Offline Files alternatives

krzywis asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I am looking for a piece of software that consists of management console and an agent running in the background and which is responsible for synchronizing users files from laptop to network share once the user connects to corporate network. So as per the title an alternative to offline files.

My scenario
I want to sync C:\Users\KrisW to \\MY_SERVER\UserData\KrisW and back (if the user makes the changes on the server) whenever  user's laptop is on a corporate LAN.

Ideally this would integrate with Group Policy for the ease of administrator and to ensure settings are applied consistently across all devices OR it would allow me to control the settings using registry.

An alternative would be a Dropbox or box.net type-of-solution, but with an ability to put a server on the corporate network and not having to keep the data in the cloud:-)
