Using Homegroup to work on SL files - a good idea?
Nov 01, 2012
I do all my production work on a PC but would now like to access the same files on my laptop - including course resources and SL files. Naturally this can be achieved over a Homegroup as well as other means, e.g. Dropbox, Skydrive, GDrive, etc. Now, while I love the latter for sharing documents, I don't trust any of them when it comes to sharing production files, e.g. PPT (with Studio stuff) and SL.
Have just been testing connectivity/speed etc and I'm very impressed. I think what I'd do to (hopefully) defend against file integrity issues is copy the latest production file onto the machine I'm about to work with > do the necessary work > save locally > then push a copy onto the other machine.
Is anyone else doing this successfully? Likewise, is anyone trusting Dropbox et al with full production (I think Steve F was among others IIRC)?
