    Hi everybody,

    I'm looking for a software that can sync my files I have
    1) On my normal home computer
    2) On my Laptop.

    Talking about my uni stuff... Maybe I'm downloading some material at home, then do some work at the uni, how do I synchronise the directory with those files best? Preferred would be a program that asks what to do if there is a difference and for text-only files even show the difference.

    Best would of course be an open source project or a freeware program.

    Thanks in advance
    Maschine

    Hi Maschine,

    Did you ever try the "offline files" feature from Windows? I've never really used it myself because I don't really have a purpose for it. I always create a VPN connection with my work's network if I want to access files from there.

    Anyway, the function is accessible by starting the Windows explorer, choose "Tools" -> Folder options -> Offline files. Here, enable the "offline files" feature. Next, just right-click on a network folder and choose "make available offline". I guess you will want to make your home computer "leading" and use the offline file feature on your laptop.

    Kind regards,
    Michel

    Hmm, thanks for that hint, Michel. I didn't ever think about this one. I'll try it tomorrow and then report back here... But will this also copy new files I created while away back to the home pc if I return home? Hmm, maybe I should just check it ;-)

    Thanks for those tips so far, but still open for more ;-)

    Thanks, Sam, "your" SyncToy looks really nice and seems to do a good job! Well though there are some good or even better alternatives in some parts, in other parts MS software is still quite good ;-)

    Thanks also to all others who replied here!

    Hi, must be really a while, cuz I can not remember any post from you ;) But might be also that I joined the team too late. Yes, there will be many things.

    Hello!!! I use a handy app called catchin' sync to roughly check the AV sync of audio/video on my HTPC/TV. It's not as accurate as a dedicated opto-electronic calibrator but it's more than adequate for this application and much better than trying to do things by eye (even when the lack of sync is massively obvious, subjective...

    Having used MP1 since 15 years, these epg related problems occuring after a fresh install stumble me. Needed to change a system hdd and decided it was time for a clean install anyway. Other hardware (C2D, 8 Gb ram, no tv cards - IP only) unchanged. Was running an earlier Win10 version with MP 1.24 which had been updated for years...

    Hi. Network tuners can be shared even on the same PC (done it often while testing different software, I'm using SAT>IP tuner that are similar to hdhomerun tuner but for European DVB). But you can not use them on both systems at the same time ofc.. Means if WMC is using a tuner (e,g, for a scheduled recording) MP can't use the same...
