"Smart Sync" with Hazel Fri Nov 05, 2010 7:18 pm • by daywalkerdha

I'm new to Hazel, watched some tutorials and played around with the demo version.

I currently use Dropbox to create backups of different files on my Mac (iCal+Automator)
For example my Adium transcripts:
- every day iCal starts an Automator action that does..
- zip all transcripts
- copy them onto my dropbox
It works but since there are many files it takes some time and Dropbox has to upload everything every time.

My question is if it is possible to "watch" the main log folder with hazel and recreate the structure in another folder (best scenario, once a day and not every time a single file changes).

The main folder contains one folder for every contact(can't predict the name) and in each of these folders many files(cant predict the names, either)

edit: Sorry, didn't see the note that this folder is only for fixes.....
