So many of us write from multiple computers and I know from personal experience that it can be a pain to try and transfer files back and forth between laptops/desktops/etc. Today, Myr is telling us about a great way to make our life easier when switching between computers!
Keeping Your Writing Life in Sync
(and backed up)
In this day and age, many of us have multiple computers or devices that we use in our daily lives. For those of us that write, we could be writing in any number of places.
For me, I often write on my laptop, but edit on my main computer. I also, from time to time, make notes on my writing when I'm on the go.
I use one free piece of software to keep everything backed up and automatically synched, no matter which computer or device I'm using.
Microsoft's Skydrive. It's free and not only works on Windows, but windows phone, any internet browser, the Mac, iPad, iPhone and coming in the next couple of weeks, Android.
It's really easy to set up and it puts a folder on your computer. anything you put in that folder automatically synchs to all places. (There is also Dropbox, for you Microsoft Haters, but it has had repeated severe security breaches lately)
You can get Skydrive here:

I strongly recommend it. I have been using it myself (or its predecessor for years).
