For computer literate people:
There’s something about Asian parents that makes them think that taking pictures for any event is of paramount importance. Chances are, you have at least 20GB of pictures laying around on your computer. If your family has more than one computer (which they probably do), pictures and backups of pictures can get hard to manage.
You don’t want to wait for a harddrive failure to backup your all-important pictures.
If you’ve already setup a home network (complete with static internal IP’s) you can access remote drives using the hidden root drive directory (\\192.168.0.100\C$ for the C:\ drive). But copying and pasting pictures takes wayy to long. Especially since there’s a much easier way to do it.
XCOPY "Location1" "Location2" /D /E /C /R /K /I /S /Y
Replace Location1 and Location2 with your initial location and your final destination. (This only sync’s one way.)
So, if you want to sync 10.10.10.102’s Photos to your own computer, use
XCOPY "\\10.10.10.102\C$\directory\to\photos" "C:\photos\newphotos" /D /E /C /R /K /I /S /Y
Yeahh.. have fun with it.
