Are you using any cloud storage (Dropbox, Google, MS, Box) on that directory?

The real issue lies in the difference between file systems. Most memory sticks come formatted as FAT32 because that is the most efficient use of space. However, FAT32 timestamps only have an accuracy to the nearest 2 seconds. NTFS which is used by all

Windows OS since XP has an accuracy to 100 nanoseconds. Even if you are using the same PC to run both To Go and RM there can be a difference in the timestamps. One possible solution is to format the memory stick to use the NTFS file system before installing To Go. For small/old memory sticks this reduced the amount data that can be stored, however with the continued increasing availability of large (up to1TB) at  a reasonable price I have thrown away all my Memory sticks that are less than 8GB. They were probably reaching the end of their life anyway.

SQLite has a limitation of 1 Billion  records which can be any combination of people, sources, events, media, etc. There are people on this forum who have in excess of 200,000 people and seem to manage ok. One of the keys that I have found and use extensively is the use of Groups which enables me to concentrate on subsets of people that need research. I also use color coding to assist in identifying people that are missing categories  of information.
