Windows 7 Synchronization of Local Files

Hello, I have a question about Windows 7 File & Folder Synchronization. Here’s my scenario.

Basically, we have a user with a laptop that works from the office and at home. She will create/edit documents locally on her machine when at home. This is dangerous because we don’t any means redundancy towards these documents.
Is it possible to sync all changes of her local drive to a network share when she connects to the company network? Like an automatic sync when she docks her laptop.

Thank you for your time.

I prefer SyncBack Pro for this, over a remote network (2brightsparks.com). It can be scheduled or the user trained to run it regularly (easy) and is very reliable. I like it because the files are real on each end and not specially sync'd copies.
