Hi, I haven't dealt with Windows Server 2003 but I was wondering if there was a way to synchronize the files with the users so that when someone logs into any computer in the office and does work their work is automatically saved back to the server? Thanks in advance, Dustin

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You can create a briefcase folder in their profile that can be synchronized. However, why wouldn’t you just use mapped drives? The only issue might arise for mobile laptop users and then they could do the briefcase folder synchronization.

    Hi Labnuke99, My main reason is for people in the office that go off site and use their laptops to do work. I will look into the briefcase folder synchronization. Thanks, Dustin

    If I understand what you would like to accomplish and If you are the system administrator, why not consider folder redirection using Group Policy? Your users will save their documents in their My Documents folder and with off-line file synchronization enabled; their documents will be on their computer for out of office access. When they are out of the office and work on documents, the changes are synchronized to the server when they return. You can also set up any server shared folder for off-line file synchronization so you are not restricted to just the Brief Case.
