    Hello, all. I have recetly switched to the superior Mac platform from Windows. Although OS X is incredible, there is one thing that it appears not to have: an equivalent of Windows XP's Briefcase function. Is there any OS X equivalent to that? Thank you.

    Perhaps it would help to explain exactly what it is you want to achieve.

    .Mac sync and iDisk do more than what I remember Briefcase did, but the last time I used it was when it was first introduced...

    Basically, I have a little USB key that I carry around with me. With Windows XP, I could have my files in a specific folder synced to the key, so I had an updated copy of each file both on my machine and on the key. If I made changes on the computer or the key, I could click "Update" when I connected the key to my home computer, and the files would all be updated. That is all that I want to do. Nothing fancy, but it's very useful.
