Tutorial: Getting Started
When you open Mindcad Gemini, your screen will look like this:
To select a folder click the "Choose Left" icon on the toolbar and your Open Panel will drop down:
I've chosen a Media folder, as shown below:
Next, click the "Choose Right" icon to select a folder to compare to the one on the left.
You can also drag a folder into Mindcad Gemini.
In this case, I've dragged in my Media backup.
When files have a red background, this indicates a mismatch. Alternatively, when files have a green background, they match.
Note that on the toolbar you can choose your match criteria. In this case, I've chosen "Size".
To take a look at an item, select it and it will turn white. Next click "Quick Look" on the toolbar to view your item, as shown below:
If you select a TV episode, film, video, or musical selection it will start to play.
If you select a text file it will open like the photo in the screenshot above.
I decide to copy an episode of Downton Abbey into my media backup.
To do so I click on the folder and its background turns white, as shown below.
If you select a folder in error, press Command-Click, and it will be deselected.
Next I click "Copy Right" on the toolbar to copy the episode of Downton Abbey from my media folder on the left side of the screen to my media backup on the right.
The background of the selected item turns yellow as it is being transferred, as shown below:
If you change your mind in the middle of a file transfer, click "Cancel All" on the toolbar.
A window will appear asking if you are sure you want to cancel, giving you the option to cancel all transfers, cancel waiting transfers, or continue the transfer, as shown below:
If you have copied something in error or simply want to remove an item from a folder, right click on it.
It will turn white and a menu will appear giving you the option to remove it or to show it in Finder.
If you change your mind before choosing one of the options, press Command-Click to close the box, and the folder will turn back to its original color.
