Basically what i want to do it to select one, two or more folders in my primary computer and replicate them in another computer, for example:

Everytime i save any file, lets say 001.jpg into c:\photos\, it would also be saved into \\\photos as well!
Can this be done with windows alone, some batch file, or will i need a third party software?

Thanks in advance!

You can't do this automatically, you need to run a script or a program.

You'd have to run the script each time you save the file though and pass it the file name as a variable. Even a simple DOS batch file will do it.

Copy %1 C:\blah\blah
Copy %1 D:\blah\blah

Run the file with the batch file name followed by the file name, move.bat somefile.jpg, it will replace the %1 with the file name passed to it.

There are programs that synch folders also if you don't want to run the batch file each time.

SyncToy is one
