Have the owner of a major client who has 2 pc's in 2 different homes and a laptop that he wants all the files from My Docs, Desktop etc sync'ed between them all.  Would like to have SBS server involved for backup purposes. No VPN's set up yet. Large amount of data because of personal pics of family.  
What is best stable solution?

Hello,

One option is to use folder redirection and offline files: http://www.msterminalservices.org/articles/Configure-Folder-Redirection.html

This will store all the files on the server and sync them to all the PCs. You would need a VPN and the PCs would need to be in the domain.

Thank you jjmck for  a good option.  Unfortunately, I cannot add them to the domain as two of them are Home editions.  Should have mentioned that.

Here are more options:

http://www.2brightsparks.com/syncback/  (The SyncBack Freeware edition is free)
http://www.superflexible.com/ (I would recommend this one)

You need to upload all files to an online storage (Like Amazon S3) first, and then using the tool to synchornize between the PCs and laptop.

You can use S3 to backup your server too.
