I have a file server running OpenSolaris and couple of laptops plus a desktop all running Windows 7. I'd like to sync folders between the laptops and desktop via the server. What would be a good software to do this? Essentially any software that can do two-way sync between smb share and local folder would be fine.

Unison allows the same version of files to be maintained on multiple computing devices. In other words, when two devices are synchronized, the user can be sure that the most current version of a file is available on both devices, regardless of where it was last modified.

There are a large number of programs that will do this (google file synchronisation / synchronization - depending on favoured spelling). One of many is my own program. Comment back here if you want me to say what it is.
