sync from PC to extHD to 2nd PC RRS feed

  • Question


    I regularly carry a "pocket" external hard drive between home and work.  I'd like to sync a folder on all 3 locations.  If I set up one sync topic from home-to-external, and a second sync topic from work-to-external, will this work correctly?  I could make changes in any of the 3 locations.  Would one sync topic ever get confused or lose sight of its status after the other topic makes an update?

  • Yes you can do this and SyncToy will work in this scenario. Just set up two folder pairs ( one on each actual computer at home and work). Kick off a sync each time you plug the external hard drive in. Be careful to pick the actualy synchronization option that you need for each.
