Download to 2 locations

Post by omnicube » Mon Apr 18, 2011 4:34 pm

Hi all,

I know this one sounds like a simple one but I can't seem to find anything about this. How do I download from one folder on a server to 2 different locations locally at the same time? I don't want to create 2 different scheduled downloads as this could leave a minute or a few seconds in between downloads meaning the files will be inconsistent with each other.

Any advice would be appreciated,

What you want to do is something like this:
- Setup 1 download
- Once the file is downloaded mirror (copy) it to the 2nd location

You can realize this with the Professional Edition and transfer queue item scripting:
