I'd like to help but I have 40 gigabytes worth of tables and an additional 5 GB of library files. There is no place I know where I can post that much. I could select some tables but I don't know what library files go with the tables so I'd have to just give you the full 5 GB and I don't know where I could post even that much. Also, I have revised many tables and I am not sure you would like the changes.

I do recommend SyncBackFree that I use to do backups to a portable USB drive. I have created 25 profiles to do backups and I have used it several times. I have never seen a need to upgrade to their paid version because the free version works so well. The download site is:

https://www.2brightsparks.com/freeware/index.html

I have figured out a way to name the destination folders so you know where the files came from. If the file came from "C:\Games\Future Pinball\Tables\", I name the folder "C-Games-Future Pinball-Tables". You can't use colons or back slashes in the name of a folder but using the dashes does work.

I probably have quite a few library files that I don't use. You might consider saving your tables and library files in subfolder of "Tables". You can name the subfolder with the same as the name of the table and add all the versions of the table to it that use the library files. I did it that way for the X-Men table because it has a library file that has the exact same name as a library file for "World Cup Soccer". If I had it to do over again, I might set it up that way.

I'm sorry you lost your files,

George

You can send them to me. I'd like to see what you have done. Have you changed all 200 tables?

God no, this is only a collection of sorts. That reminds me... i did change some things to libraries. Here's the thing: some tables have libraries with same names so they overwrite each other, what I did is open lets say tableA.fpt with a HexEditor, and replaced all instances of LibraryA.fpl to let's say TableLibraryA.fpl so they got new unique names to that table. The names had to be the same length and are thus easily overwritten, this works fine and you have no more libraries which are called music.fpl for 2 or more different tables. I also did tweaks to many tables where things annoyed me graphics wise, but the tweaks are all minor and are probably overlooked by everyone who isn't such as a nitpick as I am hehe (that F14 table I tweaked is a good example)

I have had problems with that myself. The X-Men and World Cup Soccer each have a library file with the same name, "sounds.fpl". I added a subfolder named "X-Men" to the "Tables" folder and saved the different versions of the X-Men table there and all the X-Men libraries are saved there as well. Then I left World Cup Soccer in the "Tables" folder along with all my other tables and saved the library files for it along with all the other files in the "Libraries" folder where all my other library files are stored. It works without having to change either table.

By the way, thanks for posting the links above. I am downloading now.

Everything downloaded perfectly. It is the first time I have seen a fpRam editor.
I'm curious how you manage to keep track of which library files go with each table. I have a huge library folder and no clue as to which table they are used.
