    I have an iMac and an iBook, and .Mac does a fine job of syncing mail, iCal etc.

    However, I'd like to be able to sync the work I am doing - primarily Word files - so that I can work on one computer and then, when I go to the other, the files are up to date.

    I realise that it would be ambitious to sync my entire documents, but if I could have a 'sync folder' of current work, that would be ideal.

    Does anyone know of any way of doing this?

    Thanks

    Phil

    Thanks, that looks ideal.

    It looks like it would replace .Mac in that it syncs the entire Mac. Is that how you use it?

    Cheers

    I use a combination of .mac and chronosync. .mac to keep things like bookmarks, iCal entires, and address books in sync. Chronosync to keep folders and files in sync, such as my documents folder.
