Sorry to post on here regarding a non-bike thing, but none of my friends/enemies/family etc. know anything about computers, and some of you lot probably do.
I need instruction on how to sync the files on my PC/laptop/USB pen so that when I put the USB pen into the laptop/PC the files that have been altered most recently on one drive will automatically (or at the press of a button) overwrite the ones on the other drive.
Is this a possibility? I already do this by hand and its a drag; I'm usually working on a handful of documents at any given time - on my USB if i'm using a PC somewhere, on my laptop if I've got it and I'm not at home and on my PC if I'm at home, so I can have a file on each with the same name but it could easily be a different version on each, which gets annoying.
Anyone know how to do this? (all my stuff like OS and software is MS by the way)

I've used it on firewire drives and its pretty lightweight and simple to use.
Clefty that appears to be exactly what I'm after - thanks very much!
get a mac, they do it for you and look good at the same time
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
