I have 2 different laptops that I use for work, they're different so I use one or another depending on my needs. They're usually connected to the same home network (unless I go out and work from somewhere else, of course).
I have a folder in one of them where I keep the files of all my projects, so if I want to continue working from the other laptop I have to copy first the files that changed (which sometimes it's not easy to remember which ones changed), because copying everything every time I change the laptop I'm using would take too long.
So I would like to know if there's any way to keep those changes in sync. So for example, when I use the second laptop, I run whatever syncing process that copies only the files that changed in the first laptop since the last time I used the second one. And after working on it, if I want to go back to the first laptop, be able to sync those changes back from the second laptop.
I don't know what options are available to do this (online services or network services?). I know one option would be using a network hard drive, but then if I have to take one laptop with me and work away from the network that would be an issue...
Any ideas would be appreciated!
Sorry, I forgot to mention that I use Windows 8 in both (but my revert to Windows 7 in my old one because I have some compatibility issues, I mention this in case it matters).
Also, if it can be done without an online service (like Dropbox) I would prefer that, some files might be too big or might have sensitive info that I would prefer not sending online
