Syncing Your Data Across Multiple Computers
Like many of you, I have more than one computer – in my case, a laptop and a netbook. Copying files over my network or via USB to try to keep files I’m working on was starting to become a pain, so I started looking for other solutions. My new favorite services are ones where you can specify files that you want to be available to you everywhere – on all your computers, as well as via the web. What’s great about this is that there’s multiple backups of your data, which is always a great thing to have.
I’ve personally been using DropBox, which creates a folder on your computers where you simply drag and drop the files you want to stay synchronized across all your computers – it really couldn’t be easier. I’ve been testing and using DropBox extensively with my currently active documents, and also things I just want to have handy on all my computers (frequently used documents, RoboForm password data, etc.). It’s been AWESOME, and it’s free for up to 2 gigs of data.
