As the license terms allow the Brain to be used on two machines (like in my notebook / workstation setting) it would be nice to have a "synchronize" function to make sure both copies of the brain are identical. I know I can use 3rd-party tools for file synchronization, but with the more complex file structure of version 4 I am never really sure if all the index files and registration data are dealt with correctly. In a large brain you will probably find an error only weeks after it occured (and has been copied to all your backups).

Greetings and thanks to the team for the extensive work in the forums.

Hi Joerg,

You're right... As I've mentioned elsewhere on the forums a 3rd party synchronizer can be used, you have to be sure that only one copy of your Brain is in use at a time and a full sync is completed before opening the other copy.

We do have plans to enable this type of functionality, but as you can imagine, this is a major undertaking...
I'm really late to the party here but I use to synch my Brains.  Works flawlessly and it's free.

And  rsync might do this in Linux:

"rsync -avz foo:src/bar/ /data/tmp"
