I'm not afraid, i'm simply considering that.

I've the same trouble with offline file and folders; microsoft are so
dumb that if i move a portable system with some 'syncronized' files
from one branch to another, and on both exist the same share, offline
files and folder start simply to syncronize total different directory
trees. ;(((

The idea for a signature it is not mine, i taken from unison:


where some sort of 'peer identification' is used.
