Sync an external HD (3 TB) between two macs – best possible way to start?

Recommended Posts

Hey! Nice to be here and a warm HELLO to everyone in the forum!

My goal is to sync my work-data-HD between my two Macs – one in the office – the other one at home. Both are Mac Minis and run macOS Mojave.

Here is my question:
is ist possible to start with a clone of the drive to avoid syncing the whole 3 TB traffic over the internet?
Then bring the cloned Drive to the second mac and from this time resilio syncs ecery change.

Is this possible? Or do i have to do the first initial sync always over the internet?

Any idea how i should start?

 

THX ALL OF YOU!
Harry
