But now... Source code repositories and multimedia data can have many files and occupy gigabytes of storage space. Cloud storage is the key answer for this question, but cloud computing (ex office 360 - for online document creation) is not universal solution. And synchronization with cloud server (to work with date locally on thinkpad) with the WWAN can be very painfull.
From T40-era these thinkpads have almost identical hardware. And it is possible to make virtual machines roaming between main T(W)-series thinkpad and jorney X-series seamlesly.
So the question - have you seen (worked with) any synchronization utility that can be used in this usecase:
- synchronizing tonn (10Gb+) of files
- synchronization over fast 1Gbps network - but it is needed to use fast algorithm to transfer only changed pices
- 2-way synchronisation
- synchronization automatically begins when X-series thinkpad have landed to the dock and network connection established with tha main T(W) series brother.
I agree.pointyhat wrote:I wouldn't bother TBH. I have one machine in flight at any time - it's much easier than synchronising stuff. It has a dock so the moment it gets dropped on my desk, it is my desktop as well.
And as a side not. If the OP really needs to sync 10gb of files. Why not just use a USB flash drive, or instead create a "my documents' folder and put it on a SD card and just move the card back and forth?
10gb really isn't much to transfer these days.
Does "My Briefcase" still work these days?
