SyncToy 2.1 for multiple drives RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all, I am using SyncToy 2.1 for synching between two drives and I am wondering whether it  possible to sync three drives without causing confusion to SyncToy. In other words I want to have a master (portable hard disk drive) and sync that with a home desktop drive and an office desktop drive.

  • I have a similar combination, except one is a laptop which I take on trips.  It works fine, as long as you always update the master after making any changes on one computer, and update the other computer from the master before working on the same file there. 

    Since there is no possibility of the same file being open on both machines, I have started to look at cloud syncing, since the SyncToy is no longer being supported.  DropBox seems to be the most efficient as it only updates changes.  Just verify the synchronization is complete on both machines.
