    yes, Jim, i use that, but it works manually, then i prefer my Robocopy program.

    Skydrive does not allow folders to upload, but abover all, i see no reason to use the internet for my files. Have enough GB at home, just was looking for a solution i want.

    Besides if Sync does not work in Windows8, why is it offered then.....

    If it is workable, you have the solution by now. There is no cheap way of achieving what you want. You will need a server in between your PCs. Either that or network storage.

    hello guys,

    well reinstalled ALLWAYSYNC, at first it was not what i was looking for, BUT since what i wanted was not possible retried
    started the program, activated syncronize and set time to 1 minute, closed the program, copied a Excel file to the computer where the important files are on (pc is used as a server), and yes, 1 minute later the file was on my computer.

    So guys, this is the way to go if you look for this.

    hi guys,

    am back with more and incredible info. Have installed Allwaysync on my 4 pc's and tested if the syncronize works for both directions and yes, it does. So changing a file on 1 of the 4 computers gives updates on all 4.

    So i got want i wanted, maybe others want this to.
