This section of the Sync Framework documentation describes the file synchronization provider (referred to as Sync Services for File Systems in previous releases). This provider helps an application to synchronize files and folders in NTFS, FAT, and SMB file systems. The directories to synchronize can be local or remote and do not have to be of the same file system type. This section provides basic conceptual information and how-to topics that include managed and unmanaged code. Additional samples are available in the Sync Framework SDK and on Code Gallery.
