I needed a lightweight simple way of sharing files with a friend and colleague while we were working on a project together, at the time I discovered FolderShare from Microsoft, it was not the normal Microsoft bloat and it just worked.

Microsoft have now renamed in Windows Live Sync and after a slightly rocky start it is now running flawlessly.

Drop a file into the shared folder and it's propagated to all the machines sharing that folder no matter where they are in the world.

As with FolderShare, Live Sync doesn't have any of the bells and whistles associated with collaboration suites, for example it won’t notify you of updates or provide a history of who edited which files, so while it may not be suitable for all applications it is worth a look if you need a simple way of sharing files between people.c
