Live Mesh

One problem I’ve had for a while is how to keep my script library synchronised across a number of machines.  I have a laptop I use for my development work at home and I have two netbooks – at least one of which is always with my when I’m away from home.

I’ve tried using robocopy and keeping everything on a USB stick but it just doesn’t work.

Live Mesh may be the answer

I can designate folders to sync and they will sync, including subfolders, across all three machines. The sync is in both directions.

Good price point as well!

Not something to contemplate for the enterprise but a good solution for private use.

This doesn’t necessarily take away the need for a backup but it does reduce the pressure on backups as I can accept rebuilding the machine and re-installing software. Its the data I can’t afford to lose.
