We have a workstation that is attached to our sbs2011 server which we use to carry out document scanning. For a number of reasons we have to use the  workstation local drive for storage ie the c:\scans location.

The workstation is running Microsoft XP Pro SP3. (32 bit).

Is there an easy way to add this folder to our redirected folders, or to get an automatic sync established to make sure we have a parallel copy on our server?

I have considered re directed files and offline files, but as I see it, they all will use a different location.

Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions??

Many thanks.

It's too bad you don't have this on Vista or Windows 7 and you could use Sync Center, but this program looks like it can do what you want with lots of options

Make the share on the server. Allow full access in NTFS and share permissions.
If fax use ftp for file transfer. Make sure you allow FTP on the SBS server.
If it uses SMTP: Make a new receive connector for the IP address of the Scanner.
Ect.
If it works on XP it will work on server too! Serverr 2008 R2 is more locked down than XP, that's all.
Hope that helps,
Olaf
