Can I sync with­out iCloud?

Mac Format - - APPLE TALK -

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).
