    Folder Redirection
    I am trying to establish a folder redirection for the mac computer. I want it so when a user drops a file into the documents folder, it is copied to a remote destination also.

    Folder Actions allow this. You can turn them on by right-clicking a folder and choosing Configure Folder Actions.

    The AppleScript folder has example scripts that help in understanding how Folder Actions work.

    Wow cool... you would need a folder action to fire off a process. Is the remote destination FTP, CIFS, AFP or just another folder on the same HD?

    Probably an easier thing to do is schedule a rsync nightly.
