Can I sync without iCloud?
I have a Late 2012 iMac that I use day to day but when travelling I take my 15-inch MacBook Pro. What I want to do is sync documents normally on my iMac with my MacBook Pro so I always have an up‑to‑date copy of them whether I am home or away. Is there a way of syncing them over a home network, as I don’t really want to put my them on a cloud service. Guy Clarkson You can sync files over a home network with GoodSync ($30 per computer – about £20, goodsync. com) but if you make any changes while you are away from home, that laptop will be out of sync until you get back. If you’re concerned about sensitive files in the cloud, password-protect individual files or use tresorit.com, which offers 100GB of encrypted storage for £8 per month. Also, iCloud Drive offers at least 128-bit AES encryption (see http://apple.co/1LaIihe).
