Sync - 2 computers

Hi everyone.

I seem to be running into an issue with sync.

I have 2 pc's with the cloud from a single account installed on each. 1 pc is at my office, and the other at home. Each pc has cloud and sync enabled.

Sometimes when I go home, and try and pick up where I left off at the office, the home versions of the files have not been updated.

At this point, sync treats these files as the latest version, because of course I have opened a file, and as such put a later date stamp on the file.

When I return to work the next day, sync has updated from the home version, a full day out of date.

Could this be I am doing something wrong?

Is the cloud storage not intended for such a simple procedure, which is effectively a shared drive?

My confidence that a recent file will not be overwritten by an older file is gone, and of course that is a concern.

I hope I explained what I am doing clearly, if not please ask.

Thanks !
