Software to synchronize?

I think the idea is quite exciting! So, it should probably be possible to synchronize data on multiple computers. It would solve a lot of admin problems…but does it really work? Has someone already experience with synchronizing data like that? I am much on the way and therefore seek a possibility to access my working folders, important files and e-mail from my Notebook and Desktop Pc. I already heard of a lot of Sync programs and wanted to ask for your experiences in general. Perhaps someone has a tip on how to do this the easiest way? Greetings, kk43

Hi and Welcome!

in business environments, user profiles are server based (read MS Knowledge Base for more information).
I personally use MS Sync Toy for synchronising selected folders on laptop and desktop computer. The data of both computers are synced with a folder on an external HDD, which is shared over local network.

Roaming profiles are OK for the average user but if you have lots of files logon can take some minutes. Other than that it’s not Operating System independent and you need a Windows Server somewhere.
For just syncing files I recommend SyncBack for Windows and rsync for Linux and other Unices. Works pretty good, except you shouldn’t be working with the files while syncing.

This looks promising: http://f-sync.sourceforge.net/

Didn’t know about that but looks good. It gets the chance to sync my video drive (500 GB) tonight :smiley:

Another option:

Hi!

maybe this Software is also a interesting option: http://www.syncing.net/index.php?id=301&faqid=&L=1

I´m using it to synchronize my Notbook and Desktop PC with my wifes Notbook. Works good!

Thanks! I have choosen syncing.net for my synchronization problem. As well a friend of mine reported about this software so it was a bit easier for me to decide for this way of synchronizes my data.

And even for a “greenhorn” like me it was simple to create a network and invite other computers.

I´m happy with this solution and hope there wont be any data chaos in the future!
