Chapter twenty one. Using Windows XP on ... > Working with Offline Files

Working with Offline Files

As clunky as Briefcase is, it's no surprise that Microsoft came up with a new way to work with network files when you're on the road. Windows XP Professional lets you store shared network files on your portable PC (or any PC, for that matter) so that they're available even when you're not connected to the network. The next time you reconnect, any changes you've made to the files are synchronized with the version of the files still on the network.

Microsoft calls this working with offline files. I call it a neat way to do what you need to do when you're on the road.
