As far as I am aware the data file for rowpro is on the PC/Laptop on which RowPro is installed. The data is not Online. Synchronising would require exporting the database from one and importing on the other to keep them the same. To confirm ask the question of Pete and his team

If you bought a 5PC license then I believe it is easy to authorize more than one PC to run RP.

I use it on two different laptops in two different locations. Data from sessions are saved locally on the PC, but you can upload them to the C2 logbook.

RowPro is not an online program - it just has a few on-line possibilities: online racing and uploading to the Concept2 Online Logbook.

The RowPro rows are saved in the file rowing.mdb on your laptop or desktop PC.

In the past I have used the RowPro function "Merge Data from Beta" ( Control Center - System Settings - Database ) to merge two databases, but I don't think that is what you want to use.

It is possible to export .row files on your laptop ( Control Center - Rowing Log - right-click on a row and select export ) , and transfer the files to your desktop ( USB-stick or mail ) and import them ( Control Center - Rowing Log - Import - Rowfile - Import - select the file - Open ).

If you collect HeartRate during your rows use "Export Selected Row to:" "Myself@Home", if you don't need HeartRate data you can also use "Export Selected Row to:" "Someone Else".
