I have a desktop and a laptop that I use for development. I have several things like school work, website projects and game projects that I am doing on both machines. Today I spent almost an hour looking for a library that I built a few months back. Versions of things vary from the laptop to the desktop. Things are just way out of hand.
Ideally, I would like to be able to store my files via ftp to my webhost. This way I can get files from school if need be. I have never used CVS, so I really dont know what it can do.
How does everyone else organize their files and projects so they are synchronized and they dont get lost?

Look into SourceGear's Vault http://www.sourcegear.com/vault/index.asp
- It is free for one person
- Better than MS Visual Source Safe
- Can be access over the web
I love it basically.
PS If you don't read the founder's blog you should think about it http://software.ericsink.com/ He even has his own little indie project now!

I know this has been hashed around several times here and on the old Dexterity forums - you might want to do a search on the subject (I hope that doesn't sound snubbish - it's not intended to.)
I use Perforce (http://www.perforce.com/perforce/loadprog.html) .

I use Perforce, mostly because it's cross platform. It has a free 2 user, 2 client workspace version.
Another thing I've done, recently, is used a USB hard drive to hold projects (mostly because of a stupid IDE I have to use that stores full paths in it's project files). I set the drive letter for it to the same one on both my desktop and laptop, and just unplug it and carry it around. I make sure I back it up regularly, too :)

Thanks for the suggestions on source control programs.
The USB Flash drive is a great idea and this is probably what I will end up doing. I bring my notebook to school everyday and that should work nicely.
