    Hello All,

    on Windows there is something called Offline Files, which basically syncs files on network drive to local disk and even if network drive is not available I'm able to work on it and sync after network folder is available again.

    What would such technology be called on Mac?

    If you do some searching around, you will find lots of threads where folks have asked the same thing. All of these threads end in disappointment. There really is no functionality like that on the mac - at least for private servers. Companies like dropbox, though, give this same functionality in "the cloud". Their implementation is really much better than the windows "offline" feature as this one keeps track of past versions.

    Not as transparent as the Windows approach, but rsync is Unix "standard".
