Synchronising Sharepoint Online


I am looking for a way to migrate a current Windows Server 2008 folder share to SharePoint Online (Office 365) and continue two way synchronisation thereafter.

Any ideas?

Using Microsoft SharePoint Workspace 2010, you can work with SharePoint sites, libraries, and lists on your desktop computer or laptop, whether in or out of the office. Synchronization of changes between your computer and the SharePoint server are handled in a smooth and efficient manner. Using SharePoint Workspace 2010 can help save you time and help manage your collaboration efforts much more effectively.

I know about that. Thanks.

I am looking for a solution that will synchronise a servers folders (2008 R2) to Office 365 SharePoint Online.

Hi plokij5006,

When you say sync between your local file system and office online, i believe you do want the files to be uploaded on office online as well and then sync these two together.

So Workspace 2010 does the same thing for your which is to establish a sync connector between sharepoint online and your local file share.

You will find other paid tools like dropbox or livemesh or layer2solution are present but they are paid.
