Sync'd APPDATA folders on networked computers, can/should I undo? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Was so impressed after syncing My Documents, I decided to sync AppData folders on my 2 computers ... a desktop and newly acquired laptop. After pressing [ENTER] a thought flashed through my mind that I'd made a big mistake. Is this so ... will my settings now be scrambled, on one or both computers?

    Can I undo what I've done, or is there another way to fix this potential disaster?

  • It depends on what programs you have installed. In most cases, it should not be an issue. I would, however, suggest removing the appdata folder from your Mesh. If settings are scrambled, you could try a System Restore, though I suspect that you should not have an issue.
