Manual?

I am interested in using Toucan, but can't find the manual. I am trying to find some documentation that explains the differences between the sync modes:

- Copy
- Update
- Mirror (Copy)
- Mirror (Update)
- Equalise

I know I could set up some test folders and files to experiment, but if this was documented somewhere that would be helpful!

I could swear I tried that, but the page that loaded had no help, but now it appears to be there.

Thanks!

Manual?

When I hit the Tool Tab then the Help Button, it simply takes the user back to the portableapps.com page relating to Toucan...no help at all.

(Just installed ver 1.2.2.0)

Am I missing something?

Thanks much.

I am planning to release a small tutorial on how to use the secure function to protect sensitive data like passwords, etc of multiple applications by using Toucan. I just want to make sure I'm not releasing something buggy ;).

Nice to know the version 2.0

Nice to know the version 2.0 is coming. Just one thing I'd like to add: Could it be possible to avoid asking twice for the password when using Rijndael-Decrypt on version 2 ? Seems redundant to me especially on decrypting, as Rijndael will warn if the password is incorrect.

FYI, here is a little list of files I secure on my USB drive to protect my privacy.
\PortableApps\FirefoxPortable\Data\profile
cert8.db
content-prefs.sqlite
cookies.sqlite
downloads.sqlite
formhistory.sqlite
key3.db
permissions.sqlite
places.sqlite
sessionstore.js
signons3.txt
webappsstore.sqlite

\PortableApps\PidginPortable\Data\settings\.purple
accounts.xml
