    Hi folks,

    Im looking for a free utility (with a GUI preferably) that will allow me to copy files to multiple servers on a weekly basis. I don't really want to do batch files, and would rather have a GUI so I can just point and click.

    I've searched the net for a bit but have not found anything I really like. Looking for some Wilders recommendations.

    Thanks as always.

    Maybe RichCopy or FreeFileSync would work.

    Thanks I will look into the both of these. I'm trying to figure out if I should just write a batch file, or use a GUI interface to run a scheduled task.

    What do you guys think would be easier?

    I use FastCopy, although I'm not sure if it would meet your needs.

    You can use it with drag-n-drop (with right button) or with gui, but for repeated tasks I use batch files. For example, to backup (changes only) my data partition (Z: ) to an external hard drive (T: ) I use the following command:

    For me double-clicking the batch file every now and then when T: drive is connected is simpler than repeatedly entering the corresponding options and directories into a gui.

    What about TeraCopy? Or is it something totally different than what your trying to do?

    Thanks for the tips guys. I may just end up using a batch file in the end, was just looking for something GUI based that could maybe make my life easier.

    Make your life easier? Sure, mention the ones you didn't like, including accepted protocols.
