Hi, want to keep my laptop (XP Pro) updated from my pc (XP Media Center Ed.). Have seen SynchPst but it only updates Outlook. I want to update Outlook, My Documents, Favorites, and any new files. Any ideas for me? Thank you and Happy Holidays :)

what do you mean keep it updated? if you mean copy all the stuff that you change from the pc to the laptop, you can make a network and just drag it over through filesharing. you might also look into ghosting but i think that makes an exact copy of the harddrive...so that might be a wee bit unsafe for doing between two computers.

Or, for what I believe to be a better program, try Cobian Backup, it has an option to sync between machines, and you can select the folders and files you want to sync. You do have to be somewhat specific as to what you're copying over.

Wow! Thank you all so very much for the good ideas and leads to keep my laptop and pc in synch. I've never even heard of the offered solutions before, so I'm really glad I asked.:D

Hi, downloaded SynchToy from Microsoft as recommended, but when I tried to run it, got an error message telling me I need a "JIT Debugger." I Googled this but got a lot of HIGHLY technical info for pros (like programmers), way, way, above my head. I don't understand; I have XP Media Center and stay updated, etc. Why would MS (I know it's not actually their product) not have accounted for this? Any way around this?
