I have not heard of rsync? No, I didn't mean use the local: protocol, but rather run the server locally (and connect by whatever protocol you want) and store your repository on your notebook. I don't trust the Windows sync feature. Do a Google search for rsync, which is an originally Unix-based program for performing smart replication of files and directories (only transmits changed bytes). To run it under Win32 normally requires the Cygwin distribution (which gains you lots of Unix-y tools for Win32, too). However, you can also check this out: http://opensource.se/projects/rsync-bc/ which is a cut down version of rsync that only does the backup functionality (NOTE: I haven't tried this, but I can agree that rsync is very powerful and I have personally nuked files when I didn't do the right thing).
