that forum registrations and traffic has now dwindled. I've tried a few times over the years to test some forums on related or adjacent topics, however, they simply haven't caught on. It's clear that these were always going to be predominately Windows Home Server forums and, with the passing of that platform, they've served their purpose well. So, please take some time to archive anything you need over the next two weeks. Access to the forums will end on Jan 31st 2017. Many, many thanks once again for your participation and support here. It's been a great community! Very best wishes Terry

By Terry (WGS)There are many possibilities to synchronize Pc,Server,Drives and Folders. The most familiar tools are SyncToy and Robocopy. To get more usibility with syncronizing you can now use the new Addin for the Windows Server Family. SyncBerry is a Addin for Windows Home Server 2011, SBS 2011 Essentials and for the newWindows Server Essentials 2012.
The Add-in uses the power of the Microsoft SyncFramework. It use the build-in functionalities from the Server Dashboard and display clear the most important synchronize functionalities.
The synchronize workflow is broadly similar with SyncToy. To synchronize files and folders from different sources, you initially need to create a “folder pair” that represents the two folders (“left” and “right” folders) and one of the following action:
The synchronize function mirrors two folders and makes sure they have exactly the same files. New and updated files will be copy in either direction . Rename and deleted files will be deleted also on the other side.
Example: You use a Windows Server and the server has a access to a remote network folder. The files on the network folder should be exact mapped on the server side and the changes on the server should also be updated on the network folder. The network folder is a image of the local server folder and vice versa.
Notice: Every deleted file will be moved by default to the recycle bin. You can change this in the options.
The echo (one way sync) function looks for changes in the left folder and execute them in the right folder. File modification in the left folder (new files,updates,renames and deletes) will be modificated also on the right folder.
Example: You have a Microsoft Server and a external hard drive. You want to make a daily Image from one Server folder to the external hard drive. The Echo function search for changes in the Server folder and execute the changes on the eternal hard drive. Notice: Every deleted file will be moved by default to the recycle bin. You can change this in the options.
The function Contribute looks for changes in the left folder and execute them in the right folder. But it does not delete any files on the right folder that may have been deleted in the left folder. Contribute is like Echo without deletion of files.
Example: You have a Microsoft Server and a external hard drive. You want to make a daily Image from one Server folder to the external hard drive.File modification in the left folder will be modificated in the right folder but for the History without deletion of files.
By Terry (WGS)Keep your server's storage space optimized! Snoop-de-dupe will automatically scan your server storage in real-time and display duplicate files in an easy-to-view layout directly within the server’s user Console. Once snoop-de-dupe locates duplicate files then you can respond to them as you choose. You can delete the duplicate files, ignore/keep the duplicate files, or replace the duplicate files with a hard-link (available in WHS/SBS 2011 and Server 2012 Essentials only). You will be in command of your server storage space like never before!

By Terry (WGS)WebDAV for WHS enables the necessary server roles on Windows Home Server 2011 to permit WebDAV connections from network devices.
The WebDAV configuration task is placed in the server folder tab of the Server Dashboard. By launching the task, a dialog occurs to enable or disable the WebDAV feature and to choose an alias for the virtual root directory.
Installs and configures the IIS WebDAV feature
Choosable alias name for the virtual directory
Folder permissions are granted
