comment Synchronize USB hard drive between Mac and PC
750GB, yes. My bad. And I do use Dropbox for all word documents and PDFs etc. However, I do need to keep in sync all my photos (about 150GB) which are often 30MB per file. It gets a bit much for clouds...

Compression! Of course! That's the solution, thank you. Now I'm on my way...

That's all really helpful, thanks so much. Is there any way to include the execution rights within the shell script itself (so that if I email it to someone, it works straight away without them having to run chmod u+x ?

I'm using gmail. If I use the Console force Script Editor to open the downloaded file I get this error message: Unable to read the dictionary of the application or extension because it is not scriptable.

I followed the second method and saved it to my desktop and it runs perfectly. However, if I try emailing it to myself and then opening the downloaded it file it gives the error message that I can't open it because "the Classic environment is no longer supported". Any idea how to solve this?

Thanks really neat. Thank you. Is there any way for the quit command to execute once the speaking has finished rather than based just on a timer?

Oh man, that's perfect. Thanks so much. The extra steps you mention about waiting then closing Terminal would be great to know...
