For the purposes of this example, the missing files are missing on the satellite and will be copied from the master to the satellite.

Step 1:
Satellite: In the File Manager, select the Copy Updated Files To ... button. Select a folder that is shared between the computers or is on an external drive or memory stick.

All files in the target folder will be removed.

The selected folder may not be a top-level folder (e.g. V:\Music). It must be a second-level folder or lower (e.g. V:\Music\master). Select Start.
