as usual, i'm expecting that this will already have been done - but maybe not.
something like a "desktop mirror".
i'd like to have my main 'desktop contents' available on the various computers i use. i don't mean remote access and control to a specific machine's desktop; just the files i seem to collect and leave scattered all over it - but not large files.
the idea works like this:
1. dropping/creating 'small' files like .doc, .txt, .jpg, etc., etc. on the desktop is immediately captured by a monitoring tool that uploads these same files to an ftp server.
2. you move on to a different computer that is also running the monitoring tool and it automatically downloads the stored files onto this machine's desktop.
3. any changes that are made such as file edits and complete file removal is also monitored and shared across the other desktops.
4. there would be an option to specify 'large' file exclusion, and i suppose file 'type' exclusion/inclusion.
hopefully someone can recommend a tool that already does this. i can imagine there are ones that will do something similar but will probably be lacking one of the requirements.
any suggestions or is this a util that needs creating?
