    So i have a trial .Mac account, I just had a quick question. I have 3 macs, and I need to synchronize a certain folder (containing lyrics, sheet music, etc, etc.) Basically, I need all computers to be current with the last edited and synced version of this folder and content. Is there a way to do this via .Mac without dragging/dropping/overwriting?:confused:

    Dot mac won't do that.

    EDIT: actually that's not 100% true.
    You can just save the folder that you want synced to your iDisk and then make all edits there. Saving any changes (especially to large files) will probably be slower, but at least it'll all be synced.

    This is something that I wanted to do with my iPhoto and iTunes libraries. I guess the same thing as you but on a larger scale. I don't think that there is a way to do this using .mac and it looks like I'll have to invest in a 3rd party app. like Chronosynch. I didn't really want to do this. Anyway, if you can figure it out let me know.
