Sync toy from Microsoft - free and simple if somewhat unsophisticated. Also works with SBS:

SyncToy is the answer for sure. You can setup the files you want to sync, which direction you want the sync to go and also set a schedule. Super simple to setup and super simple to understand.

You need to use the physical path.

Not sure how it's mapped in SBS but normally they're under c:\inetpub

there is no path in inetpub as Sharepoint is storing the files inside the database, providing a Webdav interface to access files from Windows explorer. I am not sure if the sync tool can work with webdav/network locations.

Ok - I have loaded WEBDEV, Desktop experience, and spy toy.  I cannot map a drive to http://companyweb/SafetyConnection document library.  I am not sure what to try next.  The goal is to sync SharePoint  document libraries to folders on the server.  I am doing this on an sbs 2008 server
