Files synchronisation


I want to make a little application which can synchronize files between 2 or more PCs.

The files are the on a server where the PCs are connecting too, if a newer version of the file is on the PC, it should copy it too the Server, if else it should copy it from the server to the PC...

Now how can I see which file is "newer"?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
