Hi, I have 2 questions that I need to find out before I can setup my SyncDocs.
I am thinking about using selective sync to keep my folder structure intact, but I am worried that this will create lots of duplicates in Google Docs when I buy a new PC and put the contents from PC 1 to PC 2 in the future.
So to answer this, I have formulated these questions:
Question 1: How does SyncDocs identify unique files? Is it through file name or some hidden unique identifier? So if I copy my files from PC 1 onto PC 2 (either manually or through a backup program called "Mozy Home", then turn on selective sync on the same folders on PC 2 , will SyncDocs recognize that those folders already exist in Google Docs, or will it create duplicates?
Question 2: If I buy a new PC 2 which is clean and install SyncDocs, will it automatically add the folders that are included in "Selective Sync" in the right places in PC 2 (so not in the main My Google Docs folder but actually in the same places those folders exist on PC 1)?
Question 3: If Question 1 and 2 doesn't seem to satisfy my requirement, how would you recommend moving from PC 1 to PC 2 without creating lots of duplicates and keeping my file structures intact outside of my Google Docs folders?
Thanks so much for the help, Syncdocs is really helping me organize the mess of having duplicate structures in local vs. docs, but the "moving from PC 1 to PC 2 without creating duplicates and messing up the structure" keeps bugging me...
