    Personally, of all the computer-based data I've lost in the past 20 years, the majority of it can be attributed to "human error".

About a year ago, Windows decided that about half-a-dozen of my music files were part of a corrupt section on the disk, so it daleted them to fix up the disk. The next time I ran Microsoft "Synctoy", rather than copy them from the backup, it was going to make the disks match by deleting the good copy from the backup! Needless to say I manually restored them before letting Synctoy have its way with synchronization. Since then, I've been using "Allway Sync" instead, it seems to be much more robust, but I still check the "preview" after it analyzes the changes before I turn it loose to actually do the synchronization.
    I evaluated SyncToy and quit using it. There's a limit to the number of files and you get no warnings or errors when it is exceeded. AllwaySync doesn't have this limitation. SyncToy is free and AllwaySync is $20. $20 is nothing when you've lost a bunch of files because SyncToy didn't back them up.

    Smile Beginning with a basic setup

    First SB seems very interesting, as you can see. It stands in the kitchen (where we spend a lot of time).
    Second setup will be a Transporter in the big system ; stay tuned !
