Robocopy Synology

Hello everyone been lurking around for awhile, so much knowledge on this forum.

I hope someone can help me, I am just a noob, don't know to much.

I ecently purchased a synology Network Attached Storage (NAS).

and I would like to set up so that files tranfer from one folder to the next automatically, I am not sure what type of line to put into the command prompt?

The original folder is C:\user\recordedtv the other one is on my network and shows up as DISKSTORAGE i have a folder on there called beyondtv and would like to copy all files from C:\user\recordedtv.
How would I do this?

I couldn't agree more. I think SyncToy is a great utility that makes incremental backups of individual folders a cinch.
