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?

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.
