    Default Auto Sync Files Multiple Computers

    Hey Beyond. I would like to auto sync files among a few computers. Is a Synology NAS going to cut it, or is there a better solution?

    Dropbox w/ local folder.

    We have 14 machines over 4 provinces in our engg group and we use integration of sharepoint (365) for our word/excel/ppt/notes and dropbox w/ local file sync for our cad/solidworks/ProE files.

    Yea I use Dropbox for that, have been using it to keep files synced between desktop and laptop for years. but damn near any cloud document service will do that for you.

    0 need to have a local NAS for simple document sync.

    How much are we talking about? I love dropbox for myself. Bonus that it's cloud.
    2gb is basic, and I think we each get 500mb if you sign up through referral.

    DSynchronize, as long as they're on the same network. Used it for years.

    what kind of files and what o/s is on each computer? if it's just personal docs/pics/music and all are Windows where you login with a MS account, then OneDrive would be a great option. Add/edit/delete in your onedrive on one machine, and it will sync to the cloud and to all other computers when you login.

    I think you get 1GB for free and 5TB if you happen to pay for a O365 subscription.

    Even for terabytes it’s probably just cheaper to use a cloud service.
