syncing TBP with TB

Hello everybody

I just installed TB on a new laptop and want to keep it in sync with my TBP, however it seems TB is ignoring the data I keep copying over.
no matter what i do , TB always starts from scratch, ignoring the profile with all the mail and data.
I have tried starting TB, then moving all the files into the newly created ******.default folder. I have tried creating a new folder and edited the profiles.ini file accordingly, however the only thing that has been updated are the addons

Any suggestions anybody?

thank you

Marco

I personally use Gmail which offer IMAP, so I have no sync issues.

Other than that, maybe you could try to make a full synchronization of your profile folder with Toucan?

Follow up

This post seems to address the OP direct question if he does choose to use Toucan:

Layperson directions for sync'ing TB with Toucan

Note to Marco:I myself do not use the program and know little about it's sync functions. If you do decide to use it follow the creators instruction about backing up before testing.

Use...

A program to sync the data in your portable data folder with your Documents & Settings/blabla data folder... any sync program can do that...

If a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port,
and the bus is interrupted as a very last resort,
and the address of the memory makes your floppy disk abort,
then the socket packet pocket has an error to report Biggrin
