For sharing a file easily you need to make a network drive.

After that you can share your folder in your whole network.

Do you want only to sinchronize the files..or what do you want to do with them?

=======================
Try the <a href=”http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/2009.04.utilityspotlight.aspx?pr=blog”>RichCopy utility</a> from Microsoft Technet. Another alternative is the <a href=”http://www.2brightsparks.com/downloads.html”>Syncback utility</a> from 2Brightsparks. Both utilities can be configured to run as scheduled tasks.

    If you want to autocopy the files to the target folder you can you "SyncToy" from Microsoft site. It is easy to use and can be scheduled.

    The Easiest way to do it without using a third party application is the following : 1- On the source where the (xml)files resides create a new notepad 2- type the following ( copy *.xml "The destination folder") 3- Save the notepad as a (.txt) file then change the extension from (.txt) to (.bat) 4- Start===> Setting ===>Control Panel ==> Schedule a Task to run this batch file upon your needs. Best Wishes.
