Late to the party on this one. I was using a little freeware called NetClip.exe
But no matter how I tried it would never copy files over. It's a relief not to have to open the shared folders and do all the drag & drop manually. Just control-v it in there! Nice program.
Although it would be nice to explain that adding a computer name to Friends isn't enough. You also need to stick it on the list at the bottom of the settings. Right click Send To was never disabled, but it never opened. Drove me nuts for about 1/2 hour until I figured it out.
Edit: After playing around with it a bit I don't like the choice of either send every copy to the network machines, or copy, then right click, then go to Send To then choose remote machine to send a clip.
I put in a feature request. But in the meantime I did what every AHK_L programmer does. I made a macro to do the dirty work. It's called DittoFriend
. It runs in the tray along with Ditto. Set your machines in the Friends List not to copy all clips. To copy the clip you are doing at the moment, press Control-Alt-c. DittoFriend sends Control-c to the active window to copy the clip. Then it pops up a Gui so that sending keys to manipulate Ditto doesn't go into the active window(with editors you can get weird things happening.) The Quick Paste window comes up over the Gui. By macro the context menu opens on the first item, Send To is selected and Enter pressed. Then the windows are closed.
It's a kludge. But it actually works pretty well. I only have 2 machines. I haven't tested it with more machines in the Friends list. But I would think it would work as expected.
On the target network machine you just press Control-v to paste as usual.
The zip file is attached.
If you forget the hotkey hover the mouse on the tray icon.
Edit: Here's the source. I compiled using AHK_L 32 bit Unicode build.
Edit2: I made a small modification so that EmptyWorkingSet() isn't called during the hotkey processing.
Also the zip now includes a free custom icon I downloaded. Looks pretty good in the Tray
