Windows 7: How to sync MS office documents across multiple folders?

How to sync MS office documents across multiple folders?

Hi everyone!

A few months ago I got MS Office 2010 Professional Plus, and have been using it more and more the past week. I prefer MS Office over Google Drive because of its wider range of text options which can help me make more professional looking documents.

I am frequently on the go, so I have my files on my laptop (Vaio S Series) and a flash drive as well. Is MS Office able to save the document on both my flash drive and computer so that they are synced? I know that when I'm working on the file from my flash drive I won't be able to sync the file with the one on my laptop, but I hate having to save new documents on my flash drive over and over again.

Thanks!

im not aware of being able to save two copies of a file when saving an office file, however if you saved the original to your skydrive folder /subfolders that could save you the trouble of using the flash drive.

I mainly just use Word, but I would also like to know how to do it for all of the programs.

So basically when you saving a file you want it to go to multiple places?

Yeah, and when I save again it will update all of the copies of that file.

Ok well what you can do is use a program for this? Would that be useful for you? Or another option is create a marco within word, which I am gone very rusty on and can't remember to be honest.
