5308-32: Synchronizing network folders

    I've got two machines on a network - one running Vista 5308/32, the other XP
    Professional. Each has a folder named shared0. Is it possible to set
    things up so that placing a file in the Vista shared0 folder also updates
    the XP folder?

    I see that Vista has a network folder synch capability - but not sure how to
    use it. Can anybody point me to a ref doc?

  2. Not sure if anyone's got any documentation out...

    If you try this link:
    http://www.vistabase.co.uk/subcats/submitquestion/feedback.php and describe
    what you'd like to see in detail, then I can get an article written up and
    put on VistaBase within 24 hours :eek:)
