I haven't done too much research on this, so this is a somewhat open-minded question. Has anyone used Lightroom on multiple machines?

Basically, here's the deal - I have my images mirrored on my desktop and my laptop utilizing a software sync tool. What would be necessary to be able to have the Lightroom settings/info mirrored as well? Any documentation? Thanks. :)

I don't really know...however, my guess would be that if you schedule Lightroom to do its backups daily you could use the backed up files on the mirrored computer. \

My logic is that, if the backup can be used to restore a deleted database, then there's no reason it couldn't be used to generate a library on another computer

just my thoughts...haven't actually tried it.

Move the Lightroom Database files to the same drive as your images are stored and mirrored.

what software do you use to do the mirror??? I have been looking for this kind of software for a while. I have used norton ghost to do backups. but to easaly access those files after backups are made is a pain. I see with lightroom that it can automaticly make backups to another drive on import. The problem is, that if you rename the files say to a shoot name, when it makes backup files, it saves original name. not the new name that you renamed the file to. any advice on this?
