    Hello Good mac people!



    i have begun syncing files between my xp workstation and my xp partition on my macbook and it's easy and fine with a windows program called allway sync.


    but i realized that it would be easier for me if i could sync between my xp workstation and my osx macbook! are there any recommended solutions?


    thanks,
    r.


    p.s. the prefered method of syncing files on these two computers is through an ethernet connection, which i have already established....

    it is sometimes frustrating finding the perfect program

    ... it is sometimes frustrating finding a program that will do what you want it to do....


    i've tried something like... five different programs. the closetest i get to what i want is AASync, but it just doesn't seem to work reliably!

    i just want folders to be synced, a small handful of folders to be synced, with a one button press once configured. argh! Allway sync for mac!


    anything!

    folder synchonizer, folder share, grrrrrrrrrrr.

    I SPEND AN HOUR AND A HALF WITH A PROGRAM CALLED "FILE SYNCHRONIZATION" AND IT'S ALL GOING WELL.......


    ....... up until i disconnect from my workstation, reconnect, and i have to relink all the bloody files.



    this is to easy to be this hard.


    this is rediculous.


    PLEASE GIVE ADVICE!!! preferably besides "don't get so worked up dude, it's okay!"

    anyone use alway sync on pc? it's so darn easy! this is rare...
