Okay - well, I got the command-line version of unison.  I am playing with the flags now.  It seems to take forever because it checks every file (some people have big "My Documents" folders).

At the end it gives the nice little output that seems accurate about what has changed - I just wish it was faster -

Going to try to turn the -fastcheck option to true and see what plays out - for now my options are:

unison "%userprofile%\My Documents" x:\%username% -contactquietly -batch -prefer "%userprofile%\My Documents"


Okay adding -fastcheck true made it take 30 seconds for a 4.6 Gig folder instead of 4+ minutes.


And it didn't seem to miss the changes I made.  So this is what I'll stick with

Thanks again guys for all your help and suggestions.
