    Hi,

    Can you provide a recommendation, re file transfers from my Mac <--> Windows XP machine:

    [1] How to sychronize files in a given directory(s) on my WindowsXP machine to be transfered/synch'ed to my Mac machine. Something that would check say once a day automatically when both machines are turned on to see if there are any new files on the WindowsXP dirctories that need to be synch'ed across to the Mac.

    [2] Is there an easy way to arrange for a 1-button push way to open access to my C: drive from my WindowsXP machine (assuming it's shared) to my Mac WITHOUT having to go through the Finder connect mechanism each time. Also I note that whilst the WindowsXP non-root directories that are shared turn up in the Mac list of items in the Finder after connection, the WindowsXP root drive names don't seem to, even though I've connected to them. Any ideas why & how to setup a 1-button click icon which auto-launches access/connection to say the C: drive on my WindowsXP machine?

    Thanks
    Greg

    1) Try Chronoync
    2) When you are connected to the shared drive, drag it to the right hand side of the dock, this will create a shortcut to the shared drive that you can click on the re-establish the connection.
