Actually when you boil it all down, depending upon just how you
interface your laptop to your main computer, you could do what you
want with a couple simple clips such as:
^!Dos xxcopy "laptop" "main" /clone
Where ^!Wait simply tells NoteTab to hold its horses until the backup
is done, and even that is optional.
And of course in my above example "laptop" and "main" would have to
be replaced with the actual paths to each computer, but essentially
that's all it would take.
If you try this however, do a lot of testing on dummy files first.
xxcopy does exactly what it's told to do, so you'll want to be sure
you have your commands right.
