I recently purchased a new notbook computer to replace one that died a year ago and having lived with it for a few weeks I canít imagine how it could be improved upon. But once again, Iím trying to find a really workable way to have my Outlook files on both the notebook and my desk computer and keep them synchronized. Exporting the files from one computer then importing them into the other never worked for me. In order to avoid having duplicate entries I would have to delete all of the old data before importing. This was too tedious and I was always concerned that I might make a mistake and corrupt the files.
Putting the .pst files on a memory stick and plugging that into whichever computer I happen to be using is one approach thatís been suggested elsewhere in this forum and it has a certain appeal. Since thereís only one data set, one doesnít have to be concerned with which data set is the most current. But to avoid the risk of ďlosingĒ that data set, I think I would still want to have copies on the hard drives of the two computers, and if Iím doing that, why not keep them there? Iíve uncovered two programs written specifically to synchronize Outlook on more than one computer. Does anyone here have experience with them? How well do they work? Are they capable of keeping track of what has been changed in which version of the data set so that when they are synchronized the most current data is retained? Would you trust your Outlook data to them?
