I installed Bit Torrent Sync on two Macs. On one I set up 4 different folders to sync, and then on the other I chose the corresponding folders and put in the secret/code from the first Mac for each folder. While on the same network, I added test files in each of the 4 folders and it synced fine both ways. When I moved one of the Macs to another house, the syncing seemed to stop. -- I also had 2 different Macs set up on the same network at a second location. Just to try it out, I kept one on the wifi and connected the other one to my phone's internet. I created a new empty folder on one Mac and it wouldn't pop up on the other. As soon as I left the phone internet and connected to the wifi (so both were now on the same wifi) the folder immediately popped up and the syncing worked again Isn't the app supposed to sync even across different networks ? I thought the other forum thread had someone saying they sync their home and work computers.
Currently, we have been using SuperDuper to keep 2 Retina Macbook Pro's in sync. A kind of weird addition to that is that we use an app called "Desktop Icon Manager" (https://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/19789/desktop-icon-manager) to memorize and restore desktop icon locations. So if the icons are rearranged or a display is connected and they move around, this app helps put them back where we want them. So... We started using Bit Torrent Sync to replace Super Duper and just keep all files synced all the time. And it works great but it won't keep the icons in the same place. Even if we hit "Memorize" on one, and later "Restore" on the other, it doesn't do it. We're not sure what file is saved to keep track of the locations. Also, changing the wallpaper doesn't seem to affect the other Mac. Any help or workaround for these 2 remaining issues would be greatly appreciated. Jeff
