    I am looking for a program to sync folders with leopard. I keep all of the files that I work on frequently in a 'documents' folder. However, I sometimes work on them from my laptop, so I have a local 'documents' folder on the hard drive, and other times I have to work on them from other computers, so i have a 'documents' folder that is located on my network drive. Sometimes my laptop can't reach the network, or its just too much of a hassle, so I save it on the local disk opposed to the network drive. But I was wondering if there is an application out there that will sync the two folders so when I make changes on either my local disk, or my folder on the network, the changes I have made will be shown in both folders after syncing? I had an app for windows that did it, which I also used to backup my photos onto my external. I downloaded carbon copy cloner, but it appears to be more of a backup files rather than syncing.

    I know this doesn't help but I know that it exists, my father needed it - I think it was called martian slingshot or something... try that.

    This may not be exactly the answer you're looking for, but I use .Mac for keeping my folders sync'd. I set up my iDisk to automatically sync with both machines and use the iDisk 'documents' folder for my docs instead of my local documents folder. This way, I have a copy of my important files on each machine (even when not connected to the net) and an offsite backup of the files on the .Mac server. Works like a charm.

    The software looks like it hasn't been updated in a while. And there have to be some newer and better apps in the market by now.
