    I've multiple macs at office and home. I would like to keep my main documents synced between them. My main routine is , do some work at home then take those files and continue working at office and then may be continue working at home again later on.

    I know I can have external hard disk and work off of it, but i would like to keep copy on office and home computer, that helps to me to continue working incase I don't have my external with me. This also becomes my backup so I always have updated backup at 2 places (office and home).

    What applications would you suggest to keep everything in Sync ? Superduper! ? ChronoSync ? How do they perform ?

    You could try dropbox, it's an application that's a folder linked to the website, and all the computers connected to your account is synced with that folder. Although you can only store up to 2GB (more if you invite friends).

    Cloud storage would work well to accomplish this. There are many options: dropbox, xdrive, box.net.

    I use iDisk, as it's built-in to OS X and the syncing is seamless between my Macs.

    I've tried cloud storage, but that's limiting (speed of the internet, file size and amount of data that can be stored). Some of my files are pretty big and also I don't want to store many sensitive files related to work in cloud.

    I use Chronosync to sync my desktop and laptop; however, they are at the same location and only two computers. More than two computers could get tricky, but I would ask the developer at Chronosync.
