Syncing two partitions on different systems (rsync?)
I'm not quite sure this message fits in this category, but I didn't know where else to post...
I'm trying to figure out what the best solution to keep two directories synced between two systems is and I thought that maybe rsync could be a good starting point. However, I don't exactly know how this might work.
I'll try to detail my situation and what I want to do below.
I've got two main computers with the following systems installed:
PC-1 OS: Windows XP HE, Ubuntu 8.04
PC-2 OS: Windows XP MCE, Ubuntu 8.04
The first one mainly runs Windows while the second almost only runs Ubuntu.
Both PCs have a dedicated partition where I store all my data. This partition uses the NTFS filesystem on one machine and FAT32 on the other.
I'd like to find a tool which runs on Linux and that let me keep the two partitions always synced. I usually work on PC-2 with Ubuntu whereas my wife works on PC-1 with Windows. Sometimes we work on the same files and I'd want the last version of each file to be saved on both machines.
I hope I have given enough information for you to answer: is rsync the right tool for me? How do I use it to achieve what I need to do?
