Sharing & Synching Company Data

We are looking at SharePoint Online and want to move a lot of our general file data from our file server to SharePoint.

When we upload this data, are users able to synchronise specific folders and files from SharePoint Online site collections to their local PC's? I understand that you can share data from your personal SkyDrive Pro areas and synchronise using the SkyDrive Pro client, but I wanted to know if it's possible in the same way with site collections.

In essence, I'm looking for a way similar to using offline folders in Windows with a file server.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

you could use SharePoint Workspace 2010 (SPW 2010) to create a synchronized local desktop copy of your SharePoint Online files
