Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I've Googled this but can't find any answers.

    Problem - I used the Windows briefcase to back up my documents from PC to external hard drive.

    The hard drive has died, so I want to synch my PC briefcase with one on my laptop, but it keeps looking for the hard-drive, which obviously it can't 'see' bcaseu it ain't there.

    Is there a way to re-target the briefcase so it syncs with the one on the laptop, or will I have to create new ones?
  2. Which OS are you using? There are some differences but as memory serves, you make a new one. Not something I've had much to do with for a very long time
  3. 64-bit Windows 7 on both PC and laptop.
  4. OK. Just done the "refresher" - too long working with domains and details for this stuff gets lost.

    Just make a new briefcase, but it sounds like sync centre maybe a better option for you if you are synching docs on 2 machines
  5. I'd never heard of it before you mentioned it, and a quick Google looks as though that might be the answer - thank you. I'll let you know how I get on.
