I have used unison to sync files between Linux and Windows XP. Now I need to sync files between two Windows XP machines. Has anyone done it before?

Yes it is fairly simple. Assuming that you setup a network share, you can just do:

unison.exe e:\photos \\other\photos

I typically just automate it with

unison.exe e:\photos \\other\photos -auto

Whatever command line switches you use between Windows and Linux will work here.

The UI also works just as well.
