In Response To: Re: alt-duplicate in ztw (Mathias Winkler)

What I have in mind is that the alt-=duplicate function duplicates the source directory/subdirectories to the target exactly, using only logged subdirectories and only files showing (per entered filespecs), and NOT recopying any files already present on the target unless they're older, and deleting any files on the target that are not on the (deleted from the) source. All this leaves the source alone. There could be some options, like for the deleting of any current target files not on the source, and maybe even the OLDER could be offered with an alternate NO option. I hope that's clear. Basically I use ztw to copy whole directories to a zxip drive or network drives. This would make this process SUPER quick and easy.
