Hi there,

I have a terminal here with Windows XP and a laptop (also with XP). I wan't the contents on each to be identical eg. My Documents, application settings etc.
I have full access to a Windows 2003 server. Should I create a roaming profile so that both my terminal and laptop would synchronise (as well as keeping a backup) to the server? I'm just wondering what the best way to go about it would be. Thanks

Replicator 1-2-3 is a utility, that allows you to replicate one or more files to a number of remote hosts. It comes handy when you need to quickly update files with a new version or simply push a script or utility to your desktop machines, or servers. Replicator has a simple one screen interface. Three step pointers are added for easy navigation. Full feature command line options support running replicator from a batch. Comes handy, when you need to schedule the replication with AT, WinAT or similar programs (needs to be run interactively).
