    Default KDE equivalent to grsync?

    I've googled for something similar, but can't find anything. I can use grsync in KDE4, but would like to find a qt equivalent. Does anyone know of anything? I don't actually send anything over the internet. I only use it to sync files between my external USB drive backups with any new files on my desktop/laptop.

    Well you won't guess what I did http://www.qt-apps.org/content/show....b6348a8eba6552 Its not a recommendation but just tried qt instead of g and got that one.

    Like FeatherMonkey said, it's not reccommended it is alpha software.
    Afterall you care about your data otherwise you wouldn't make backups.

    Why not write a little bash script for rsync?
    All i have to do is type Backup in a console and it's done.

    I have considered this. I could easily copy the grsync options I use now to make an executable script for rsync. I'm testing Feathermonkey's find along with krsync from kde-apps.org Krsync KDE-Apps.org on my Ubuntu partitions. I plan on nuking them for Opensuse 11.2 when it goes final, so no big loss I'm on a mission to only use KDE/Qt apps by the time 11.2 goes final. This was one of the last few things on my list.

    kdialog has quite a few options if you wanted to go down this road. Quite easy to work with mixing with bash.

    I probably won't get that advanced. If I do it myself, it will only be a simple #!/bin/bash script. I would like to learn more about coding. This link will be some good reading later. I have started collecting links like this. Thanks.

    I know this is an older thread, but was wondering if QtRsync is still active?

    The only other alternative I have run across is FreeFileSync, which has a version for Windows as well as Linux.

    I use FreeFileSync on Windows to access the network drive. This has been tricky for me in the past, to getting it to access the network hard drive (one of those networked drives you purchase, not a repurposed CPU running Linux) and to set up the sync.

    The synchronizing is so that when I download pictures from my digital camera, it "synchronizes" with the networked drive so I have a backup, as well as putting it in a place that is accessible by everybody else, specifically my wife, can get access to the pictures.

    It actually just updates, which means it copies any files on my local system (Photo directory) that is not already on the networked hard drive.

    Since my wife's computer does the same thing, it keeps us from both having the 700+ folder of pictures on all of these systems.

    Or is there any other options that may work?

    Nevermind. I just realized grsync is already installed from when I installed using a Live USB (KDE).
