    I'm a fully paid-member of .Mac and it has been a god-send since I work both at home and in my office.

    I was wondering if it is possible to Sync particular folders between my two Macs (much like it does with Bookmarks, Address Book etc.) I am forever having to transfer any quotes I do on my home mac to my iDisk, then to my work mac, often duplicating and missing quote numbers etc. It would be a lot easier if there was a way to Sync my two Document folders.

    Is this possible?

    Thanks in advance.

    You can certainly do it with programs like Synk and Chronosync. Just set up a sync profile and schedule as with any other set of folders. Or sync to a thumbdrive if your docs folder isn't too big.

    You can find pretty much all apps at www.versiontracker.com

    Cheers,

    QuickSync requires a serial number to do anything more than 40 files :rolleyes:

    AFAIK iSync does not deal with file and folder backups. For apps I always look on Macupdate, here are the links for Chronosync and Synk
