Hi Everyone,

I was wondering if it's possible to Sync the folder 'Documents' on my Mac Pro & my MacBook Pro? So basically when i add something to the folder on one mac, it appears in the other as well.

I do use Dropbox, but i don't like having dropbox on my MacBook Pro because it's my professional work mac, so i like to keep it free from 3rd party stuff if i can.

Any help and advice would really be appreciated,

Thank you,

Elastic

Dropbox is the best solution I can think of. You can set up a separate Dropbox account for your business info. There's no negative effect of having a 3rd party app installed on a business computer, unless you don't own the computer and you're forbidden to install anything.

Thanks for the reply, yes i see what you mean, it is my mac book pro, i just like to keep it clear of anything like that as it is my dj computer when i dj. So the last thing i want is anything that could cause the laptop to crash or anything whilst playing.

The thing about dropbox though, is that i want to have the folder in my 'Finder', just like documents is. Is this still possible?

Thanks for your help
