    Hi guys,

    Not quite sure where this goes, so I have placed it in here, as it's a bit basic.

    I currently have 2 MacBook Pro's and will be getting a Mac Pro If I get my replacement to my stupidly loud brand new one!

    Anyhow, my question is, how do you guys manage your work/documentation?

    I will be using my laptop for the train/site visits/in the work office and when bumming around the house, but will be using the mac pro in the home office.

    I will be doing a lot of documentation, both on the Macbook Pro's and the Mac Pro's, but duplication is one of my main concerns, I also want to be able to access my documents on the go.

    Ensuring that I don't lose/ duplicate and have a good order of documents in regards to where they are placed is very important to me, and will be so in the future when I have my own business.

    Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks in advanced,

    I don't know how much data you are talking about, but what about Mobile Me or Dropbox (2GB free)?

    Or you could use a synching application like ChronoSync.

    Good point, didn't mention data size.

    Documents 7GB (includes images in the docs)

    There is music and lots vm images, but they will only run on the MacPro for that.

    It's just I don't feel like I am organised enough, hope this makes sense.

    I actually use MobileMe iDisk syncing.

    It's nice because the documents are stored on disk then synced to the cloud when any file changes or on a schedule. I am using this for school and development files nothing too big because I only have 20 gb.

    A similar and free option is DropBox like the previous poster said.
