A really simple question RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone.  I have a really simple question (that I hope is not a stupid question).  I need to sync 1 folder, with many sub folders and documents, on my desktop with my laptop.  Is SyncToy the program to do that?  All I need is to have new or changed documents in the one folder on my desktop automatically be added/changed on my laptop, and sometimes the other way around.

    Everything I read here makes it seem like it is, but I can't find a user guide to be sure.

    I was looking at mesh and livesync, but those seem to focus on the cloud, which I don't need.

    I don't need anything grand, just a simple way to sync.

  • Geesh, no replies?  Yes, I would say that Synctoy is exactly what you need.  I have used it for a while, and with one recent glitch, have had no problems (Synctoy is trying to update files that were only accessed but not changed - my only problem)
