Yes i know there are many different services like Google Drive, Drop Box, Skydrive etc....but they are all missing something....multi folder monitoring. I don't like having to manually copy certain files just in my skydrive/dropbox/googledrive folder. I want my sync app to look at specific folders on my computer and sync them to my laptop/desktop and the cloud.

Maybe i dont understand how to use these programs properly but, i liked having certain folders all over my drive sync for me effortlessly Plus i liked windows Mesh's additional remote desktop feature.

If anyone has suggestions let me know.

Have you tried symbolic links? Just link whatever into the directory that's being monitored.

Make it a lot easier with a shell extension. (Can't believe they don't bundle something with the OS yet.) Link Shell Extension works nicely for me, there's others, saves typing it out. Right click whatever directory, "Pick Link Source". Go to where you want to put the link, "Drop as symbolic link" (or junction, hardpoint, etc etc, usually want a symlink) and done. It acts like that directory is physically located in that other directory, when it's really elsewhere. The cloud service should pick up on this new directory that just showed up and go on its merry way. If I recall, if you're using XP symlinks aren't available... but it's been a while.
