dSync for OS/2
This program creates and maintains exact copies of files, directories
or the whole disks in/on the other directory/disk.
One can specify any number of directories and files for excluding from
copy process, and any number directories for copying to.
This is a text mode program, results are showed on the stdout or log file.
It has a daemon working mode in which the data synching will be done once
a day at the specified time.
The main purpose of this program is to store the whole copy of important data
on the spare HDD or spare partition for fast restoring in the case of the main
media damaging. You can store the whole copy of your system bootable partition
and in the emergency cases just select the spare disk as the bootable.
