  briefcase 
 
    A  {Win95}/{WinNT}  utility  for  keeping  files  on  two 
  computers  without  permanent  connection  in  sync. 
 
  The  scenario  briefcase  was  designed  for  is  the  combination  of 
  an  office  computer  and  a  {portable}  one  You  connect  the  two 
  before  leaving  your  office,  create  a  briefcase  on  the  portable 
  (if  you  don't  already  have  one  on  it),  then  copy  the  files  you 
  want  to  work  on  while  away  into  the  briefcase.  You  can  at 
  this  point  disconnect  the  two  computers,  take  the  portable 
  with  you  and  work  on  the  files  in  the  briefcase  at  home  or  on 
  the  road.  When  you  get  back  to  your  office  the  briefcase 
  utility  can  automatically  update  the  files  you  changed  on  the 
  office  computer.
