  1. Thanks for confirming, Helen - that's what I thought. Since posting my question I've now got Resilio Sync running on our Synology NAS. Hopefully this will provide the always-on 'third party' storage between my machines! Thanks again, Steve
  2. Thanks for the replies guys. I tried this again today, only this time mahually copying & pasting the read/write key from Resilio Sync on Mac One > emailing it to Mac Two and copying & pasting the key to setup the sync on Mac Two. Rather than emailing a link from inside Resilio Sync from Mac One and clicking on it at Mac Two. For whatever reason, doing apparently the same thing a different way works perfectly and my Desktop & Documents folders are now setup in perfect sync. Steve
  3. Hi, So I'm working away with Home Mac at home, with a read/write sync setup on Folder One. The Office Mac away in my office is also setup with a sync key for Folder One but is switched off when I work from home. I then finish working at home, switch off the home Mac, drive to the office and use Office Mac which has been switched off all week. After I launch Resilio Sync on my Office Mac will it begin a sync with Home Mac even though Home Mac is now switched off? A shorter question would probably be; do both my Macs need to be switched on all the time to keep themselves in sync. ;-) Thanks, Steve
  4. Hi, I've installed Resilio Sync with the intention of syncing my Mac's Desktop & Documents folder between two Macs. I don't want separate sub-folders within a 'Resilio Sync' folder, I want a regular file hierarchy of [myusername]/Documents and [myusername]/Dekstop both kept up to date across the two Macs using Resilio Sync. I've setup a share of [myusername]/Documents on Mac 1 and emailed it to myself. Received it on Mac 2 and gone to setup a sync. But Resilio Sync is telling me I can't point the received sync at [myusername]/Documents on the second Mac as I 'Already have a sync in operation'. Aha - maybe it doesn't like the fact that a Documents folder already exists in my home directory. But I can't delete Documents from my home folder as the Mac complains that it's required by macOS. So to sum-up: When I try to point my Mac 1 share of [myusername]/Documents to the [myusername]/Documents of Mac 2, Resilio Sync tells me I'm already syncing it. If it's relevant my usernames are identical on both Macs. Does anyone have any ideas how to achieve what I'm trying? Thanks, Steve
