    A local database resides both at home and office. The db is not sharing with other people. I update data in the db both at office and home. The two copies need to be synchronized. Thanks!

    Are they replicas?

    If you set them both to replicate with the server copy, they should all sync up.

    If you don't have this DB on a server, then I think you'd have to get some sort of connection between the 2 PCs. If you could access the file on your home PC from work, for example, then you could open it in Notes and replicate it with the file on your PC..

    I have tried to replicate the db on a usb drive with the db on the local computer. I could not make it work. After some time, the office copy and the home copy both accumulated some data. They are different in the two copies. I copied one (OS copy, so still being a replica) of the copies into a usb, and tried to replicate with the other one. This is to replicate two replica in the same computer. Thanks!

    Jz, I too have run into the exact same situations you describe - a (replica) copy on my home PC and a (replica) copy on my work PC ... or a copy on a PC and a copy on a memory stick. Indeed, replication does between two such "Local" DBs does not seem to be supported at all by IBM/Lotus. I believe your only solution will be to create a replica copy on a Notes/Domino server somewhere and use it as a "go between" ... replicate from "Local" on home PC to the server ... and then replicate between the server and "Local" on work PC. Of course, use a very strict ACL with the "Enforce a consistent ACL across all replicas" option enabled to keep others from accessing your DB.

    Hi Rich, Thanks for your reply! I wish IBM would support this kind of local replication, it is a valid need of Notes users.

    This tool may help you but I'm not sure as I haven't used it. There also maybe other apps/tool here to help you out. http://www.openntf.org/Projects/pmt.nsf/29b713283ca92bf5862570ef00653b4e/7C96B84B9E5CF50A8625752F003D4BA7
