If you’ve ever used two PCs to work on the same project then you will know that keeping them synchronised is difficult. All too often you’ll finish an important document late at night
on your home PC, but forget to take it into the office the next day. Disaster! And one that could easily be avoided if you install Syncplicity.
This clever tool starts by letting you configure exactly which folders you’d like to keep synchronised. By default this will point to your desktop, Documents folder and other system locations, but you can easily add a folder of your own, such as C:\WorkDocuments.
Once you’ve done that, Syncplicity will scan the contents of your specified folders and start uploading them to your account on its server. This happens quietly, in the background, so you don’t have to think about it: just carry on working, as normal. When it completes the program will continue to monitor the folders, uploading new or edited files as they appear, so the online copies are always up to date.
Now install Syncplicity on a second PC (at work, say) and it’ll check your online account, then download any new files it finds. And if you edit those files again they’ll be uploaded to the Syncplicity server, and synchronised with your home PC when you turn it on. Now your most important documents are synchronised automatically, without having to do anything.
With Syncplicity, you don’t have to remember to store or keep copies of your files in special folders, on USB flash drives, or online file storage websites to always have them handy.
Syncplicity also works as a handy online backup tool, even if you never use a second PC. If your key files are accidentally deleted then it’s easy to restore them from the online version. Syncplicity is free upto an online storage space of 2GB, which should be quite sufficient for most individual users.
