    Microsoft Work Folders for Windows 7

    Finally out of beta!

    Download: x64 (MSU), x86 (MSU) / Known Issues

    With Work Folders users can store and access work files on personal computers and devices, often referred to as bring-your-own device (BYOD), in addition to corporate PCs. Users gain a convenient location to store work files, and they can access them from anywhere. Organizations maintain control over corporate data by storing the files on centrally managed file servers, and optionally specifying user device policies such as encryption and lock-screen passwords.

    Work Folders can be deployed with existing deployments of Folder Redirection, Offline Files, and home folders. Work Folders stores user files in a folder on the server called a sync share. You can specify a folder that already contains user data, which enables you to adopt Work Folders without migrating servers and data or immediately phasing out your existing solution. (Source)
    System Requirements

    • Windows 7 Enterprise, Professional or Ultimate (with SP1)
    • A domain account set up with Work Folders
    • A Windows 7 PC joined to your work domain

    To use Work Folders on a PC that’s not joined to your work’s domain, you must upgrade to Windows 8.1.

    Doesn't work on non domain joined or the Home edition of Windows

    That would be the killer feature for me (mix in OSX/Android/WP support and I'll set it up tonight) so hoping they will bring this out in the future.
