    Hey,
    Every time I do some homework, I forget to print/upload it, so I thought "I've got an iDisk, why not use that?". So I did a Google, and found "Versions", it confused me.
    Is there any other way, any other software, or a way of you telling me how to use "Versions" to automatically upload/update an entire FOLDER, and the files inside?
    Please no "Just remember" ;) The point is I can't :(
    Thanks
    Joseph Duffy

    if you are wanting to upload to an idisk, you can just mount it through the finder or use a utility like Cyberduck. Versions is a mac Subversion client, and probably not suited for what you want to do.

    But that won't automaticly upload a file in say my "Documents" folder, if I were to edit or create a file? I've used Cyberduck for FTP, but didn't like it, I need something a bit like Tortoise SVN for Windows.
    Thanks

    So somehow you need something to scan your folder and sync the changes?

    I know it's asking for alot, but I've got a fairly powerful Mac, so I don't mind background constant stuff, even if it scanned every 5 mins. If Tortuous SVN can check servers, why can't a Mac one check local folders?
    I use my Laptop offline a bit, and need it to updated online when I get back, I may have 10/15 files being changes offline, all in different sub-folders, it's getting hard :(
    Thanks

    Cyberduck does have a synchronize command, and you might get lucky hooking that up to a crontab with an applescript. But in reality I dont know of any tools of the top of my head that can do that.

    I'll have a shot at it, thanks for the help. Do you know if CyberDuck has an "Addon" type thing? So I could release one ;)
    Thanks again

    P.s If anyone else might know one, please, still feel free to post :)
