Sync to Fastmail Webdav from PC?

I'm looking to sync a file from my PC to Fastmail's webdav.

There are a ton of things on Android (I think I'll choose FolderSync). I'll be wanting to put a file up in my webdav space, automatically have it sync and put there, then go to my Android later and when I open up the app, the fresh file will load. Then I can use FolderSync on the phone to sync any changes.

If anyone else does this, what tool do you use and recommend?

If using a Windows PC, consider Total Commander. This works very well for one-way or two-way syncing with the ability to review changes before auctioning them. Under Linux, I use rsync from the command line, but I believe there are GUI tools available that use rsync under the hood. The use of rsync effectively directly does mean a bit of a learning curve (especially for two-way syncing).

Under MS Windows, another popular tool is ROBOCOPY. I use this when I want something I can run on a scheduled basis with no need for review before execution. Personally, I only risk this when using it for backup purposes (a one-way sync). Windows has builtin capabilities for continuous sync built around MS DFS replication, but I have found it unstable.

MS SyncToy is another folder sync program - free from MicroSoft.
I've not tried it with a WebDav defined location though.

Oh will look at that one. Thanks.

With Robocopy, I'm not too sure about that one. But I'll look too thanks.
