Thanks for your work on this, Steve. Oh, you'll be happy to know you're on track for hitting 1/2 million downloads next month. Smile

can we instead have an rsync frontend and make it into portable instead of this app? I'd rather unleash the power of rsync's sync algorithm than a simple hash or date check?

It's not what you know, its what you can prove.
