    Hello and thank you guys greatly for any assistance.

    So i've got a issue i cant seem to figure out how to link my imac my mac laptop as well as my file folder at work(which is located on our network obviously)

    any clues? i read a post about chronosync not sure if this would work due to it only specifies 2 computers.

    Again, thank you for any help ahead of time.

    A Chronosync synchronizer setup can only specify a single source and destination device, so to sync between 3 systems you would need to set up more than one synchronizer. I have 3 Mac's, and have 2 synchronizers A to B, and A to C, both bidirectional. I run the A to B sync, then the A to C sync, then the A to B sync again (this takes care of the C to B sync).

    If you have simultaneous access to all 3 of your Mac's you could set up 2 synchronizers like the above and create a container for both. The you would run the container and it would carry out the sync's in the order you added them to the container.

    Alternatively you could use something like DropBox.
