    My boss has a Macbook Pro that he uses here at work, and keeps an iMac at home, and stores files on both of these systems and on the Windows fileserver here at work. He'd like to sync all three, with true three-way synchronization, without using an external service like MobileMe or Windows Live Foldershare. I think he's got around 20 gb of data to sync, total, but only a couple hundred mb will change, at most, on any given day.

    Has anyone run into this before? Google turned up a fairly complex solution involving rsync and a fourth server running FreeBSD, but I was hoping for something a little more user-friendly (and admin-friendly, in this case).

    Thanks in advance.

    Right now it is limited to 2GB, but they will be launching a pay service to increase it very soon to 50gb @ $100/year.

    I use it and it is completely amazing.

    I'm afraid that qualifies as an outside service. This is sensitive data and it can't leave our corporate network.

    ChronoSync could help to synchronize the two Macs over a network.

    Maybe it can even read/write to a Windows File System over the network.
