Vista Ultimate 64 bit is giving me a headache.... I have a machine that I use as a home file server to keep a backup of my Win7 Pro laptop's files, photos and other data. I use a programme called Goodsync to automatically copy new files to the Vista machine on a regular basis, and the files are copied over properly to the network share.
As a paranoid data hog, I also want to use the Vista computer to copy those files over to an external USB drive on a schedule. I have tried Goodsync, Mirrorfolder, file copy, Acronis True Image Home, and all have failed to copy the files over. I get some of the folder / directory structure created, but hardly any of the files are copied. I have formatted the USB drive using the same user and other particulars on the Vista machine, with the same result.
Can someone shed some light on this problem, and a possible solution?
