    G'day all,

    I'm wandering about the following.

    If i were to buy an USB pendrive (let's say 512mb), is there a way (read: an application/tool) which would automatically synconise it with my documents on my mac?

    So i wouldn't have to worry about where my newest documents were...

    Anybody heard of such a tool?

    Thanks in advance for any information.

    I don't have time just now to check out any of these, but versiontracker.com throws up these results - let me know how you get on.

    Cheers,

    Sorry to dig up an ancient thread but it's most relevant to what I need.

    Does anybody know of an application or Automator actions that will automatically sync my USB pen drive with the Documents folder on my Mac?

    The list of applications celaurie posted above are all for Windows.

    I've also found this Automator action but I've tried it and it doesn't work (see the comments)...

    Hope somebody has a solution, apologies for breathing life into a well and truly dead thread.

    Thanks in advance,

    Alex

    This will do the trick i guess (but have your stick plugged in all the time!)

    Thanks, I'll give that a try and see how good it is.

    If you have any more suggestions or options, I'd be grateful if you could let me know.

    Thanks again,

    Alex
