Hi,
I have the following setup

- Home Server (running Windows Home Server)
- Laptop (Windows 7)
- Desktop (Windows 7)

And I would like to keep files in sync.  The real source is the Home Server and the laptop has some files, whilst the desktoop has some other files.  

For now I have been using Windows Live Mesh to keep it is in sync - however I have grown not to like Windows Live Mesh as it is poor at managing bandwidth and scheduling.

Any suggestions / recommendations on what is a good product that provides 3 way sync (and doesn't involve the cloud!)

Thanks
A.

You can also look at SyncBack. The free version should do what you want.

Here is the list of what each version does:
