    Sync Center Windows 8.1 Pro


    My Wife has a new ASUS tablet with Windows 8.1 Pro on it, and a Desktop with the same OS and we want to keep her checking program current on both machines. Can Sync Center be used to do this or is there something better. Thanks

    If she is sharing files between the desktop & tablet, she should maybe store them in a Cloud account or NAS on your network. I keep my files stored in an Owncloud storage space, that my brother runs on a server at his house. Only family members have access. I also keep a copy in my box.com. Backups for the systems are kept on my NAS on my network.

    I thought about trying to use One Drive, but I am not sure how that works.

    One Drive is Microsoft's Internet Cloud based storage. It is where your roaming profile is saved to, so when you log onto different Windows 8 machines, your profile is synced. It does not sync files that are physically on the device. Unless you have Office 365, you are limited to a small amount of space.
