Hello Rinat, and welcome to the forum!

usually we try not to be too rude here, but since it’s Friday night and some of us have been drinking beer, it may well happen that we burp at some point
What about to have a feature to run a "recollection", for example, you have almost the same sets of files in number of different storages, organized in different ways, i.e. the folder structures are not identical. You made the tabbles for one of them (for example, it’s a work PC). You attach another storage (or run the tabbles db on another PC) with the same files (having back to home PC?), run the feature and… voila – it links all the files from that "home" storage to your previously defined "work" tabbles sequence, even if there is no similarity in folder structure and some files are missing.
It can be done by indexing all the files (or predefined area) by a kind of hashsum, so every file in database is represented by it’s hash (I’m sure you are already using it), so it’s only a matter of time to reindex the predefinded area and to make a link again, even if the files are organized in other way.
I hope this is rather clear. If this feature already exists, please, tell me, cause I couldn’t find it 🙄
Well let’s pinpoint a couple of thing: having exactly the same structure and almost the same structure makes a huge difference, since almost the same structure would imply that some sort of AI must understand what fits and what doesn’t… and this is science-fiction 🙂
I guess that your request could be satisfied in different ways:
2) syncronization function: this has not even been discussed yet… maybe it will happen but it won’t be soon.
3) a quick and rough solution, if you have exactly the same disk structure on both computers (e.g.: on both you have all the files stored in C: and then you manually copy all the folders that need to be mirrored and place them in a mirrored position ) could be to simply manually copy the tabbles database from one pc to another, time to time. Your tabbles database is in C:Documents and Settingsyour_user_nameDocumentsTabblesDatabasescur_db.tabblesdb. Not very efficient but it works! 😉

Thanks a lot, we got that already!
