I don't know if you use !Organizer, but this has recently been 
provided with a "clone" facility, to keep two or more copies of its 
data in sync. It can be used either by attempting to clone at the 
start-up of the recipient copy, or can be done manually which is the 
way I use it.

My 2p worth is to recommend doing cloning of copies of StrongED in 
much the same way, so that Fred's point 3 above would be irrelevant if 
a manual clone is being done.
