I just got a few USB KeyChain Drives, and I'm using them to store my schoolwork. I'm just worried that I'm going to loose it :o .

On network shares, I have the option in the right click context of the folder to "Make Available Offline", but this isn't the case for my USB drive.

Am I missing an easy setting in Windows? Are their any 3rd party utils that do this?

This is an XP Pro SP1 machine, in case you were wondering ;-).

Don't you just love answering your own questions? The answer is "My Briefcase" - and its built into Windows. It's kinda hidden in XP, theres no icon to it, no shortcut on the start menu, nothing.

I did a quick google search reveals a TechTV site, http://www.techtv.com/callforhelp/answerstips/windowstips/story/0,24330,3370236,00.html.
