Synching data on two computers
I seem to constantly be working on two computers. I usually work on my laptop in the wee hours of the morning at the comfort of my dining room table and then I come to the office to really start my day and work on the “big computer”.
The problem always had been on how to keep the two computers synched, not an easy task. I was driving myself nuts using Window’s “briefcase”, but the folders that I store my most often used “stuff” were so big that “briefcase” didn’t always do the trick.
Low and behold, one day I’m reading the latest issue of PCWorld and there is a full page ad for a program called GoodSync (https://www.goodsync.com/).
According to the article, GoodSync was specifically designed to keep 2 or more computers synched automatically, eliminating ME.
So I downloaded the free trial – yes I like FREE TRIALS as well as you, linked the computers (choosing which computer had the “master folder” and which computer was the secondary one) and pretty much told it to “compare the folders” every time that both computers were up and running and to update which ever one had out of date files on it.
Works like a charm, even when both computers have new files that the other does not have.
I liked it so much that I spent the $29.95 for the paid version and will be synched happily ever after!
