    I was wondering if anyone had an idea of a real easy way to sync files between two computers that won't always be on the same network.

    Thanks!

    Live Sync also is a free option. it's at http:\\get.live.com as one of the sets of apps MS offers these days.

    Oh man that's awesome. Great option since it does more than the 2gb that dropbox does, or at least it appears to so that's awesome.

    edit1:
    Just wanna find out if there is a transfer or HD limit on LiveSync if you're just syncing two computers and not publicly sharing.

    edit2:
    Found out you can't sync more than 20,000 files from a single folder, it's a soft limit imposed by LiveSync
