    Default Automatically sync folders with flash drive?

    Is there a program out there to automatically sync certain folders with a flash drive when plugged in.

    IE. I save a bunch of stuff in My Documents. I plug my drive in and the flash drive is automatically updated with the new/changed files.

    Thanks!

    Whoa! So there's synch software built into Vista!? Is this in every version or only some versions? I just got a new laptop (HP HDX16t) with Vista Home Premium 64 bit, is it on there?

    Thanks,

    So It should work in all versions

    You can also DL as an app which installs on your flashdrive. Nice for those of us who use machines at work with no admin priv.

    OK, I found the Sync Center on my Vista, but when I plug in my flashdrive it recognizes it as a Media Player and wants to sync it only with Windows Media Player. I cannot for the life of me figure out how to convince it otherwise. I have looked at all the Vista help from MS on my machine and online, no help (as usual).

    Any ideas?
    Thanks,
    Andy C

    No, not yet, I use Office 2003. What does that have to do with Sync Center?

    Office 2007 includes something called Groove which is for syncing.
