Thanks very much--you may indeed be correct.

In fact, I'd already started *some* pruning, going through and deleting
some stuff that was obviously just trash, both to save disk space (here
and on the server) and to simplify.

I'd been thinking that maybe I need to somehow determine what version of
something is "fresher" via a manual approach.

Example: blahfiles/myfile.odt on PC and blahfiles/myfile.odt on laptop,
and I have to simply decide if the later DATE is most current, or use some
other way to see what's the file to start with.

I was half tempted to just blow everything away on the laptop and then
sync, but that'd be very bad as I know I have docs on there that I edited
on the road and haven't brought back in-house.

Anyway, that may be the only real way to proceed. I hate it when I make a
mess and then have to clean it up...

Thanks much,
