    Re: Best way to share docs between desktop and laptop?

    I keep my documents synchronized as part of my data backup. I don't keep a central server running on my LAN; I just use an external USB HDD big enough to back everything up. I use Grsync to synchronize my files between my 2 laptops and my backup HDD. Disadvantage: I have to make sure that I synchronize the most current file versions to the backup HDD. In my case, not usually an issue since one laptop is just a backup PC anyway. Advantage: Because i disconnect the external HDD, it can't be corrupted by external hacking or power surges.

    I use samba for this. Two Windows desktops have no issue reading and writing there, and administration is pretty straightforward.
