    Hi everyone. I'm new to these forums and am turning to you for help. I have searched all over but can't find anything to answer my question.

    Essentially, I want to have 2 computers. I would like to have an iMac at home and travel with my MBA. However, I want to be able to have mirror-like settings on both.

    For instance, I travel around and edit a document on my MBA, then when I get home I look at the same document on iMac and its the old version.

    I would like to have EVERYTHING on iMac and then just take what I need and put it on a the MBA like I do with iPad. Then if I take my "Pleadings" folder with me, I can work on both computers and everything stays together and sync'd.


    I'm sure I made no sense, but if anyone can see through this nonsense I just wrote, I would greatly appreciate any help you can offer.

    Thanks in advance!

    Search for Chronosync. Have not tried it myself but I think it does what you want.

    Chronosync - Yes

    Its a great software, was a boon to have when I was trying to sync my 17" MBP with the MBA ! Never caused a problem and was very easy to use.

    This is coming from someone who see's 10 lines of instructions and thinks that the whole thing is too complicated !:eek:

    Thank you for all the replies. I want to have a set up similar to my iPad whereas I sync my ipad, not with every file or folder, but just with those that I select, keeping everything on the Mac. However, what I would like to do is have the feature where when I edit something on the MBA, when I plug it back in to sync with iMac, it auto-updates those files.

    iDisk is a quick fix, but I want to do this with movies and others larger media.

    Thanks!

    And syncing doesn't have to be over the air. If I have to plug into the iMac, that would be fine too. thank you.

    I just want to have 2 computers with one (iMac) holding everything and then one holding some of the stuff from the iMac.
