Hello there!
I have just installed ICE Mirror v2.0 and started a "mirror full" of my music files. It is creating the folders and copying the files so far. However it has "extracted" a number of AlbumArt files and positioned them at the root of the Mirror directory. These AlbumArt files are not visible on the root of the Master directory... ???
Other question how can I proceed to have a schedule automatic "mirror full" once every two day for example? Ca you suggest a solution for a "non programer"?
Thanks

Try to use any file manager, allowed to see hidden files. I think you will see some hidden files/directory in your Master directory.

You can use system Windows scheduler or use any other schduler for this is task. Use ICE Mirror with command line options for specifing your job in scheduller.

Something like:
ICEMirror.exe "D:\My Photo" G:\BackupStorage\Photo /MODE=1

You can find command line description in ICE Mirror help

Thanks for your support,
I looked into the help for command lines. I have used windows vista task sheduler, and have created a basic task with the following command line:
"C:\Program Files\ICE Mirror\ICEMirror.exe"
With additional arguments:
c:\Users\Pascal H:\Backup document /APPEND /MODE=1 /ROOT=TRUE /CASE=FALSE /DOS=TRUE /LOG=FALSE
When I run it I see in a flash (less then 1 second) ICE Mirror windows opening and then nothing.
Can you help me to correct my command line and arguments. There must be something wrong / missing.
Thanks

You have to use symbol " if there is space in your path

c:\Users\Pascal "H:\Backup document" /APPEND /MODE=1 /ROOT=TRUE /CASE=FALSE /DOS=TRUE /LOG=FALSE

Hi!
It seems to work now as far as command line is concerned. However after using the <"> symbol wherever required (same script and option as in my message above), I have conducted a few trials and have detected the following: If I have in the mirror directory a file called Issan 035.jpg and I reduce the size of the original Issan 035.jpg in the source directory, ICE mirror during next run delete and replace the file in my mirror directory with the resized one. I understood that it is what should happen in full mirror option but when I select /APPEND in my command line it should just add the modified file witout erasing the previously mirrored file. Can you tell me if my understanding is wrong?
My concern is the following if something wrong happen (erase file by mistake or corrupt files by mistake) just before he mirroring is launch, my safe copy (previous day mirrored) will be overwritten.
Thanks for clarifications and advices.

If there is modified file in master directory, this is file will be overwrite in the slave directory. /APPEND mode disable only deleting files witch exist in slave but not exits in master directory.
