Replicator

Automatically backup files, directories, even entire drives! Karen's Replicator copies selected files from one drive/folder to another. Source and Destination folders can reside anywhere on your network.

Options include repeated copies at intervals as short as a few minutes, or as long as several months, copy only files that have changed, and the replication of folder and file deletions.

New features allow you to specify which files should not be copied, and also which days a file should be skipped!

Replicator Failures?

Many people use the program to automatically backup files they create at work or at home. The files might be copied to a remote server, a local removable disk, or just another place on their computer's local hard drive. Either way, the user can sleep better at night, knowing they have at least two copies of every important file.

Normally, everything goes according to plan. If you look at the Replicator's main window, after it's finished copying some files, you'll see statistics showing how many files were copied successfully. It even throws in some fun numbers, like files and bytes copied per second.

But, like the rest of us, the Replicator has its bad days. Try as it may, sometimes it has to give up and report one or more "failures" - files that, for one reason or another, couldn't be copied. Always honest, the Replicator reports these failures on right its main window, alongside its prouder accomplishments.

What went wrong? Perhaps an original file was "locked" by another program, preventing the Replicator from reading its data. Or the destination might be protected by Windows security, preventing the Replicator from creating a copy.

It's even possible the disk drive containing the source or destination file is having problems of its own, randomly preventing programs from reading or writing those all-important 1s and 0s.
