Windows 7: Simultaneous updating of edited documents on two PC's in Homegroup

Simultaneous updating of edited documents on two PC's in Homegroup

When you have identical/copied documents/folders on two PCs, Is it possible to set up the Homegroup system, so that any document edited on either a Windows 7 x64 Desktop or a Vista x 32 Laptop, simultaneously update the other document when sharing on Homegroup?

Use a thrid party software to do it. SyncBack works well for this, you can set the program to update both locations:
How to backup data - backup software free download. SyncBackPro, SyncBackSE, SyncBack Freeware and more

Hi Dave,

Thank you for your suggestions. Have you used any of the Software you suggest?

So I assume it can't be done with any Windows or Microsoft software?

Thanks

The reference sparked my interest, so I went to their site and read about the three different versions of SyncBack -- and if I understand what you want to do, you want changes made in one copy to TRIGGER the same changes to the other copy, right? From what I read, this requires the OnChange feature -- which they say is not available in the Freeware version.

I would install it onto both PC and then copy accross the changed files to either PC. This should be ok and could run every 15mins or so.

As the title says, I am curious as to how many OSes people have installed at the same time on a single machine. Currently, I have 4, but I hope to increase that to 7 by installing Ubuntu 9.10 32-bit and 64-bit and also XP Professional 32-bit (when I get round to it, that is).
