Sync folders on multiple computers
I am looking for a software for syncing folders on multiple computers. Specifically, I want perticular folders on all computers to copy to a central computer, e.g. comps A, B, and C each have folder "Data" on their local hard drives, now I want to copy all files under "Data" from A, B and C to comp D, but I don't want files on comp D to be copied to A,B, and C. Currently I'm using software called "foldershare", but I haven't figured out a way to sync only one way and not both ways. Does any one know how to do this? Is it possible to do this using "xcopy" command?

Do some google on Robocopy.

Can I use robocopy to transfer files from one computer to another, and how to specify that. e.g., I want to copy files under "C:\data" on local hard drive to another computer with name "comp2", so under source path I specified: C:\data, and under the target path I specified: comp2\\C:\Transfer, but it doesn't work. Is this syntax right or how to specify the remote computer?

map a network drive and then use that drive letter as destination. or just the share name... or ip/hostname with $ parameter?

If the computers are not on the same network or you would also like a cloud backup you could use a service like Sugarsync.
To prevent Computer B,C,D from making changes to the file on Computer A, you just share the folder as read only.
This way any changes you make to the folder on Computer A is automatically backed up to the cloud and then copied to Computers B,C,D.
It's free up to 2gb so why not give it a go?
