On my work computer I run Portable Apps off the HDD but have a mirrored copy on my flash drive. I do this because sometimes I need to work at other computers and occationally at home, so I use the flash drive for this. In general the "Equalise" option works well, unless I do the following:
e.g. On the flash drive (Say at home) I will re-arrange my files, move the old ones to an "Archive" folder and delete some I no longer want.
When I "Equalise" - As expected:
1. The ones that I have deleted are copied back from Work HDD
2. The ones I have moved get duplicated in the "Archive" folder on the Work HDD
3. The ones that I have moved into the "Archive" on the flash drive, get copied back from the work HDD (So I end up with a copy in "Archive" and a copy where it was originally.
I know that I could use Mirror to help alleviate this, but if I mirror in the wrong direction OR I have changed files on BOTH the HDD and Flash drive, then I will still lose something somewhere.
I have a few ideas on how this could be implemented, but only IF this option may be a viable one.
Thanks for taking the time to read this..
