    Hi,
    Is it possible to do this? I have a user folder I was to use on two computers, so whenever something I updated on one computer it syncs with the other.

    Is it possible to do this using Dropbox? The user folder in question is only ~150MB, so space isn't really an issue. All is saved on there is game saves and small text documents.

    Obviously applications would have to be stored separately, duplicated on each computer.

    Thanks for any help!

    Yes, just put the folder you want to sync in the Dropbox folder...?

    I want to sync the whole user folder. Would it still work without messing everything up? Also, would;t I need to delete one on one computer first?

    The user folder will sync between two computers. It will stay inside the dropbox folder. That's how the program works.

    Read more on how dropbox works.
