I have set up my 3Gb Go Flex Home as a network storage drive so that all the files are available on all (3) computers on the network. No problem with this.
However I have not managed to share my MS Outlook files on all computers.
Can someone suggest how I can do this?
I am using Windows 7 on 2 computers and Windows 8 Pro on the main computer and Office 2010

Outlook is just a local client and afaik doesn't support syncing natively, apart from calendar and contacts. I'm not sure what you are trying to do; I guess you want to be able to open Outlook on any of the computers and see all the same stuff, but Microsoft wants you to buy Exchange Server for that.
There are work around with 3rd party software http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/askjack/2011/
You'd think that you could just set up the .pst file on the server and all the clients use the same file, but it is not so simple

If you get any better ideas or find a solution elsewhere, please take the time to post back. Cheers
