Hey guys, ok here goes...


1. Dell Inspiron 6000 Laptop. (Connected via Wireless)
2. Assembled Desktop. (Connected via LAN)
3. Netgear Wireless Router WRG614V6
4. File And Printer Sharing Enabled

Ok, So I kind of use my Desktop as a backup for my files on my Laptop.

I was wondering if there is a way to auto-sync my Laptop with my Desktop so that the folder I choose to sync will autpmatically be updated on my Desktop.

Like the Movies and the TV Shows that I download and my Music. I would like it that when I connect to my home network, all my data would automatically be upto date on my desktop.

Is there any program or setting that can help me do this? I just need it as a backup incase my laptop crashes. And I hate updating every little thing.

Thanks in advance guys.

There is 2 ways you can accomplish this, setup offline files or setup a briefcase, both are given links below:

Note: You will need to make sure "fast user switching" is disabled in order to setup offline files.

I hope this helped. ;)
