    File Sync. (Office XP)

    I have 2 computers that I would like to synchronize folders on. Currently on both computers I have folders with the same names, and when I work on a document in the folder on computer "A" I do a save, and then a save as to the other computer folder. I have read through the synchronize in I.E., but that seems to be geared towards an SQL server.
    I am running Win XP (SP2) on both computers, and Office XP on both. The computers of course are networked.
    Thanks John

    I haven't used either of these myself, but have heard good reviews about them. Maybe one will fit your needs:

    SyncToy for Windows XP
    SyncBackSE - note older <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15>ware version for personal, educational, charity, government, and commercial use.

    Thanks Alan,
    I installed the SyncToy for XP and it did exactly what I wanted. <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16> <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16> <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16>

    Glad to hear that one of my "blind" recommendations works! (I don't have XP installed yet)
