Define Source and Destination Path

<p>$localPath = “C:\Users\Username\Documents” # Local folder<br>$networkPath = “\FileServer\Share\Documents” # Network folder</p>

<h1>Check if the network path is accessible</h1>

if (Test-Path $networkPath) {

# Check if the local folder exists; if not, create it

if (-not (Test-Path $localPath)) {

New-Item -ItemType Directory -Path $localPath | Out-Null


# Get the list of files in the local folder

# Loop through each local file and synchronize with the network folder

foreach ($file in $localFiles) {

$localFilePath = Join-Path $localPath $file.Name

# Compare file timestamps or other criteria to determine if synchronization is needed

Write-Host “Synchronization completed.”
