I am trying to sync with a NAS that has its disks set to spin down.

Is there any way I can run an external program, such as a "Wake on LAN" utility prior to running my FreeFileSync batch?

That WakeMeOnLan utility from Nirsoft is the one I currently use with the internal IP address of the NAS specified.

Could this and the FreeFileSync batch config file be combined together in an old fashioned DOS batch file?

I think I would need a pause/delay function to wait until the NAS has woken up though.
