One of the things that really caught my interest is that SyncToy allows one to set up folder pairs. So I have it set up to three different foler pairs right now. I have been keeping dng, jpegs and tiffs in independent folders/drives and now with just a couple of clicks they can be synced. I think I have heard that you can have the program run at fixed times, but I have not seen how one does that as i think I will poke around in it a bit in the future.
I di think some of the content in the mircosoft prophoto forum were interesting. (www.microsoft.com/prophoto
