A little explanation is necessary so please bear with me.

Comicrack saves information to the NTFS secondary stream. It is one of it's greatest features....that i never used! I knew it was there but could never get it to work, and has frustrated me for years (literally). I could never figure out why mine never worked like it was suppose to, until now.

Windows Indexing is something that I have always turned off, simply for the speed nothing more. Don't know why it didn't occur to me earlier that this would be affecting Comicrack, but I tried turning it on today to run some speed tests on a new drive. And that's when I discovered Comicrack was working like it should be.

So as long as indexing is turned on for Windows, on all drives that you are copying your comics to, the secondary stream should follow. If it is turned off for either drive, you will lose all secondary stream data.

This was one of those facepalm moments :woohoo:
