    Hi All,

    I just got a laptop. Is there an efficient, free way to sync select folders on my laptop with others on my desktop over a network? I want to sync my documents and my music, and windows 'groove sync' tool only offers 2 gigs, so that's out of the question. I'm not sure how to go about doing this...

    Thanks!

    For synchronizing backup folders, SyncToy, available free from Microsoft.

    I'm familiar with sync toy - but I don't know how to make it work across a network. Is this possible?

    Thanks

    Sure, just pick a folder on a networked drive for one of the folders, I've done that with it here.
