sync 2 copies of Calibre?

I have a copy of Calibre on my desktop pc, and on my laptop.

Any easy way of keeping the two copies in sync?


thnx,

I use dropbox for that. I have my Calibre library in my Dropbox folder. They all sync fine.

One way that is commonly used is to keep your Calibre library in Dropbox (assuming it fits within the space constraint of a free Dropbox account).

Note that if you go down this route it is important that you do not have Calibre running on both machines as Calibre does not (yet anyway) allow for multiple copies of Calibre to access the same database at the same time in a safe manner.

I tend to use a portable version of calibre for that, just carry it with me on a portable hard drive.
