two left folders RRS feed

  • Question

  • In our family we use two separate laptops for storing and viewing pictures. Most of the pictures in the two laptops are the same. How do I set up sync toy to synchronise both laptops to the same right folder? Will it work if I give the same name to the right folder in both laptops?

  • There is no forum for Sync Toy. This forum is for Live Mesh Beta - www.mesh.com

    However, yes, you can specify the pair of folders to sync in Sync Toy no matter what the top level folder names are. Basically, the configuration happens when you specifiy the path in the left and right folder dialogs and decide if you wish to sync, echo, etc. The details of how this is done can be found in the SyncToy help files, including the details on what each option means for copying files in one or both directions.
