I have 1 powerbook and a G4 running OS.9.1. I enter new data in the palm desktop of each computer or write mail and enter address (with Eudora) in the 2 computers.
Now, how am I going to synchronize the files of the 2 computers without having everything in duplicate. File synchronization does not do the job. It only copies the latest modified file to the other, but you loose the data you have entered in the computer that has been copied to.
Any good suggestion ?
Lots of love,

Avesh

Check out synchronization from Qdea. It is better than the synchronization which is part of OS 9. I am not sure it will do what you want but it might.

thanks for the info Crazycylon, but it DOES NOT WORK.
Synchronization from Qdea does the same as the other programs. It copies the latest file to the older one. So you looses the changes you made to the older one.
I need a program that does the same as the hotSync does bettween the palm and the computer, it keeps any new data that you have put in the palm or the computer and mixes them into a new file.
Any new idea?
