My data is stored on a server and accessed via a network drive. The server is sometimes down, so at the moment I'm using windows' offline folder synchronization. However I'd prefer using a local copy of my files and have it synchronized to the net drive to decrease local access time. Since I'm the only user accessing my data, a usual synchronization that starts with scanning through all files for changes seems overhead (and takes too much time), I'm looking for a synchronization tool that somehow gets notified as soon as a file is changed locally and then directly synchronizes it. Freeware that can be used without admin priviledges would be prefered.

What about SyncToy as one of the related questions suggests?

does that only sync when a file is actually changed? Oh well, I'll try to convince my admin... – Tobias Kienzler Jan 24 '11 at 10:41
