In domain environment, Roaming Profiles are used for such tasks: A roaming user profile is a concept in the Windows NT family of operating systems that allows users with a computer joined to a Windows Server domain to log on to any computer on the same network and access their documents and have a consistent desktop experience, such as ...

Dropbox uses 'delta sync' which means only modified portions of files are downloaded/uploaded, instead of transferring entire files every time they’re changed. However, the Android app DropSync does not support delta sync. The reason this doesn't work with a TrueCrypt container (or any other encryption program worth it's salt) or some disk imaging solutions ...

@ Nreilingh: I mean't that at least a byte has changed, not necessarily just one. With what I do with these images and put into them, surely more than a byte is being changed. But I can also change only a byte with a hex editor, then my DB app detects the change in seconds and tries to reupload the entire file. I sync lots of files from my phone to DB, all ...

If you want to save the corrected file for future use, instead of single shot streaming/watching then you could try OpenShot video editor in combination with Audacity (both available for Linux). Or if you're fan of commandline have a look at this:http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2074181. The basic steps are: - separate audio from video - use ...

There are a few ways that I'm thinking that can solve your problem. One is by resorting to a third party program which basically does what you want. It will encrypt anything that goes to Dropbox but requires a client to be installed on your system to be able to access your data. ...

It's pretty simple using Windows Movie Maker : Add your background. Add a duration to your background (duration the sound track). Set your video title (song name). Import song to the video. Add subtitles for lyrics. Reference : http://techsultan.com/creating-lyrical-video-windows-movie-maker/

Dropbox uses data deduplication. For this to work efficiently, everything needs to be encrypted with the same key. Otherwise, even if multiple people had the same file, it would have a different ciphertext for everyone, making deduplication impossible. This key is of course known only to Dropbox. Still, Dropbox could, theoretically, read all your data. ...

I'm in the process of dealing with this myself. I had 260,000 bookmarks, the vast majority of which were "phantoms" -- folders with no name, many duplicates, etc. Every time I started Chrome, it would consume many gigabytes of RAM, to the point of really impacting my productivity. I decided to delete all bad bookmarks, but I had to wipe out the cloud copy ...

Ok, so I fixed that by opening Google favicon directly, refreshing the page and then adding Google home page to the bookmarks. Apparently Chrome sync each time you add a new bookmark. And later I also discover chrome://sync/ which allows you to manage all you sync data including favicons, so it probably would've helped me to.

You might be able to use symbolic links to accomplish this, but make sure the drive is plugged in before Google Drive is started. Otherwise there are many sync programs you can use, such as the free DSynchronize that can act as a companion piece.

You could have 2 folders, say Folder1 & Folder2 both shared. Then use a program like FreeFileSync's Realtime Sync to copy changes from one directory to the other. The program is rather straightforward to use and will copy across a file 10 seconds after it is edited (by default).

8.1.3 no longer allows offline syncing. Instead, you must be connected to the Internet and logged into iCloud to sync contacts. I learned this by troubleshooting similar issue with Apple Care.

Three tools that I’ve used in the past with great results. All are for Windows. None are open source nor for Linux. Picasa: You just load up your images, then go into Experimental features to find the duplicates VisiPics: This tool scans for exact duplicates at its most restrictive setting. You can “loosen” the setting to find similar images. For example, ...

ImageMagick should be able to make some hashes to compare images, but it's more like a toolkit you'd have to spend some time learning how to use & create your own custom answer that does exactly what you want, rather than a "here's your answer pasted in". But even Google's "similar images" is far from perfect, and the best way to really detect duplicates ...

Sounds like the tasks are caches locally instead of updating in exchange. Can you try from your laptop to go to the account settings and on the email tab choose your email account and click change, then under the server section try to untick the used cached exchange mode option and finish, then restart your outlook. This way instead of caching all the data ...

Had trouble sync-ing audible book to my iPod. I could get the book into iTunes but would not synch from there - kept getting error message "…will not play on this iPod." Wasted HOURS online thinking I had to find a file converter from AA to mp3 ...…rip from a virtual CD….so many posts. Dumb. All the posts I read were wrong. Just download the audible book ...

Another generic solution for alternate use cases is to use a x windows like mouse behavior. You can use wizmouse to do that. What I do is, use the mouse to scroll one window and the keyboard to scroll the other. i.e. Launch the Wizmouse app keep the active focus on the window you wish to control via the keyboard. move the mouse to the inactive window. ...

timidity version 2.14.0 has an option --preserve-silence which prevents it from dropping the initial rests.

There is no such extension/plugin/app, also it is a joke to trust 3rd party with all your data(bookmarks,history,extensions,passwords,etc..).

You can get all your Firefox profiles with their tabs, addons, chached data, etc to sync if you move the folder to a Dropbox like program then symbolic link it. To do this, move your Windows folder from %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox to a new folder in Dropbox, say %USERPROFILE%\Dropbox\SymLinks\Firefox, while Firefox is closed. Then run mklink \J ...

Even Private URL from Google Calendars comes in as Read Only into Outlook client. My recommendation is to use Android or iOS for full edit of ActiveSync and Google Calendar. Don't do it from Outlook client, it will create a mess because Outlook does not fully support iCal & CalDAV API.

Dropbox works by splitting the file into pieces (like Bittorrent). I don't know if the iOS or Android apps work the same, but Dropbox will just verify the split 4MB file pieces are identical and not upload it again. The .IMG file is most likely changing the content enough so that the file pieces do not match the previous upload.

Based on my experiences with Megasync for Mac 1.0.39: When you disconnect the drive: Megasync will stop syncing folders that were on that drive. No files are removed from the local machine or from the cloud. When the drive is connected again: Megasync will not enable syncing automatically. You'll have to manually enable syncing of folders on the external ...

You are looking in the wrong place maybe i found that they were not under bookmarks but under Starred Items in Chrome on mobile. I thought they were not synced but they were in a diffrent local.
