Syncing a hard drive folder with a flash drive. Rsync Create a system (using Rsync?) to maintain currency among instances of a folders to different drives. The newest version of each file will be on both systems at the end. A working package to "click" and sync Link
Cost Effective Internet based office phone system Magicjack, Vonage, Ooma, Top Ten VoIP Design the most appropriate phone system for Live Wellness Centre to address today's needs and their needs for the foreseeable two years. Monthly cost is of great concern. The needs must be address but all possibilities are eligible. (i.e. A higher up front cost is tolerable if that cost can be amortized over a 12 to 24 month period.) A 5 phone VoIP system with single number plus rollover and transfer, for about $50 a month. Link
