Perhaps, the most important advance in management in Windows 2000 is offered by Intellimirror, an Active Directory-dependent capability that automates the management of user documents, user settings, and software installation.
Intellimirror can mirror user data automatically, so that critical data is always replicated and also supports client-side caching, which enables users to continue working on so-called offline folders when the network is not available.
