Offline Folders/Sync in Windows XP, Vista and 7 Home?

Offline Folders/Sync in Windows XP, Vista and 7 Home?

I got a Windows Home Server at home which contains my files on Windows Network Shares. I also have two Laptops, one running Windows XP Home and one running Windows Vista Home Basic.

"I do not know of anything part of the operating system that would allow you to automatically sync folders to your home server. Offline file access under Windows XP and Vista Pro would be what you need.

However you may want to look at getting a Dropbox account. It offers exactly what you are looking for but with their server as the central repository. The only unknown is if you could get your home server to sync with dropbox if no users are logged in. I've never tried to do that."

Have you looked at SyncToy 2.0 from Microsoft? I've never tried it, but I've heard positive stuff about it.
