I don’t know, Nico, I am a real novice at this. Your first answer didn’t
help because I didn’t know the ramifications of what I was trying to do.

The original data, from just six months ago, was about 27 Gb, which took a
very long time to upload from my home computer to my remote server.  Since
the only hotcopy, done shortly after the repo was loaded, there has been
very little change, so if I could start with the hotcopy and somehow synch
my working copy without pushing 27 Gb again, life would be better.

Howver, it sounds like there is no way around a massive upload again :-(

Thanks.
