Online File & Folder Sync Between Windows XP/Vista PC's With Syncplicity
Since I use a desktop PC at the office and a laptop at home I wanted a nice easy way to synchronise certain files between the two PC’s. You’d think this was easy but it’s actually pretty hard to do which is why so many people resort to emailing files to themselves.
Microsoft has a system called Windows Live Sync but it only works if both computers are online in much the same way as the excellent Log Me In does. I tried Dropbox but it gives you a new folder that you can drag content into when you want to sync it up rather than just syncing all the folders you want.
When you install the application you simply select the folders you want to share and it automatically synchronises them with the Syncplicity servers and your other computers. The files are also available by logging in to the website so you can get them from a public PC as well.
I won’t go as far as to recommend this product for backing up your important business data, we recommend Backup Technology for that, but if you want an easy (and free) way to sync between 2 computers you really can’t go far wrong.
