The proliferation of personal devices makes it increasingly probable that you’ll have a device in your hand that doesn’t have the file on it you want. How do you keep everything synced between your devices?

This week we’re curious about the tricks, techniques, and tools you use to keep files synchronized (or at least available in same capacity) across your constellation of personal devices and computers. How do you keep your music, photos, and other files organized and synced across everything so that you’re never left wanting to show off a family photo or listen to a new single?

Sound off in the comments and then check back in on Friday to see how you fellow readers manage the problem in the What You Said followup.

If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.
