    Talking Tips for dual booters

    Ok well I am now among the crowd of people who Dual Boot There Systems.

    I am posting this thread to give and get tips on what works best to keep everything synced and working great.

    My Tips:

    1. Get Dropbox: With dropbox on both your installations and your files will be synced and backed-up over the internet to a secure source. The free version gives you 2GBs of free space and more as you refer people. I will link you to the website where you can install program not a referral (as I am unsure about the rules regarding such links in threads) Here is a plain link to the website... www.dropbox.com



    2. Get Weave Sync on Firefox on both your installations. You can get it by going to "Tools>Add-ons>Search>Type In Weave>Hit Enter>Add" in Firefox. This will keep all your bookmarks, cookies, and passwords synced between your installations and other computers.

    Have any more Tips to that work great for dual-booters post them below?

    the moderator moved it to general help so it gets more exposure not because of spamming.

    the moderator moved for a different reason. he wanted it to have more exposure and have it moved to a more appropriate forum catagory

    This could actually be helping somebody, just by being accesible to people doing a search. Don't worry about quick accusations.
