    SpiderOak 'Merge Devices' ?

    My Win7 laptop has needed a complete software reinstallation.

    Previously a few selected folders were uploaded as device LAPTOP_OLD (>60GB, predominantly Retrospect Backup files).

    But SpiderOak requires that the reinstalled laptop is registered as a new device: LAPTOP_NEW

    Does anyone know how to avoid uploading another 60GB for LAPTOP_NEW ? (identical to LAPTOP_OLD) TIA.

    Dave.

    Can you rename LAPTOP_OLD in SpiderOak to something other like LAPTOP_OLD_1? Since LAPTOP_OLD has already been used the Notebook/Laptop is being identified as a different device and something needs changing.

    I think one possibility might be via the SpiderOak Hive - although I don't want to synchronise the folders across all devices.
