(Cross-posted to several lists)

Hi all --
With all your wisdom, I'm wondering if anyone on this list is aware of a
Windows utility that will allow me to keep two files synchronized at all

Here's the situation:
I'm using RoboHelp HTML to create our online help system that is distributed
to clients. We use Clientele internally to track support calls and maintain
an "answer book." However, we want to be able to link certain answer book
pages to HTML files that are in my RoboHelp project. Unfortunately, when you
attach a file to an answer book page in Clientele, it makes a copy of the
file. There is no way to maintain that live link.
So... I'm wondering if there's a utility that will take that HTML file and
make the copy of it in the Clientele folder always match it. In other words,
I make changes to the HTML file, and it copies that file (with a rename) to
the Clientele folder automatically.

Any help or suggestions would be VERY appreciated!!
