    HI,

    I have a laptop and a PC both on Windows 10. What is the best way to ensure the work done on one is replicated on the other?

    I head off to meetings and do some work on my laptop and then want to continue on the PC when at home but there are now different files and the existing files are at different stages of development?

    Is there a way to automatically copy and update from one to the other so I know any work done on one will be exactly the same on the other? Is this file sharing?

    I'm sure this is a simple question, but would appreciate any help.

    regards,
    Navale

    Use OneDrive. I believe it can sync files.

    No; as lunarlander said it is syncing files. I use SugarSync. It's not perfect, but works pretty well and gives me a backup online. Unfortunately it has become pretty expensive (I'm still getting a much smaller plan than currently offered for $25/yr.). If starting now I'd be looking for one of the free services or for another solution.

    Perhaps you could keep your files on a USB flash drive instead of the computer's hard drive. That way you would always have the latest version with you as long as you carried the flash drive around. Of course if you do this back up the files frequently.
