Scheduler during the day

I had ST4i installed on my desktop and a laptop. I was using FreeFileSync to do a two-way sync of the files in the "My Documents" folder. I think this is what got ST4i confused. I now have excluded the SkyTools 4 folder from this two-way sync.


So, what is the recommended way to keep the Imaging Projects, etc in sync between two computer?

Thank You,

Hi Greg,

In many cases the folder Sync can be seen as a good thing, but I can imagine cases where SkyTools is used before all of the files have been synced yet... this is something I have been worrying about. When I chose to put the user files in Documents that was to make them easy to find for support purposes. I would have put them into the Appdata folder but at least at the time, lesser versions of Windows hides the folder from the user. I really hate that.

As for disabling the Sync, I'm not really sure. On my main Win10 computer that I built last fall my Documents folder was too large to be stored in the cloud and that caused all sorts of bad things to happen. I could purchase more space from MS, or disable OneDrive, but when I disabled OneDrive a bunch of files went missing. This is why people hate Microsoft. Since then I've been so busy that figuring out what to do ended up on the back burner, but it is now starting to dawn on me that at least some of the problems people are experiencing may be due to the way Win10 syncs files in the Documents folder. I am thinking about finding a new location for the SkyTools folder, but I need to do some research first.
Clear skies,
Greg
