I’m a consulting engineer/legal expert witness and a one-man firm. In the past, I’ve tried to have a desktop and a notebook computer, and it was always a pain keeping both computers up to date with app updates and in sync with data files. Also, my frustration was always needing a file that was not on the machine at hand (I had a stack of external drives).
I have since decided to go with a single16 inch M2 MBP, fully loaded with 64 GB and 4TB storage. Everything I have is on this Mac because I’m frequently on the road. I have dumped all the external drives and only have one computer to maintain, therefore having simplified my life greatly. FYI, I am three levels deep in backup methods (i.e., Time Machine, CCC, and Backblaze).
My fear is having my machine lost, stolen, or somehow destroyed while on the road, and therefore being out of touch with my clients for the week or so that it would take to get another 64gb/4TB MBP.
Does anyone have a methodology by which they keep two identical Macs in sync with a minimum of fuss and effort? One caveat, the solutions cannot be cloud-based because I’m often in places that have restricted or at least very slow web access. I just need the two machines to be synced up when they are both at home on the same WIFI network.
Thanks in advanced
