    Default Which apps will really *synchronize* a PB folder with a remote ftp or webdav server?

    I can see lots of file explorers, ftp clients etc. that announce "sync" when they at best do it one way only.
    Within this crowd, i may have missed what I am searching now: a way to sync two ways, like, in two places the most recent version of a file replaces the older one, if possible with some strategy to handle conflict cases (like two files both having been changed).
    In the PC/mac world this kind of stuff is not simple, and you find apps that address it seriously, some specific to a given connection (e. g. ftp), some even dedicated to syncing.

    Is there such an app for the PB?
    I'd accept even a "minimalist" way of doing (not addressing conflicts), even via a single connection (ftp, webdav...) but I do need something automatic. 'take it and move it' is not enough...

    TIA!

    Probably not the method you are looking for, but I just use a program on my PC called Second Copy to sync my Playbook at night over Wifi file sharing. That way I always have an up to date copy of my Playbook contents.

    Eh, that's a good idea anyway, and one I didn't have --I definitely overlooked wifi sharing here, which helps shifting the sync burden to pcs and macs where it is a very mature domain. Thank you!
