In case you’ve ever been curious if it was possible to sync two Windows Home Server boxes together, the answer is YES. Home Server Hacks has posted a guide on using a freeware tool called SyncToy 2.0 by Microsoft that handles this very duty. Why would you want to do this? Two reasons mainly: 1) you want to migrate your stored files to a new Windows Home Server; 2) you’d like to have added protection of your precious files and want to keep an active copy available on a WHS machine in another room of the house (or perhaps the second WHS provides content to separate group of users in a multi-person household). Well, whatever your reason, the process is simple enough to accomplish and may be worth your time to set up.
