Strengths And Drawbacks
Neither Briefcase nor Offline Files is the final answer to file syncing between local and remote PCs, or PCs that sometimes "go remote" on their own. In fact, there probably is no single, final answer, due to all the vagaries involved: what's right for one setup may not work at all in another.

But Briefcase or Offline Files may be an answer; and can work in many cases. You already have both tools available to you inside your copy of Windows, so it makes sense to try them: You just may find a useful tool that doesn't cost you a penny extra!

What's your take on Briefcase and Offline Files? Do you use them? If not, what alternatives do you employ? Join the discussion!
