    Software Question

    I'm looking for some kind of software (free software if possible) that can sync up folders on two networked computers. My laptop and desktop PC are networked wirelessly and I have music on both of them. I'd like to find a way to sync the folders so I don't have to constantly make sure I've copied it all to the other computer. Ideally, any changes made to the "My Music" folder and subfolder on one computer could automaticlly be transferred to the other.

    Ideas?

    There is a shareware program called wincron. It's very much like the Unix cron. You could set it up to do any task at any interval. So you could have it copy all the files from one PC to another at midnight each night.

    Another option would be to see if you could set up a shared drive on one machine. I'm not sure if that's available on the home version of windows, or if there's some freeware way to do it, but you could look into it.
