I do not think that this is possible at all. I mean it is not possible to save files in two locations simultaneously. If you find out a way let me know.

However you can use briefcase feature in windows. This is basically a feature where you can save your file in one location and the synchronize at intervals of your choice. This way if you chang or update a file on the network or your local drive they get synchronized. That way I figure you can have your purpose met.

Regards

I still feel that BriefCase is the solution to your problem. However in case you want to make a copy of your files in a different location and automate this process you can lokk into "Second Copy" which is a nice utility for the same purpose. Go to http://www.centered.com for more infromation on second copy.

As far as I am aware there is no way you can simultaneously save 1 file in 2 different locations. What you may be able to do is create a bat file which you can run at the end of the day to copy everything you saved to your HD to the network. In which case you still have to do an extra step.

I work more or less in the same environment and I also like to save my documents in two locations. What I like to do is to work of my harddrive and once I am done with the document I simply do a Save As. Under the Save In selection box simply click the down arrow to the right and change the drive letter, find the subfolder (optional) where you would like to save your document under and click on save. I hope this helps.

Sounds like you nee to visit Karen Kenworthies site for a free utility call "Replicator" you set it up to "clone" files to a different location.. This is nice because both files have exactly the same attributes as opposed to other methods of backing them up. Karen's web site is www.karenware .com/powertools (remove the space when pasting.
