    I'm in search of a way that makes it possible to auto sync all files that we want to be.
    For example. AddressBook, we work with several macs but they all have different addresses. Well, not all some are the same but that's the point.
    I want something that tracks this and if 'it' finds something that is not in one of address books that he automatically syncs it.
    Also when something is changed in one of an other, that he automatically changes it on every mac.

    Does there exist anything like this?

    Thank you in advance.

    ChronoSync or rsync maybe?


    Maybe have a look at Advanced Search to find similar threads:

    You might consider something besides syncing if you have several users and computers. Syncing is not necessarily the best solution if you want everyone to have access to the same info. You may be much better off with a server/client setup. Syncing is relatively complex, and if many people are messing with the same file it can be a disaster.

    The problem you are having with Address Book is a good example. You can't simply "sync" the Address Book database on a Mac across lots of Macs. It's far easier and safer to use a server, and the simplest way is to use a cloud service like Google. You set up an account there and sync with it. And there are others, like Yahoo.

    If you don't want to store stuff in the cloud, then try Lion Server. It's cheap, and has a contact server so changes to any contact info is not only pushed to your other Macs, but also to mobile devices. Same with sharing files and calendars. And it makes it easier to manage the other macs if you do that.
