I use a portable drive to keep files synchronized between my home and office computers. The problem is that when Daylight Savings Time arrives the files on the portable drive get out of sync with the desktop computers by one hour. This doesn't necessarily cause a problem with my synchronization program, because the time difference apparently doesn't change the files' CRC numbers (if that's what they're called). I wouldn't have expected that, but it apparently seems to be so. Still, once Daylight Savings Time strikes, in the file attributes the creation and modification dates of *all* of the files on the portable drive become one hour "older" than the ones on the desktops. In the fall, when Standard Time comes back, the converse happens. Because there are so many files (well over 100,000), were I to synchronize them by time of modification rather than by CRC, it would take forever to get them back in sync. Also, I'm concerned that some day this "de-synchronizing" of the file times could cause confusion leading to a mistake on my part if the time of creation or modification of a file ever became important for some reason. I'd appreciate any suggestions on how to keep the times coordinated on these files. Leaving the portable drive connected to a desktop overnight doesn't do it. Thanks. -- Bob S.
