Any advantage to Copy Cache folder to 2nd Computer
« on: September 02, 2013, 10:43:25 AM »
Is doing this helpful instead of the second machine re-caching all the images, or not of any advantage.

I am copying the database & images from my workstation every few days to my laptop both as a backup and for
times when I want to use a portable computer. To copy the cache folders is no problem if it speeds up the 2nd machine

Thanks,  Ianr

This depends on how fast IMatch can generate cache files on the second computer, or which files you need.
If you use a copy solution (e.g. robocopy) which copies only modified files, synchronizing a cache folder is pretty quick, unless you generate thousands of new cache images daily...

Thanks Mario for the clarification, yes I use Second Copy to just Sync files, so it will be convenient to do so  ......
Imatch is an amazing program  ... going to take quite a while to cover it's features for my needs.  BTW  ... Kodak .dcr files now show up.

Thanks again  ....
