Free Synchronization Tool for XP SP3 and Vista SP1

Microsoft has come out with a free synchronization tool- SyncToy 2.0 for Windows Vista Service Pack 1 and Windows XP Service Pack 3, it also supports earlier versions of the two clients such as Vista RTM and XP SP2. SyncToy is an easy to use, customizable utility that will help you move, copy, rename and delete files between computers and folders. It can manage multiple sets of folders at the same time; combine files from two folders in one case, and mimic renames and deletes in another. It also keeps track of renames to files and will make sure those changes get carried over to the synchronized folder.

Some of the new additions introduced in the v2.0 are; Dynamic Drive Letter Assignment, True Folder Sync, Exclusion Filtering Based on Name, Filtering Based on File Attributes, and Unattended Folder Pair Execution. SyncToy 2.0 final will offer users the possibility to share end-point folder pairs (Folder Pairs With Shared Endpoints), improved management via the command line interface, a rearchitected synchronization engine, increased reliability, support for encrypted files and for – 64-bit Windows operating systems.

Other inclusions:
Sub-folder Exclusion Enhancements: Descendents created under excluded sub-folders are automatically excluded. Usability improvements for the sub-folder exclusion dialog.
Folder Pair Metadata Moved: Folder pair metadata removed from MyDocuments to resolve any issues with server-based folder pair re-direction setup.
Setup Improvements: Integrated setup with single self-extracting archive file and no extra downloads if you already have .NET Framework 2.0 installed.
Enabled silent install for the SyncToy Installer file.
Removed combine and subscribe actions.
