Free collaboration software

Users often have the need to share files with each other or across different computers such as an office and home PC.  There are a number of collaborative software products geared to handle this kind of need but they are usually very expensive. However, I’ve been quietly impressed by Foldershare, a free package that allows you to share multiple files across a dedicated P2P network. Usage is remarkably simple; whenever you update a file, a Word document for example, it is updated transparently and automatically on all the PC’s of the users authorized to share that document. For security, the data is 256-bit AES encrypted and various levels of access permission can be assigned to individual users.  An impressive product. Freeware, registration required, 850KB. http://www.foldershare.com...
