The best way (IMHO) would be to point your Documents folder on the
Laptop at the one on the PC and then set it to use Off-line files. That
way if the network suddenly drops while you are editing a file (Word
certainly, creates a temp file in the folder in which the file you are
working on resides - I don't know whether Excel does this)the temp file
won't suddenly be unavailable.
Have a look here for more info on off-line files:
They both are about XP but the principles are the same....
