Thanks again Enforcer!

    Good to know the Flash drive and the RRMedia bits work, as I don't really use those two. I just use the Wireless connection.

    What you may need to do if you sync from more than one location is make sure they don't both point to the same destination folder if one or more them is set up to mirror

    I also just tried this plugin and it seems to do everything it's supposed to and show everything it's supposed to. The Indicators worked (green/red lights + folder disk/icons + buttons) -- I could not find anything wrong with it, there may even have been an issue with a specific version of RR, but it is working fine on the latest versions.

    Like I said, I think it was one of the versions around February where their was a general indicator issue.


    Good to know it all works though.

    Soo..I guess what I was shooting for was to have the flash drive "ADD" and the "Wireless Mirror" all to the same "MUSIC" folder on my HDD. You are saying this might cause a problem?

    Basically have the Wireless mirror so my Carpc is always , well, Synced"...I would like to use the Add feature for the flash because obviously I do not have my whole collection on it and it would be if I was running out the door and wanted to add some files on the way, or got them elsewhere away from home.

    Well yes, because the 'mirror' will find media that is on the destination drive, but is not on the source.

    Options

    1. Just use add for both. (disadvantage, nothing ever gets deleted)

    2. Have a Music folder and then two subfolders Main and Temp e.g. The main is mirror'd and the temp is add. Point RR to Music, it will still pick up all the media. (This is what I have had to do).

    Good suggestions, thank you...

    I think I'll just stick with the mirror, if I really need to get a new set of music on the PC i can take the 2 minutes it takes to copy the files...Plus, DFX4 has a media copy skin that allows me to essentially do the same think sync does but manually..I will certainly benefit very much from the mirror sync..Thanks again, and as always, perfect necessity driven plugins from Enforcer!

    Doesn't matter how the other music gets there, if it ain't on the mirror source, it won't be on the destination for long

    Question Automatic Syncing question

    Ok, I started skinning the RRUpd8 plugin for the DFX skin. This is a really cool plugin!

    I am having one issue however... When I have the auto sync turned on, and the auto switch to the sync screen, it keeps going to the screen when nothing is being synced.

    I have it set to 10 seconds for testing, and if I go to the main menu, in 10 seconds it switches to the sync screen. Is there a way to have it switch only if there are files actually being synced, and not just when the plugin checks?

    Here is a screen cap of what I have thus far:

    At present no.

    Will look into that for future versions.
