Seeking some clarification:

  1. I'm using direct mode. When I run git annex sync --content on repo A, all files get copied to repo B, but they remain hidden under .git/annex/objects. Is there a way to automatically put them in repo B's working tree, without having to go to repo B and run git annex sync there as well? (I'm sure I saw that happen earlier, but not anymore?)

  2. I have two PCs and a portable HD. There are git-annex repos on PC_1 and USB_HD, with each other listed under git remote. Now I want to set up git-annex on PC_2. Is it okay to use the same repo path (~/Videos/) on both PCs? I'm concerned that it would confuse the USB_HD repo greatly, as it would end up having two "remotes" with identical paths.
