I have 3 laptop computers Sony Vaio - Vista Toshiba Satellite Pro - XP Advent - XP BT Business Hub
We need to create a central database / storage facility between these 3 laptops which will enable us to fileshare etc.
Senario 1. I create order in excel i.e. Order no.100 on the Vaio, if someone else needs to create a subsequent order on another laptop - they would need to see that i have already taken the order reference no.100 and now create no.101.
Senario 2. If one of the laptops is taken out the office - the other 2 laptops will need to have access to the files from the "missing" laptop - hence central database / storage requirement.
I have had 2 people come to see me saying i need a server and a network set in the region of £5000.00 - £11000
Surely this is a fairly simple requirement....appreciate any comments or assistance / guidance Thank you
Share a single folder on a NAS drive ( click here) between all machines and/or install Dropbox ( click here ) - it's described as a Beta but I've been using it for months to keep a shared folder on my home PC and work laptop synced and it's never caused a problem.
