How do I setup a 2-way sync b/t local folder to network folder

I would like to work off my local hard drive rather than on my network b/c of performance issues. I noticed sync center has a 2-way sync but I cannot find how to set it up. Can anyone help?

Josh,
The turorial did not mention anything about its 2-way sync capability. I would like the two way syncing so anyone in my dept not only can view a file I am working on, but they can also modify it if necessary when I am out of the office.

When using Offline Files it defaults to 2 way sync. When you lose network connectivity you can carry on editing the file and then when connectivity is restored your changes are automatically synced to the network location. Equally, if someone else makes a change then your locally stored files will be updated accordingly.

Please note that this process isn't immediate with the syncing being based on your configured schedule.
