Windows 7: Unable to sync from my computer

Unable to sync from my computer

Hello,
This is my first post so I apologize in advance for any errors or missteps.
I have a desktop computer and an asus laptop with Windows 7. I went to the sync center on the desk top and a message appeared letting me know I could not sync from this computer.
I would appreciate any help in how to sync the two. If it is not possible to use the sync center to do this, what are my best alternatives?
I am a very basic user so I hope any steps recommended will be easy to follow!
Thanks!

So you want to sync files between your 2 pcs?

Are they on the same network?

You can use a home group for that in terms of getting them connected:

Hi, Andrew
Thanks but as one of my computers is a desktop and the other a laptop the solution won't work for me.
I need a very simple program, I guess, to sync the two computers so that my document and picture files can be the same on both computers.
I hope your answer will be of help to someone else. Thanks for taking the time to respond!

What about onedrive? You can install it and use it to sync files.
