Syncing savegames over Dropbox
This batch file will create directory junctions between your savegames and Dropbox, allowing you to share savegames across multiple computers. To sync a game, find out where the savegames are stored (Google is your friend) and add two lines to the file.
To link the samegame folder to Dropbox on the source computer:
mklink /J "C:\path\to\dropbox\savegames\best_game_ever" "C:\path\to\best_game_ever"
and the reverse for linking on the target computer:
mklink /J "C:\path\to\best_game_ever" "C:\path\to\dropbox\savegames\best_game_ever"
Once linked, you’re done. Your savegames are automatically kept in sync.
- This uploads your savegames to Dropbox, so make sure you have a large enough Dropbox account.
- Windows only. It’s a batch script.
- Assumes your Dropbox is located in %HOMEPATH%\Dropbox
- Creates a folder named savegames in the root of your Dropbox folder.
- Works with any cloud host (Dropbox, Sugarsync, Google Drive, CX, 4sync, …) as long as the sync folder is on the same partition (can’t create directory junctions between multiple drives or partitions).
- Use at your own risk.
