Rsync is still handy for Vixen users  ;)

Wow.  The compression is amazing and I also like the append to end of playlist option.

Question (apologize if this is answered elsewhere):  Does the FPP Connect save a local copy of the sparse files on the PC after creating?  I know I can backup each FPP, but I think maybe it would be easier to save a local copy as the FPP connect creates/transmits.

Thanks so much Dan for all your continued hard work.
