What are some of the best ways to easily sync your Reason folder between 2 computers?

I'd like to sync my reason folders in my laptop and desktop. Do any of you do this?

You can get google drive and then install it on both computers. Works great once you get over the pain in the ass of uploading all your stuff.

I hear that, google drive really is just quick and easy. You can just put your stuff in the google drive folder and sync it so then anyone that it is shared with will have it automatically when their Gdrive syncs up - I don't even have to launch safari to upload stuff, just drag and drop or save it directly.
I'd recommend it for what the OP is after, also useful for collaborating.

I have Box, Dropbox, Goggle Drive, SkyDrive, Suger Sync... best to check each and see which offers what you need ;-)

For example, if you are an Android user and the files are under 100MB each then you can still get 50GB free space!

Cool. So I guess this means you keep separate reason installations on each machine, and just keep your refills, patches, and samples synced in a different folder?

Maybe set up a backup job from one to the other. This assumes that one will always be the master copy of the files. If you need the ability for either to arbitrarily be the master, then another scheme is necessary.

Is this Windows or Mac?

Dropbox is a solid multi-platform sync performer, highly recommended.

It's compatible with both. Even Linux is supported.

I second Google Drive. It's awesome!

Has anyone here tried BitTorrent Sync? It's essentially a DropBox/Google Drive clone that doesn't use a cloud and instead opting to keep your files in sync via encrypted BitTorrent connections between however many computers.

Also, IT'S FREE.

I'm using it to share a specific project folder as a test drive, and it seems to work great. I'm just scared to let it sync all my refills and samples just in case something goes wrong. I'm paranoid like that.
