Even though this is an older thread, I'd like to add a solution I devised that works well. I wanted to run a script or batch file whenever a shutdown or restart was initiated, but I didn't want to use Group Policies Shutdown Scripts function. The reason for this was pretty in depth, but I basically needed to run a script before certain services were closed. ...

Task Scheduler is limited in its ability to schedule a task at shutdown. A similar question was asked on Stack Overflow (how-to-schedule-a-task-to-run-when-shutting-down-windows), and the answers there describe several methods other than using the Task Manager, including the Group Policy Editor method, which is described in detail and might be a better way ...

As far as I know, if you have files with same name/location but different content you have to explicitly select the action you want to do with those files before synchronization. For example, select all files and hit CTRL+L, which will copy all the conflicting files from left to right panel after you hit Synchronize (which seems to be what you need, given ...

It was because I had the option "ignore date" checked! When this option is checked, you must do what @Bohuslav is suggesting, i.e. manually add these files to synchronization. But when I uncheck this option, it works as expected, i.e. the newer files are synchronized automatically!

I have a Synology NAS (DS413) and they have a "package" made by Synology called "Cloud Sync" and it allows you to sync files to/from Dropbox (and Google Drive, Baidu Cloud, OneDrive, Box, and Hubic for now). CloudSync can acts like a 3rd DropBox client and simply sync back and forth as per normal. This may be of interest (from their help file): Default ...

If you stopped syncing the folder to dropbox months ago, then dropbox should not have a copy after then, right? The only copy on dropbox should be months old, isn't that how dropbox should work? I think you could check the web interface for dropbox and that should show everything, in case it's still there, regardless of your current hard drive setup. And ...

If you're using Windows, you can take advantage of Libraries. Just create a new Library and add the "MediumeMedley" folders from each drive to it. You can then leverage the Windows Search feature in the top right of Windows Explorer as well as take advantage of all native Explorer functionality. Here I've created a "Foo Folders" Library and added "Foo" ...

You didn't specify the OS. So, sure, that should work just fine by default on Linux (as long as you stick to the open-source graphics drivers, not proprietary ones); I've seen this done. Same with most BSDs. Windows could deal with this too, except for the activation issues when the CPU & motherboard change. But Windows To Go can be carried in a USB ...

Turn your laptop off for the night (or for at least 6 hours). When you turn it on in the morning, go into BIOS before you boot Windows and check the clock. (Windows automatically syncs the clock as soon as it connects to the Internet, which also corrects the RTC in BIOS.) If it has lost time, the battery is probably dying (some laptops use a "coin" battery ...
