Looking for a software solution for File synchronization on two different laptop computers.  One is running windows 7 and the other is running Windows vista.  Also, the laptops are in two different physical location.  At work office and at home office.  The amount of data files currently is approx 30GB of data, so not sure online will be best option or not.  Could do portable hard drive but have multiple folders to be sync in various locations on computer.  Tried looking at AllSync application but it seems to only sync to one folder at a time and need to be able to set up multiple folders.  Also looked at dropbox.

I'd look at Synctoy for this. It has the ability to sync multiple folders and can be set to only sync the data that changed.

With Synctoy 2.1 you even get 64-bit support.

You can also script the sync jobs and then setup a task to automatically run the sync job whenever you like.

With you having 30g of data, keep in mind that the more data you change the longer it will take to sync.

See http://www.techsupportalert.com/best-free-folder-synchronization-utility.htm for desktop utilities.
Also see http://www.econtechnologies.com/pages/cs/chrono_overview.html . I have heard good things about it.

Some of the better online options have already been mentioned. Another one that I would like to add is Syncplicity.
