For games it is easier to just copy your "saves" file from on drive to the other.  There should be a folder for "saves" under the games folder which is normally in the "programs" folder on your system.  I have several games I am playing and so I can play where I lefty off on each system, I copy and paste the folder from the system I play on last to all of my systems which have the game on them.

depends on the type of solution you are looking for?

do you have a network or a simple parallel connection between the PC and the laptop?

To use this program you will have to set up a network drive between the two but it does what you are asking for if you already have a network set up

I use one simple ($30USD) program called SecondCopy. it does the synch for you with easy windows interface.

you can research it for yourself at
