Sync - only one computer running

I would like to know what happens to files that have been changed on one pc (call it pc #1) with sync running while the other pc (call it pc#2) is off.   If I shut off PC #1 and go home and start pc #2 will the files that have changed on pc #1 be updated on pc #2?

No. Unless both PC's are online at the same time, they won't sync.  The difference between Sync and things like gdrive, dropbox and onedrive, is that they always have a server online to sync with, so when offline hosts come up, they sync to the server, not to PC1.

Solutions:

Don't power down either machine
Add a third PC that is always on whenever PC1 or 2 is on
