How To Sync Files Across Multiple Computers

1. The first thing you should do is download the FolderShare software on each of the devices you would like to sync.

2. You can then select the specific folders that you would prefer to share on the network such as “My Documents” or “Videos”.  The FolderShare software is continuously running in the background and should automatically synchronize all of the files you selected.  If any of the computers you want synced is offline then the documents will by updated when it comes back online.

3. If you would prefer to not download FolderShare you can also synchronize files by downloading an online back-up system such as DropBox. You can put all of the files you want to access in the DropBox folder, and you will be able to access them from any computer — as long as there is Internet — with your personal username and password.  There are many other options just like DropBox that you can choose from.
