Our client is operating some web sites for their client, who hosts the web servers. The third party wants the repository to push code to the live sites but our client doesn't want to give them the source. Odd, I know.

The Commit will start with an Add if the repository folder is empty.

Ok thanks I will look into that. I didnt know i could start at a higher level. Can I just do one folder then? (VS with the web deployment add on puts all builds under the same parent directory.

Really I just need a basic one way sync. :)

I played some last night with copying to a second folder and syncing that which seems to work ok too.
