Is there a program out there (please provide name and link please), that will allow the user to do what briefcase did back in the xp days? Basically I have a user that needs to work offline then sync all his/her updates to our server once back at the office.

I was able to hack the registry and get briefcase to install but it is slow as ever on the computer and have several stability issues.

I was thinking something like active sync but i'm really not familar with this so all detailed help would be welcome.

Yep, the offline facility has been a part of the basic OS since Vista.

Right click the folder while connected to the server and try 'make available offline'
