Almost every day, I will sync my files using briefcase from our server so that i will have access to them at night while working at home. The delima is that often the files become orphaned or corrupted. I feel there is a better way to do this but don't want to spend a lot of time testing a bunch of utilities. We have a VPN which i could access but the file transfer is soooo slow and i realize that is an entirely different discussion. What i would like is one or two recommendations.
My external HD is a Maxtor OneTouch4Mini. There are tools that came with the Maxtor External Drive - even has a sync tool but it doesn't seem to work well when i connect directly to the server (i.e. plug in to the USB on the server - not via a workstation).
