Calling Computer/Android Users. How to autosync multiple devices

Hey fanatics,

I have a samsung galaxy s3, my laptop(dell), and a custom built desktop on my wi fi network at home. I am wondering if there is an app/program that can automatically sync files between my two computers. Right now I have been using Sync Toy however it has to be done manually between both computers. I would also like my photos and music to be autosynced from my phone to both computers as well.

Anyone know of software/apps that are free that can do both of these?

I had put up a thread a while back about remote desktop access and got some great advice in that department. Currently been using teamviewer to remote access my computers/phones and it works great.

Thanks fanatics

You will probably have to use multiple programs. Dropbox or Google drive to sync files and/or photos. Google Music or Amazon cloud player for music. The instant upload feature in the Google+ app can upload either full size or resized pictures to Picasa automatically right after you take them. Full size images will count towards your storage limit, images resized to 2048 pixels don't count towards the limit.

Cloud storage is the way to go. Everything will be available anywhere.

^ yep.

Transform your life with the wonderful thing that is google drive. ANY device connected to the internet can be used to access your files, and files are synced automatically across all devices that are logged in. Doesnt get better than that! I got 100gb free for 2 years, I think thats $120 worth of storage, for free when I bought my $220 chromebook. Add to that 10 wifi flight passes also free = got the chromebook for $0. Awesome. I love google.
