Hey guys,

I want to copy my Daz3D content folder from Windows7 onto my Mac. I know the folder on my Mac is called ../My Library. Inside the “My Library” folder I can see pretty much the same structure that I have in my Windows 7 content folder.

At one point I remember seeing a post about doing something like this but i could not find it again. Last time when I got help (from fixmypcmike), I was using an external drive for my content. That way both my Mac and my PC could get to the same files. Over time I found out that the external drive setup was not the right thing for me. I experienced bad performance issues. I decided therefore to install everything on my local Windows drive and then copy it over to the mac.

To make a short story long :) my question is this ......
(Since the Mac archiver cannot merge folders) Can I CUT of the “My Library” folder on my Mac, PASTE it into my Windows 7 desktop, merge the content of my Windows 7 Daz folder with the “My Library” folder on the desktop, bring the merged folders back into the Mac?

Anyone tried something like this?

Thanks,
Bryon

That should work, as far as I know - though you will of course need write access to the remote computer from the active computer to be able to cut or paste..
