Save CAM NC files to two separate locations

Question asked by David Lewis on Aug 29, 2018

Since I got a second computer to attach to the CNC machining center, I have been looking for a solution to mirror my native save location folder for NC files so that it is available to that second computer that points to a Z drive.

 

I do not want to alter the native save location; I simply want that folder to mirror to my Z drive. Alternatively, I would also accept saving NC files to two different locations in one stroke of the save button. Is this possible?

 

I have found a number of applications that mirror one folder to another location, but they are all scheduled based on time intervals or manually. I need a solution that mirrors the folder as soon as I save a new file there, or compares two folders and uploads the new files. I am baffled that this is not a native Windows feature.
