What is the best way to sync a desktop computer and a laptop ?

I am using Skydrive. Their free 7GB is enough for me. If you are using windows 7 they also have an app which enable you to sync a folder on your computer to that on the Cloud. Bonus with using the Cloud is you always have a back up. You can then of course access your folder on any computer. If you just want to network at home then Homegroup would suffice. More information in the question if this is not what you are looking for.

Sugarsync and Dropbox are also a good option. Jack wrote up an article on them in the past.

      I have a HP-G72-B53 notebook with Window 7 Home Premium 64. I've known that redundancies exist in OEM notebooks, so I just want to make sure all these HP items are unnecessary:
      HP Advisor, HP Power Manager HP Quick Launch HP Software Framework And,no I am not concerned with voiding warranties.
