Alan, thanks for sharing that. That sounds great and potentially time-saving.

There is a free software service that I use that you and others might
find useful.  It is called "Foldershare" and you can find it at

If your computers are on the Internet all the time, this works well,
but it can also be used even if you only periodically go online.  I
have one folder of personal ado files on my two computers, one at work
and one at home.  Foldershare watches both folders and updates files
as they are changed.  I no longer worry about synchronization,
carrying flash cards, diskettes, zip drives, etc.  There are lots of
options about how to synchronize and it is very fast even with large
files--I keep my data files in another folder and they are upto date
as well.  For example, if I enter "update ado, update"  both of my
computers are updated.  This also give me a backup o fmy files
automatically since they exist on two computers simultaneously.

One other feature, although I don't use it, is to share folders with
others--people you wiork with, family members, etc. can be invited to
share (with all sorts of read/write options) any folder you want.
