    Automatically sync a file between PC and Droid when changed

    Hey guys, I am just wondering if it's possible to automatically have my droid and PC sync a file whenever it is edited. I edit it from both devices nearly everyday and constantly hooking my Droid to my PC is a pain. Is it possible?

    Not really sure if this belongs here or in Android Apps. Move it if this is incorrect please.

    I never "sync" the PC with my Droid.....if you wanna add something just drag and drop the file to the folder on your sdcard...

    I believe he is talking about editing a file on a PC and it automatically syncing with the droid and edit the file on the droid.

    Yes perhaps....I was kind of unclear as to what was being asked...

    Exactly. I want it to automatically sync when edited (regardless of the device it's edited on).

    I am rooted, if being rooted is required for such a thing.

    I'm sure it's possible, I don't personally know of any apps that do that. But if you can edit your calender and contacts and have them automatically sync at a scheduled time I'm sure this is possible.

    Sorry FlipBack for misunderstanding your question...although I'm not sure such a thing exists...at least not at the moment...but I could be wrong...may just have to do some heavy searching

    sugarsync might be one approach. Have your PC folder synced w/sugarsync. Then install the sugarsync app. You can view (and edit?) the file on droid, etc.

    This would be nice with at least possibly something along the lines of a bluetooth synching app that could be used with the Droid's bluetooth and the computer's bluetooth.

    I'm thinking there must be an FTP client to sync from pc to android but I do not know if that would work both ways. Ill check out sugarsync but I'm not sure that is what I'm looking for.

    Thanks everybody!
