When comparing, I got dozens of files showing up as newer, only due to the change from DST to standard time. Any quick fix?

Can you explain what you mean with it?

Sure. In "synchronize/Compare" mode, the program looks at the time stamps on the files in both directories to preserve the newer file.

I use FC to synch files on a home computer to a jump drive, and then to synch again to a work computer.

I compared the files this morning, for the first time since changing the clock.

While last week they had the same time, this week they showed a difference of one hour, and indicated the need to synchronize.

In truth, the time stamps were identical, but for some reason (because one computer runs Vista and one runs XP??) they show a difference of an hour and a need to synch.

You need a option "Ignore 1 hour time delay". There is not this option yet. Now you can use the function File->Attributes/Timestamp: Move Modified Timestamp. You can move e.g. the timestamp of your files on the jump drive.

I took the cowardly way out and let it synch all those files.
