  1. I am still learning about syncing computers, but I can provide some assistance. If you have all 3 computers on the same Workgroup and can access them from each desktop using Explorer, then you can share the data using windows or a third party app such as FreeFileSync. Resilio Sync does work continuously in thebackground. When you set up the folder to sync, be sure to check Read and Write. I think you need to set up a sync link from computer 1 to computer 2, and a link from computer 1 to computer 3.

This would cause the loss of all the changes that were made on computer 2 before syncing. I want information that was changed on each computer to be synced to the other computer so I wind up with 2 identical folders.
  4. I have 2 laptops and I would like to keep the "My Documents" folders synchronized. I figured out how to share from one laptop to the other, but how do I get both computers to update each other with the most recent changes?
