Folder Redirection: Local Caching of My Documents
Posted on 2003-03-20
I have a roaming profile.
I've set up a policy to redirect my 'My Docs' to a sharepoint. This works fine - I see 'My Docs' and it looks local, but anything I add to it is actually copied to the network point I've defined.
However, If I disconnect from the network, log in using my cached profile, and open 'My Docs' I can see local copies of the all the files I created on that machine. Is there a way to prevent this happening? (i.e. to ensure that files saved in 'My Docs' are *only* stored on the network).
(Reason for asking is this: If I connect to a computer using the cached profile I only see files created on THAT PARTICULAR COMPUTER. If I am a roaming user and have created (say) 100 documents using a number of machines, I do not want to log on without a network (e.g. to a laptop) and see 10, or 20, or 50 of these documents - I want to see either all of them (in which case I'd use offline folders) or none of them. Seeing just a selection of them will thoroughly confuse me :)
Cheers for any thoughts...
